Two Winners at Hopeman Golf Club!
Hole in ones really do happen, twice on one day in fact! Hopeman Golf Club hosted the Moray Firth Camper and Caravan AM-Am Competition – they decided to enhance the excitement by adding hole in one prizes across the course. Within half of an hour, Neil Snedden and Mark Fowler both scored a hole in one on hole 12, netting them both a cool £10,000. Luckily, our package includes multiple winners on fantastic hole in one prizes! Both Mark and Neil both received £10,000 rather than having to split the prize! Despite both being amateurs, both Neil and Mark showed expert technique (or was it luck?) to find the hole from 150 yards.
Neil originally learnt to play golf at Hopeman’s Golf Club over 40 years ago, which made his first hole in one even more special. “When my ball pitched on the left of the green and rolled into the hole I couldn’t believe it” said an ecstatic Neil – and the fun didn’t stop there!
Hopemans Golf Club’s signature hole The Prieshach was the perfect setting, with the spectacular views across the Moray Firth. On offer was a £10,000 cash prize to any and all participants that scored a hole in one. Paul Lawrie OBE, described the hole as “one of the best par 3s I have ever played”.
The R&A rules state that for a hole in one prize an amateur may accept a prize in excess £500 including a cash prize, for a hole-in-one made while playing a round of golf. This means the Mark and Neil won’t lose their amateur status!
