Bill Allison’s eagle on par 3 helped with the bar takings at Mossman
MOSSMAN Golf Club’s highlight of the week was a hole-inone by Bill Allison, his first “eagle” on a par 3, and this resulted in increased bar takings on Tuesday, November 8.
Playing partners Matty Smith and Robert “Plug” Young hit off the tee on the 123m hole 8, and a comment was made that the NTP marker was fairly close to the hole.
Bill hit his shot sweetly, and they all watched the ball land on the left side of the green and gently roll 4 or 5 metres into the hole.
