THERE’S no higher ac­com­plish­ment in golf than hit­ting a hole-in-one.

It’s es­sen­tially the Holy Grail for any non-pro­fes­sional golfer, and four Proser­pine play­ers have joined that ex­clu­sive club in the past 12 months. Chris Doblo, Harry Gel­latly, Wayne Temby and An­drew McKay have all pro­duced aces at the Proser­pine Golf Club in re­cent times.

Last Thurs­day the four golfers were ac­knowl­edged for their out­stand­ing feat with spe­cial hole-in-one shirts from the golf club. Doblo mas­tered no. 16 with a 7iron while Gel­latly con­quered the ninth with his 3wood.

Temby and McKay both aced no. 13, the for­mer with an 8-iron and the lat­ter with a 5-iron.

All four play­ers agreed it was a eu­phoric oc­ca­sion that high­lighted their re­spec­tive ca­reers.

For Gel­latly, Temby and McKay it was their first holein-ones while Doblo had two pre­vi­ously – but none at the Proser­pine Golf Club.
