Pontefract and District Golf Club members Andy Wiltshire (scratch handicap) and Ian Maclaren (8 handicap) defied odds of approximately 1,300,000-1 when both holed-in-one on the course’s par three, 213 yard, seventh hole.

It was the second time in less than a month these odds have been beaten because members Kevin Potter (12 handicap) and Howard White (13 handicap) both ‘aced’ the 17th and 14th holes respectively on the same day at the club’s championship weekend last month.

A total of 10 hole in ones have been recorded at the club in 2016.
