First in 2022 at Llany and first ever hole-in-one in competition golf for Ron !
On Saturday the 2nd of April 2022 playing in the Chronicle Cup Qualifier Ron Fox holed his 5-wood off the white tees at the 1st. A rare 5 pointer in the Stableford comp helped Ron to 34 points.
It was Ron’s first ace in competitive golf after many years of trying and he was congratulated with a wee dram by playing partner Jim Edwards and many others in the clubhouse afterwards.
Congratulations to Andy Lowe on achieving his first ever hole-in-one !
On Friday the 31st of December 2021 playing in the Seniors Roll-up Andrew holed his 16° rescue club at the 16th. It looked as if it might be close commented playing partner Anthony Down as he added 5 points to the card.
To do it at the 16th is especially noteworthy
Is this the last Hole-in-One at Llany this year ?
On Tuesday the 21st of December 2021, Colin Maloney struck a perfect 8 iron to the 6th green.
‘One hop and in it went’ said Colin who in true tradition provided a tipple at the 19th. Thanks, Colin and here’s to your next one.
It’s turning into a habit for Jim !
On Tuesday the 10th of August 2021, Jim Legg playing in the Seniors Swindle struck again with an ace at the 6th hole. It’s only 11 months since we reported Jim’s first ace on the 15th. Thanks to Ian Walker for taking the pic
Roy’s 4th ace
On Wednesday the 23rd of June 2021, Roy Davenport had his fourth ever ace at the 132 yard 4th hole at Old Padeswood Golf Club in the Clwyd and Border Alliance with a sweetly struck 8 iron.
Roy, playing partners Shakey, Snowy and Ian Suckley watched it nudge the pin on the top layer of the 2-tier green and settle by the hole not convinced it was actually in. As the fourball crossed the bridge to the green the ball disappeared into the cup. Congratulations to Roy !

Wonderful news that our Junior Organizer Julia Line today made an ACE at Hole 6!!! Fantastic news and many congratulations
More whiskey in the marquee
On Saturday the 5th of June 2021, Dave Sheppard had his second ever ace at the 6th in the Norman Logsdail Jubilee Tray with a hybrid [5-iron equivalent] club.
Dave and playing partners Steve Pritchard and Mungo Munro claimed not to have seen it go in because of the unusual light conditions [blue skies and glorious sunshire !]
Lucky or unlucky ?
On Saturday the 29th of May 2021, Terry Williams had his first ever ace at the 3rd in the Coronation Cup. It helped him to a winning score of nett 66 in the Board Competition
If Terry had done it 24 hours earlier in the Mizuno Pairs event at Llany he would have scooped prizes worth £10,000 !
Maiden hole-in-one for Jim
On Monday the 14th of September 2020, Jim Legg had his first ever ace at the short 15th with a well struck 6 iron.
We’re not giving away Jim’s age but it’s been a long wait …

First hole-in-one at Llanymynech since ‘lockdown’
After reopening to 2-balls only on Wednesday 13th of May 2020 we only had to wait 11 days for our Seniors section treasurer Adrian “Adi” Jones playing with stepson Harvey, to hole his tee-shot at our long 16th. Thanks for the Twitter ‘pic’ and what super weather 😉 😉
Double aces at the 15th !!!
On Saturday the 8th of February 2020 in the Winter AMAM we had a unique event in that Kenton Cawley playing off 5 and Graham Edwards playing off 18 both had holes-in-one at the 15th. High odds indeed especially as Graham was in the group following Kenton …
On Saturday 18th of January 2020 in the Winter 4BBB 9-handicapper Jason Smith has his first ever ace at the 3rd. Jason’s obviously hoping to get down to 6, like his dad 😉
On Wednesday 20th of November 2019 in the Clwyd and Border Golf Alliance Texas Scramble at Ruthin-Pwllglas Golf Club Brian Beckett’s tee shot disappeared over the brow on the long 219-yard 3rd hole. After a short search the ball was found nestling in the cup …
Probably the longest achieved by a club member ?
