Lee-on-the-Solent Golf Club
Course Closed (updated 18 March at 09:36)

In September 2011 the Portsmouth News reported that Lee member Bert Diaper, then aged 73, had successfully made his 10th ace. On this occasion it was on the 17th hole at Lee.

Since that time Bert has aced a further 3 times the most recent being on Saturday 29 April 2017 at the 9th hole whilst playing in the Coronation Cup.

With the most quoted odds of an amateur golfer achieving a hole in one of 13,o00:1 Bert is doing very well and would be a cause for concern for a bookie if a bet was placed on him getting yet another.

Congratulations to Bert, here's to  your 14th ace.
