Paul de Fina could hardly believe his eyes when he sank the ball straight off the 9th tee at Mullum golf course.

Over the moon after a great shot Paul, was extra chuffed when he realised it was worth $522 courtesy of  Bill Nicholls Accountants, who have been a long time sponsor of the 9th hole.

‘I wont be spending it on golf clubs’, said Paul. ‘I’m very happy with the way these ones are working for me’.

Paul used his 3-wood for the shot. ‘It’s the closest I’ve come to a hole-in-one; prior to this I was landing it on the green, however nowhere near the hole.’

‘Two other members also scored a hole-in-one in December – Sam Ridgewell and Richard Long’, said club director, Debbie Cullen.

‘It’s quite unusual to have that many in a few months, showing that Mullum course is at its best with beautiful greens and lush fairways as a result of the recent rains we’ve had.’
