Skegness golfer bosses course to record elusive hole-in-one at Seacroft Golf Course


The time was right for a Skegness golfer when he scored a hole-in-one during a recent club competition at the Seacroft Golf Club in Skegness.

David Woolley, 64, was rewarded with a limited-edition Boss watch as recognition for the achievement.

He scored his ace on the 153-yard, par-three 10th hole at the Seacroft Golf Club.

The 15-handicapper was also rewarded with membership of the exclusive Boss watches H1Club (which offers its members access to exclusive benefits and merchandise) and a specially-commissioned, commemorative timepiece.

He said: “Having only been at the club a few months and still learning the course, I was delighted when I hit a six-iron which landed on the green, took two bounces and then went into the hole - what a shock. But then there was another shock when I went into the clubhouse and picked up the bar bill.”

The luxury German brand has once again pledged to reward club golfers with an exclusive watch for every hole-in-one recorded during a club competition - and Woolley is among the latest to achieve the feat this year.

The scheme is open to any golfer whose club uses HowDidiDo - a free-to-use, web-based social network for golfers - and anybody playing in official club competitions is eligible.

Currently, more than 1,800 clubs use the website.

Stephen Brydon, commercial director for MGS Distribution, the official licenced UK distributor for Boss Watches, said: “Congratulations to David on achieving golf’s Holy Grail of a hole-in-one.

“To the majority of amateur golfers, recording a hole-in-one will be the most memorable thing they achieve in golf - a once-in-a-lifetime experience probably - and we want to ensure they have much better memories than merely a dent in their bank balance after buying drinks in the clubhouse.

“The exclusive Boss watch is available only to golfers who record a hole-in-one. It is designed to provide a constant reminder of the achievement and also help to ensure they’re never late for a tee-time again.

“We also hope it might add a frisson of extra excitement to club competitions for golfers who may not be in with a chance of winning the event, for they know that every time they stand on the tee on a par-three, they are just one shot away from winning a stunning timepiece.”

No extra registration is required to participate in the promotion as all official club competitions are recorded on the HowDidiDo system, so holes-in-one are noted and automatically ratified by the golfer’s club.
