Wagga’s Anne Goldsmith certainly wasn’t expecting a hole in one when she teed off on the par three seventh hole at the Wagga Country Club on Tuesday.
As the ball sailed in the air off her seven iron; she knew it was a good hit.
“I thought, ‘Oh this is amazing, it might end up on the green and not in the creek,’” Goldsmith said.
It fell short of the green and did a tiny dip at the end of the creek.
The ball rolled into the hole, and the golf course resounded as Goldsmith and her friends bounced around, celebrating loudly.
“We were all high fiving and leaping about the tee,” Goldsmith said.
“We were behaving more loudly in comparison to men when they get a hole in one.”
The hole in one capped off a great game for Goldsmith who lost a point off her handicap.
Goldsmith has been playing socially for nine years.
Considering it was the highlight of her golfing career Goldsmith called her husband immediately to tell him about her once in a lifetime achievement.
“My husband was absolutely gobsmacked,” she said.
While her swing has been spot on lately, Goldsmith’s thanking lady luck for the hole in one.
“I don’t put it down to skill, it was a total fluke,” she said.
“It’s such a pleasure, as a golfer, you never expect to get one.”
