Saturday at Beccles Golf Club was a busy morning with three events taking place and two memorable shots being witnessed.
First off was the final of the club doubles between Bryan Debenham and Willie White playing against Brian and Christian Lever.
This was a very close match throughout with the teams still all square playing the 18th. Bryan Debenham then thinned his wedge to the final green and it had disaster written all over it as it was heading out of bounds until it struck a post behing the green and stayed on the putting surface for them to putt out, win the hole and the match.
Following the doubles were the two finalists in the singles event, Nigel Edwards playing Niall Gill.

Niall began with a birdie to win the first hole but encouraged by his invaluable caddy, brother Simon, Nigel reached the turn one up and continued good form to win 4 and 3.
The rest of the members then teed off in a nine-hole competition and with his first shot of the day, Tony Brett hit his first ever hole-in-one at the opening hole, much to his delight.
