Kid celebrates hole-in-one at Dartford golf venue
3:02pm Wednesday 21st August 2013 in Sport
THERE were scenes of jubilation at Birchwood Park Golf Centre in Dartford when 13-year-old Mason Essam made a hole-in-one.
Playing in a friendly game on the centre’s challenging nine-hole Orchard course, the 12-handicapper reacted to his ace on the 83-yard third hole by throwing his club into the air.
Birchwood Park Golf Centre general manager Melanie Drake said: “Traditionally when you score a hole-in-one, you are expected to buy everyone in the clubhouse a drink.
“However, we let Mason off on this occasion.
“Some people play golf their entire lives without achieving a hole-in-one, “Mason has only been playing for two years, so there’s plenty of time for a few more.”
