Jim Gallagher, a director of Ilford Golf Club, had a hole-in-one on the 13th in the same competition. He hit a high-drawing three wood into the tough 211 yard, par three hole in blustery conditions, pitching within a couple of feet of the flag before dropping.

The men's section played in the Captain/Pro Challenge on Sunday where captain Ray Stevens and professional Gary Cant played their last match of the season against Phil Millard and Jeff Levitt.

With a good record from the years matches, Ray and Gary were soundly beaten on the 16th hole, three and two.
