Hole-in-one watch prize

Hole-in-one watch prize

The time was right for a Boughton golfer when she scored a hole-in-one during a recent club competition to be rewarded with a limited-edition BOSS watch as recognition for the achievement.

Gillian Davies, 56, scored her ace on the 99-yard, par-three third at Boughton GC, and the 28-handicapper was rewarded with membership of the exclusive BOSS Watches H1 Club and a specially-commissioned, commemorative timepiece.

She said: “To my delight the ball flew in a nice arch towards the flag. It continued on what looked like a good angle, only to plop straight in just as my partner and I were excitedly thinking that I might make this hole in two.”

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 in 2014 after giving away £600,000-worth of limited-edition mementos in 2013 – and Davies 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.
