"For a memorable golfing experience using traditional hickory clubs,
come to Leith Links and play on the very turf where golf's earliest rules
After our enforced break for COVID-19, we were delighted to welcome
back our friends from Musselburgh for the 14th match in our series.
The match resulted in a 2½
- 1½ victory for our guests, which means the
overall series now stands at 8-6
to Musselburgh. The match results were -
A truly historic event took place
during the match
Although their match had ended, Jim, Ian,
Matty and Llew decided to play the remaining holes. What a fortuitous
decision that turned out to be. At their last hole - the 2nd due to the
shotgun start and measuring 90 yards - Llew teed off using his
Charles Millar Thistle Niblick. The ball
flew straight and true - right into the hole for an ACE!
We reckon this must be the first hole-in-one ever recorded at Leith Links. As
the original golfers in the 18th century played holes measuring 400
yards plus, we are confident that nobody ever achieved that back then. So
Llew, given the historic nature of what he achieved we should give him
his full name of Llewellyn Jenkins, a place is
history is yours, which in our impartial (?) opinion, should rank alongside
Tiger, Seve, Jack Nicklaus, Young and Old Tom Morris, etc !!
