Local golfer Bob Pearce has the distinction of recording three hole-in-ones at the same course, Pattaya Country Club, and uniquely all of them came at different par three’s. To complete the set, Bob needs to sink an ‘Ace’ at the par-3 seventh hole but he will have to wait until the course re-opens after renovations.
To mark Bob’s achievement, he was recently presented with a ‘ball tower’ by fellow golfer Roscoe Langoulant who owns the Sports Bar off 2nd Road. Roscoe has himself a career record of three hole-in-ones but his all came on different courses.
