The spooky story of the link between John 

Hamilton's first and third holes, 55 years apart ...

Kippie Lodge Sports Club golf professional
Milltimber, Aberdeen.

During a Kippie Lodge medal competition, John Hamilton (pictured), a Kippie life member and also a Murcar Links member, recorded his third hole in one.

After recognising Roy Summers, himself a guest at Kippie, he was reintroduced to Frank Lawrence, visiting from Wick, who recalled playing with John in Fraserburgh Golf Club’s Junior Section, when John achieved first hole in one at Fraserburgh’s  seventh hole, some 55 years ago.

This time, Frank was playing with Roy in the group behind when John Hamilton, partnered by Derek Johnstone, a Hazlehead member, holed his tee shot. The number of the "aced" hole at Kippie was the same as the "aced" one at Fraserburgh - the seventh!
A spooky coincidence – you couldn’t make it up!
