A BASINGSTOKE golfer had double cause for celebration after hitting a hole-in-one at Weybrook Park Golf Club.

Ian Hill, who is 66 and plays off a handicap of 21, scored an ace at the tricky 164-yard 17th hole at the Basingstoke course. His well-struck shot cleared the lake that guards the front of the green before finding the bottom of the cup.

In addition to bragging rights at the club, the shot earned Hill a limited edition BOSS watch as part of a scheme run by golfing social network HowDidiDo.
