They say a hole-in-one comes once in a lifetime.
However, for Axedale's Drew Drummond, he is three times lucky.
Drummond had a hole-in-one on Saturday on the par-three 14th at Axedale.
"The pin was centre. There's some mounds on the left and everything tends to kick right," Drummond said.
"As soon as the ball started kicking right, I took my eye off it. Then one of my playing partners shouted 'get in, get in' and I saw the last two metres of it tracking to the hole.
"It dropped in perfectly and just disappeared."
"We probably disturbed a few playing groups around us with the yelling, it's all very exciting when you see one go in," Drummond laughed.
The hole-in-one was the third so far for Drummond who plays off a handicap of two, the first at the now defunct Eaglehawk Golf Club and second on the 16th at Neangar Park GC.
Drummond, 41, started playing when he was 16 to have a bit of fun with his mates.
However, now golf takes a very special place in his life.
"Around 12 months ago I was diagnosed with a brain tumor and it has been a big focus of mine to stay active and do everything I can do beat it, which I am," Drummond said.
"It's now more of a mental escape and fitness thing for me, the golf course is somewhere I can go where I don't have to think about all the other stuff.
"There are the kookaburras laughing at your game and the corellas nesting up in the trees, it's beautiful place to be."
Drummond finished the competition in third place with a stableford score of 36 points.
The division one competition was won by Glenn Laity (11) 37 points and John Neylon second (15) with 36.
