When a golfer scores a hole-in-one it's a memory they will cherish for the rest of their life.
At Axedale Golf Club that memory is made even more special.
When a player pulls off the feat the club creates a unique hole-in-one trophy to mark the golfing milestone.
The course itself is nestled away surrounded by nature, so it was an easy decision as to what the trophies would be crafted from.
With an abundance of red gums and other trees around the course, when one falls the club ensures the timber never goes to waste.
Former Axedale president Andrew Watson came up with the idea to fashion the timber into the shape of the figure "1" which could then be presented to players as an everlasting memento.
"In the past we had just bought trophies off the shelf," Watson said.
"I had been given a trophy for a hole-in-one years ago that was in the shape of a "1", so I came up with the idea to make a template from it and then found some timber on the course from a fallen tree.
"We also have little engraved plaques on the trophies made from a fella out in White Hills which has the player's name, event, date, distance and sometimes even the club they used."
The trophy even includes a hole where the ball that was used to score the ace can be placed.
It's a tradition at the club that is unique and something that has always been greatly appreciated.
"It simply adds that little bit of authenticity and is literally a piece of our club. Sometimes we're even able to tell the player where on the course the timber came from."
Watson made the trophies for many years until recently when another former-president and now current life member Tiny Lindrea took over the role.
Lindrea has been playing golf for the best part of 40 years and is a hairdresser by trade, but woodwork is another of his passions.
"It's something I've done my whole life, I love pottering around in the shed," Lindrea said.
"Over the years we've built a few houses and I've always enjoyed doing all the little final touches and cabinet making."
He first joined the club in 1980 and has been an integral force behind the scenes for decades.
He was on the committee for 25 years, president from 1984-85 and 1999-2000 and vice-president from 2014-15.
Captain from 1989-90 and 1993-94 in addition to helping out with a raft of other projects around the club.
Lindrea has been making the trophies for the past three years and puts an incredible amount of attention to detail and care into each and every one.
"It's an honour to make the trophies and I've been lucky myself to have two hole-in-ones over the years," Lindrea said.
This year alone he estimates he has already made 10, with three of them occurring all on the same day.
"We had three hole-in-ones on a Saturday and because we've had so many I said we should put a piece of Glad Wrap over the hole," he laughed.
"We've had a strong run of hole-in-ones recently and I've got plenty of trophies that are still to be presented."
Now that competitions are officially back, it certainly won't be long before another member makes an ace.
