Eagle Blitz at Tuross Head Country Club


Mitch McLean eagled both the first and twelfth holes, which according to club captain Bruce Lidbury, was the first time in the club’s history that a member of Tuross Head Country Club had scored two eagles in the same round.

Mitch, who was well know around the club in his junior golfing years, had only renewed his membership the day before, thereby making him eligible for the prize.

He was awarded a dozen golf balls for the eagle on the par 5 hole 1st hole.

The "Eagles Nest "prize was then automatically reset and he then scored another eagle on the par 4 12th hole.

Perhaps, partly due to the excellent condition of the Tuross Head course, these two eagles followed another eagle by local golfer Jim Wade, only a few weeks before.

Mitch demonstrated great generosity and sportsmanship by immediately donating the major part of his prize to the upcoming Junior Golf Programme which is to commence Tuesday February 13th.
