Market Rasen Golf Club’s men’s senior section held a charity event for the first player to score a hole-in-one.

It had only been running for five weeks when Chris Brooke had an ace on the par three fifth hole.

The challenge raised £121 for the Operation Smile charity which raises money to help children with cleft lips and palates.
