Twelve-handicap golfer Jim McQuattie has chalked up his fifth hole-in-one.

The semi-retired 61-year-old who plays at Mundesley sank the ace at the 179-yard par three 10th during the monthly stableford competition.

'I saw it bounce and disappear but we weren't sure until we got to the green,' said Mr McQuattie from Trunch.

He has had four holes in one at his home course on three different holes the 7th, 10th and even the par four 15th.

Jim, who took up the game in 1992, had paid a 50p hole-in-one insurance at the bar beforehand which covered the cost of the bottle of Scotch he left on the bar to celebrate his achievement.
