Bell tolls with hole-in-one at Warwick charity event

GOLF: Warwick golfer Ross Bell hit a hole-in-one as 100 players hit off in the BUSHkids Charity Day on Sunday at the Warwick Golf Club.

Bell is a regular on the fairways of Warwick and hit his hole-in-one on the 179m 9th.

"I used a four iron and took it easy so I didn't go too far," Bell said.

"I didn't see the ball on the green and didn't think it went through so got my playing partner Ross Hetherington to have a look in the hole," Bell said.

"When he started jumping up and down, I knew it was in the hole."

It is his second hole-in-one, his first was on the 13th.

The one constant with his two holes-in-one was the presence of his wife Trish in the group on the day. This shot was a lot longer than the one on the 13th," Bell said.

"Hitting a hole-in-one gives you bragging rights for a while, especially with a couple of mates who have never hit one."

In reality, he said it was the luck of the bounce of the ball.

"I hit my four iron well on Sunday but you need luck for it to drop in."

BUSHkids psychologist Rebecca Wright said she appreciated the great support from Rotary Sunrise members who sold raffle tickets all day and sold refreshments. "We received great support from the Warwick Golf Club and Phil Covill at the pro shop," Wright said.

"More than 30 businesses sponsored the day ... the community really got behind us."

Emma Bell sang on the deck at the Warwick Golf Club before the presentations on Sunday night.

Peter Millard, Jackie Millard, Gordon Barker and Heath Albrand were the winning combination on the day with the best nett.

Prizes were presented for various categories.
