Gloucester businessman wins £25,000 BMW by registering first ever hole in one

A first hole in one for any golfer is something special - but for Chris Brown his maiden ace secured him a sparkling new motor.

Mr Brown claimed a £25,000 BMW by registering a hole in one at the Nelson Trust's Golf Day at Minchinhampton Golf Club.

The prize for holing out off the tee was a BMW 116d Sport car, courtesy of Cotswold Cheltenham BMW.

The technical director for Gloucester-based software and business intelligence experts the River Agency, Mr Brown couldn't quite believe what had happened.

"It's my first ever hole in one," the 34-year-old said. "It felt like a bit of a dream, even when I was standing by the car, I couldn't quite believe what was happening.

"My family all thought it was a bit of a joke when I told them. I have only been playing golf for three years and to get a hole in one and win a car is amazing."

Andrew Hulcoop managing director of Cheltenham Cotswold BMW said: "We're delighted that Chris registered a hole in one and that he won the car."
