Hole in One Rules

Hole in One Rules/Downloadable Form as defined by The Oneholer Limited.

  • The stroke must be played in accordance with the Rules of Golf as defined by the Royal & Ancient and the USGA.  
  • The stroke must be played during a stipulated round of golf but not necessarily in a Club competition.  Can also be scored in General Play.
  • A Hole in One made during an interrupted round (weather, illness etc), shall also be acceptable.  
  • A Hole in One scored on a temporary green where the hole size does not exceed 4.25” in diameter shall be deemed acceptable.  
  • The Hole in One must be witnessed and attested by at least one fellow competitor and qualified by a Club Official.
