PAUL Latham is the oldest member at the Lake Karrinyup Country Club to get a hole in one.

On August 24, the 92-year-old from City Beach was in a competition with four other players when he got a hole in one at the 14th hole on the north course where there were several spectators who immediately started cheering.

Mr Latham said he knew the ball had landed on the green but didn’t realise it had gone in until his competitors began congratulating him.

He has been playing golf for 60 years and said he enjoyed playing because he liked the challenge that came with the difficulty of each hole.
