HORSHAM golfer Peggy Muszkieta achieved what most golfers dream of achieving on Thursday.

An elated Muszkieta used her seven iron to tee off on the 17th hole at Horsham Golf Club and watched the ball roll in for a hole-in-one.

“It was very exciting,” she said.

“It’s a par three and it’s a horrible par three – it’s got a sandy desert in front of it.

“I used my seven iron and got over it and we watched it roll to the hole and disappear.”

Muszkieta – who has been playing golf for three and a half years and plays twice a week – said she could not believe it.

“Usually I end up in the bunkers on the 17th,” she said.

The Horsham golfer said her hole-in-one ball would be mounted and her name would be engraved on a silver tray at the golf club.

“It doesn’t happen all that often,” she said.

“I’m the third person to have a hole-in-one since the fires. Everything was destroyed in the fires, so there’s a new silver tray.

"I was absolutely overwhelmed, I felt very special.”

Muszkieta joked the hole-in-one meant she would now have one-up on her husband Roger, who she said had been playing golf for about 25 years.
