Awesome Octogenarian Allen Adds Another On-Course Achievement - May 2019 
 
At an age when most of us hope we'll still just be fit enough to play golf, Brian Allen accomplished something many golfers have never experienced on a course. Celebrating his 80th birthday with the BOGS last Saturday morning, he decided to do things style on the 2nd hole. 
 
Well placed after two good shots, his iron to the green pitched the ball just short, from where it rolled smoothly up to the pin and disappeared into the cup for an EAGLE! As if that wasn't enough, he scored 5 Stableford points into the bargain. 
 
One of his playing partners on the day was our esteemed President Joe Nellis (seen here afterwards with Brian), who, along with his many friends, wished him a very HAPPY 80TH BIRTHDAY. 
 
Re-telling the tale when comfortably back at the '19th', he celebrated his achievement with the odd pint or two - as for his choice of tipple, the suggestion was of course 'Eagle Smooth'! 
'Eagle on his 80th' Brian 
with President Joe
