Would you like to make an “A-TEN”!
Not like the one you see on your birthday or at your favorite amusement park, but instead for the 100th time in the world. Well, that’s exactly what Violette Kaan-Jara has done.
For her 100th birthday party in Jambu, Fiji, the Australian golfer made headlines when she achieved the feat. The professional golfer is now seeking a centennial hole-in-one on the course at her old club — the Marlin Bay Golf Club.
“I’m still going strong, and I’m having the time of my life,” Kaan-Jara, also known as “Little Violet,” told news outlet 1485 Fiji
The company behind her attempts, Kingdom Resort, has produced a “thank you card” for her achievements. The gifts include seashell pendants and a pair of glasses in memory of her.
The golfer also has her own exhibition at Jambu’s Historic Shopping Village. Her oldest son and one of her two daughters attended her birthday party.
