The Ace in the Hole Bridge Club is a social Bridge club that has its home at the Bathurst Golf Club.
Being a social Bridge club it is not bound by the rules and regulations of state and national associations.
That means it can effectively be a development club while still offering players the chance to enjoy a relatively serious game of bridge.
Currently there are 12 people who are attending learn to play sessions run by Bob Dillon and it's hoped that number will continue to grow.
“I have never had a beginners’ group this big before," Dillon, who was previously the teacher at Bathurst Bridge Club for six years, said.
"I believe that it is because people are becoming aware that this club is providing a friendly, stress free place to learn and play Bridge while having a lot of fun."
Learning the game isn't a difficult bridge to cross.
Anyone interested in joining the club or learning to play can contact Dillon on 0429784013.
