CONNOR McLachlan has achieved every golfer's dream.

Some golfers play for a lifetime and never score a hole-in-one, but Connor has managed the elusive feat at just 13 years of age.

Connor was playing in the Invincibles Tour Noosa Par-3 Junior Championship last month when he made the ace.

He said he got the hole-in-one on the 125m 14th hole and he planned to get more in the future.

"It felt really good. I was very excited," he said.

Connor's mum, Michelle, was caddying for him on the day and said they did not see the ball go in because the green was hidden from the tee.

"We were searching for the ball when someone suggested we look in the cup," she said.

"We checked and there it was. It was a great moment.

"I've walked a lot of courses, but this is the first time I've experienced one (a hole-in-one).

"He is playing very well at the moment."

Connor, who has a handicap of 12, has been playing for six years.

He says he wants to be a professional golfer like his idol, Rickie Fowler, when he is older.
