I waited 37 years

By: markj126

I've been playing sparingly for 37 years. I took up golf because my brother was playing and it gave us one more thing to compete against each other in. I've just recently retired and been able to play at least once a week. We were playing the Donald Ross designed course in Asheboro, North Carolina. It is a "tight" nine hole course in the center of the city. If you can't hit it straight and know your yardage you'll be in trouble. We were on hole #7 on the first nine and smelling all the fast food aromas from the restaurants just over the fence. The yardage on my Garmin said 112 yards and I chose a 9 iron because it was a little windy and I wanted to control the ball better. Yes, I can hit it farther than 112 yards with a 9 iron. I wanted control and that's what I got. From where the divot was, it hit a few feet behind the hole and spun back in. I hope it doesn't take another 37 years to get another one.

My First Hole in One

By: benc47

I was playing the second round of the James Avery Hill Country Classic in Kerrville, Tx. We are on the Second hole at Scott Schreiner Golf Course, the hole was playing 120 yds with elevated green, you could only see the top third of the flag. I hit my pitching wedge well right at the flag. Two of my competitors say the shot is going to real close, my playing partner says, I think that is in the hole. We go to the green, we only see 3 balls, the excitement starts to build, we look in the hole and there she is, my Titleist ProV1 with the 3 dots. After high giving everyone, I mark my distance on the sign next to the green for closest to the pin. Pretty positive that is going to hold up. I win a skin and closest to the pin, I feeling pretty good. The next day at the conclusion of the tournament the Club pro announces to everyone that I had a hole in one the previous day, everyone congratulates me and he then announces that the tournament had a hole-in-one fund, $800. Now I am really excited. I was happy with the closest to the pin and skin, now I am ecstatic. Perfect time to get my first ace. To top it off, my team finishes second overall. Best golf week ever!

My Hole in One

By: steveh291

We were playing the 11th hole at Stone Canyon Golf Club in Blue Springs, MO on 11/10/14. It is a short Par 3, but the wind was gusting about 2 clubs on that day. The hole was playing 128 yards that day and I hit an 8-iron. The green is tiered high on the left and lower on the right. The pin that day was on the lower tier. My ball hit the green about 15 feet left of the pin, so once I knew I was safely on, I picked up my tee and started walking back. My partner then started saying, "It's feeding, it's feeding." So I turned and we watched it feed down the hill and disappear. It was great!

My First Grande Hole in One

By: raubinr1

My brother Rick and I were have a "playoff" for bragging rights at the Francisco Grande golf course in Casa Grande, AZ. Neither of us were playing very well, but when I got ready to tee off on Number 16 from 163 yards out, I jokingly said..."There's a breeze from left to right, so I'll hit a full 7-iron and let the wind move it to the right a little and put it in the hole." I hit the best 7-iron shot I've ever hit! The ball flew high and straight, with the wind moving it about 3 feet to the right. The ball hit 8 feet in front of the pin - seemed to be stopped from where we were standing. My brother said - "That's really going to be close! I think it's .... in!" as the ball disappeared into the cup! What a thrill -- what a rush of adrenaline. My first hole-in-one in 51 years of golf. I hope the next one doesn't take another 51 years! I don't know who was more excited, me or my brother. Made my whole year!
