I play in a senior golf league at Cliff View Golf Club located in the Falling Spring area of Alleghany County, Virginia. The day I recorded the hole-in-one was Tuesday 6-26-12 on hole #4 a 136 yard par 3 that plays uphill to a distance of 144 yards. There was a slight wind in my face and I selected a 7 iron. The shot was struck pure and never left the pin. The ball left it's mark 3 feet in front of the hole before it found the bottom of the cup.
My playing partners that witnessed the shot were Danny Warlitner, Don Smith and Earl Broughfman. I am 63 years old and have been playing golf on and off for 25 years and until today had never recorded a hole-in-one. The experience of making a hole-in-one can only be described as a moment etched in time, surreal and one I will never forget.
