We almost turned around and went back home! It was raining very hard, off and on, as we headed to the golf course -- but we always believed in the adage "It never really rains on the golf course". The rain softened into a drizzle and we played on. It had mostly stopped raining, although we were soaked, when we approached the 5th hole -- an elevated par 3 over an artificial marsh. I swang my Vokey 50 degree wedge, the ball hit about 4 feet left and short of the pin and rolled to the right. None of us could control our excitement as we watched it drop into the hole! I am 60 years old and after playing (off and on) for about 40 years this is my first hole-in-one!
