Hole-in-one stories


I Have been playing golf for 30 years and hit my first hole in one. #3 Riverbend 136 yards slight breeze head on, 9 Iron TM RAC and a ProV1 #1. Ball bounced 8" behind the hole and one hopped back into the cup. My friends all watched and were going crazy. It was AWESOME!

My first Hole in One at age 69

Today was a sunny, little wind type of day in north Texas. Plano, Tx to be exact.

It was a 156 yard par 5, the third par three of the day. I was the first to tee up and I hit an 8 iron to about 4 ft short of the pin. From that point on we couldn't see the ball because the cup was in a swale below our line of site from the tee. I thought it might have gone in because had it rolled past the pin we would have seen it then.

My heart pumping with excitement as we drove up to the green. I expected disappointment but when we could see the entire green my ball wasn't in sight. I asked one of my playing partners to check the cup because I didn't want to be accused of dropping a ball in the cup. My playing partners are that kind of guys :-)

Sure enough my Velocity ball was in the cup. Woo Hoo !!

Good News, Bad News. The good news is I got my first and maybe last hole in one. The bad news is, it cost me $32.65 cents for refresments. They never drink that much except when I buy for holing it out :-)

Any way, a fun day at Los Rios C.C. in Plano, Tx.

The Natural Number 9

We were on our annual "August" outing and weren't even supposed to play this course...it wasn't part of the packaged we had paid for. We saw the course 2 days earlier and thought it looked like a nice course. The hole in one happened on the finishing hole of the front 9. I was in the in 2nd foursome to play, so we had a little heckling group up by the green which is customary with the group I play golf with. From the gam, the hole played 150...that day we figured it measured about 137. I was going to hit a 9 but decided to play a wedge in - GOOD CALL!! Because the hole was hidden, we thought "The Hecklers" were messing with us! It wasn't until we got up to the green and I asked which ball was mine they said "look in the hole!"...what a great feeling to see that Titelist sitting there in the bottom of the cup next to the pin!!

My First Hole In One At Age 25

It was a 4 man scramble charity event at Hankered Hills Golf Course in Pleasant Lake, MI. There was a large hill on the green in front of the hole and the pin was placed to the back. I figured it would play like 140-145, so I chose my 9 iron. We saw the ball land what seemed to be about 3 foot left of the pin then roll towards the pin out of sight behind the hill. I figured it would be close since it made it past the hill that was covering the hole from our sight. The other three guys then shot with one other ball within what looked to be ten foot also left of the pin. As we were approaching the green the guys were saying nice shot to me but they thought the ball within 5 feet was mine. One of the other players said "Wait! This is my ball" I then looked briefly in the rough behind the pin and when I didn't see my ball I said "check the hole!". The first man to the hole said "Chris! It's in the hole! We cheered like crazy.
