Hole-in-one stories

My first hole in one

I was at Skylinks Golf course in Long Beach on January 4, 2015 at hole number 13, 191 yard par three, blue pin and the green rolling away. Green had sand the whole left and right sides. I drew the ball over the left bunkers( I'm left-handed). The ball bounced gently on the fringe and rolled 20 feet to the hole. Whoopee !!

Hole in one at last

Playing alone on Oct 3,2014 I caught up to a couple of young ladies on the 9 th hole. They asked if I wanted to play thru and I accepted. I just had 118 yds on the previous hole and hit a 9 iron long and made bogey. The par 3 , 9th was the same direction and I decided to play one club less, hence the PW. The ball was directly at the pin and I said to the the ladies this is going to be close. I thought the ball had stopped and as I put my club away a looked up again and thought the ball rolled off the green. Just to make sure I asked the 2 young ladies if they saw what happened. They said I think it went in! Imagine my excitement, I have been playing golf for 51 years and this was my first HIO. Strangely enought I went in my pocket for a ball and happened to pull out a brand new Pro V1. With a bank logo on it. That ball got hit once, and now sits proudly in the trophy Tsawwassen Springs Golf Club unselfishly provided.

Five aces

My first ace came on a practice round for a corporate tournament.The next day the prize was Ford Explorer.It occurred at Royal oaks in Georgia.The second one was Meadowbrook Golf Course in Rutherford County.Hole 2 I hit it past the hole and it slowly rolled back into the hole.My third ace was at Village Greens hole 6 where my playing partners and I were not sure it was in the hole until we rode up to the green. My fourth ace was at Links O Tryon hole 4 where we could not see it going in the hole,but a group heading to an adjoining hole saw it go in and hollered out to us.My fifth ace was at Village Greens hole 9 where my group stood and watched the ball roll until it disappeared. I was disappointed in that I never won any big prize with any of these aces. I was with a golfing partner who had his first and only ace and won 12 dozen golf balls.
