Hole-in-one stories

Hole in one

I am a Marine stationed at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, California and was invited, along with other service members in the local area, to participate in the Folds of Honor Golf Tournament held at Bear Creek Golf Club in Murrieta, CA. It was a day that I will never forget. First of all, the members and staff at Bear Creek Golf Club are all class in every sense of the word. They catered to us throughout the entire day and were always expecting nothing in return. So I get teamed up with another Marine, Chris, as well as two couples, Bob and Helen, and Doug and Sue. These are some of the nicest and most welcoming people I have had the pleasure of playing with, and I think we made a great team. The round started off with birdies on the first three holes, and then a string of 3 or 4 Pars and then birdies sprinkled in with a few pars. Once we made it to the Par 3 6th hole, I had it in my head that I would like to have my swing filmed so I could send it in to a swing professional and have it analyzed. So I asked Chris if he would film my swing, and of course he obliged. All throughout the round I had been hitting my irons about 2 club lengths farther than I normally do, so at the urging of Doug (the golf ball whisperer), I decided to hit my 9 Iron into the 135yd hole when I would normally hit my 7 iron that distance. So we got the camera all set up and I addressed the ball, swung the club and watched the ball flight. Once Doug saw the ball flight, he made a prophecy that would come true in mere seconds. The ball lands on a slop about 5 feet to the right of the pin, and just trickles into the cup. The video shows the very early stages of what seemed to be a 15 minute celebration. After the initial shock of the ball actually going in, I then realized that I had not only hit my first hole in one, but that I had won the $500 prize for closest to the pin and a 2014 Cadillac ATS for the hole in one on that hole. The past couple of days have been really cool, telling that story to everyone and having friends and family ask about it. It was a moment in my life that will most likely never happen again, but the people I was able to encounter and befriend, as well as the memories made, will not soon be forgotten.
I want to give a special thanks to the Bear Creek Golf Club for being such gracious hosts and affording me the opportunity to have this happen.
Big shout out to Doug Miller (the golf ball whisperer) and his wife Sue - I really enjoyed getting to know you both.
Also I have to give some huge love to some great people, Dennis and Ralene Sisk - Thank you for the Bear Creek shirt and for being so awesome!
Here is the link to the video on YouTube if you wanna give it a look.


P.S. The ball I hit was a Titleist NXT Tour!

My First Hole In One - 67014

I have only been golfing for 9 years.My first hole in one happened on July 31, 2014 after I had taken a bucket list trip to the 2014 British Open in England (Royal Liverpool, Hoylake). My hole in one took place playing with my Thursday night traveling Ladies golf league. We were golfing at Strawberry Ridge GC in Harmony, PA. I used a 3 wood instead of a driver for Hole#5 which is a par 3. The yardage read 139 yds on my skycaddie. I thought the shot was short but when I didn't see it on the green, I figured it rolled to the back but one of the ladies I was golfing with looked in the hole and saw it! The expression on her face was priceless! Then when I looked, I couldn't help but scream!! So exciting!! So now it was picture time! What makes it even sweeter is that I was the first woman to ace a hole on that course in the 14 yrs. that it has been open. That's my awesome story!!! :-)

First Hole In One

I played in a fundraising event at the Tam-O-Shanter Country Club in West Bloomfield, Michigan on Monday, August 18th. Hole #2 was designated as the "Closest to the Pin hole". It was playing 150 yards to a slightly elevated green. I hit my Pro V1 with an 8 iron, which landed about 5 feet in front of the pin, took one small hop, then rolled right into the cup! Obviously won Closest to the Pin!

1st Hole in One on Par 4

Hey guys, I'm super excited to post this. I have been playing golf since about 6yrs old and have had four previous hole in ones with my first happening when I was 12 yrs old. What is so special about this one is it has been 12 yrs since my last one and this one came on a par 4 along with being the lowest round of my career. I was playing two weeks ago at The Links at Nutters Chapel from the tips and was -3 going into 17. 17 is a 345 yd par 4 that is very tight with water from tee to green on the left side and a very steep hill on the right that can kick a ball into the water if it hasn't rained in a few weeks. I had just bought the 913D3 about two weeks prior and was killing it. So instead of using a 3 iron, as I typically do on that tee box, I went with my new driver and busted it right down the middle. I was confused when I got close to the green, I was expecting to be 15 to 20 yds away but couldn't see my ball anywhere. I jokingly told my step son to check the hole while I was looking for it by the water. To my surprise it was in the hole. I went on to finish the round with an eagle at 18 and come in at a -8 64.
