Mitch D - Team Titleist Canada
Had one at Credit Valley #15 189yds on 5/21/2009. Long par3,used 4 hybrid but hole not visible in fog. got to green, thought ball went to back bunker but maintenance worker watering turned off hose and casually says ball in hole and it was.
It was on October 10, 2004. The course was Sawmill Creek in Camlachie, Ontario. #16 - 150 yards on the card playing a little longer that day but straight down wind. Hit a nice PW with a soft draw and landed about a yard form the hole, 1 hop and spun right into the cup.
Played a Pro V1x as always. Still have the ball.
We'll be drawing names from this thread at noon today...last chance to share you story for a chance to win!
I had my first hole in one ever this year and my second round of the season.
It was on April 30th at Cedarhill Golf & Country Club, 9th hole. It was playing at 167 yds, to an elevated green. I used a 6 iron and my Titleist Pro V1 landed 3 feet in front of the hole and rolled into the cup!
I wish I could say the shot was pretty, or well struck, but neither would be true. It came on the 7th hole at The Vancouver Golf Club in BC while I played alongside two friends who were battling out a club championship match. I was tagging along just trying to stay out of the way. The 7th is an uphill, 172-yard hole with a pond guarding the the left-hand side, and the surface of the green is blind from the tee. I remembering teeing the ball back a good yard behind the tee-markers, trying to nail down the perfect yardage. But I came out of the swing and hit the ball slightly thin, shooting it out low with plenty of spin.
I thought nothing of it until we reached the green and the ball was nowhere to be found. Could it be?
I took a deep breath, craned my neck near the pin, and stared hesitantly into the cup. There it was, my Titlesit Pro-v 1x #8 with a blue line marked through the 'T' as always.
There have been many more hesitant, neck-craned stares since that day over a decade ago, but I've yet to be greeted with the satisfaction of seeing that little white ball sitting in the bottom of the hole.

My daughter Emilie, just turned 15 on July 25th and recorded her first Hole-in-One on Wednesday August 24 2011, on hole #5 at The Royal Montreal Golf Club (Blue Course) in Ile-Bizard, Quebec.
She used a 5 Wood on the 151 yard par 3 hole, using a TITLEIST 2 NXT Ball with a Royal Montreal Colored Logo. There were 3 witnesses. It was a front pin location, measuring 151 yds (lazer), playing into the wind, tucked several paces behind the front right bunker. She made her Ace at approximately 9:30 AM on the final Junior Day of the 2011 Golf Season. The Royal Montreal Championship Blue Course has hosted 6 Canadian Opens and the 2007 Presidents Cup.
To date, I have been playing for over 30 years and am currently a 5 handicap and never made a Hole-in-one. I am so proud of my daughter and this has truly made our summer!
Yes, I got my first hole in one on Sunday, three O'clock at Thornhill Country Club, Thornhill, Ontario. Par 3 Hole #12 playing 140, back pin, wind blowing left to right,used an 8 iron, ball was a Titliest NXT , played the wind, ball landed and rolled six feet into the hole. Because the tee is higher than the green my three playing partners all watched the ball go in. My greatest thrill in golf, the only hole in one I had ever seen was on television. In the club bar was pleased that I had purchased the hole insurance,although at the time had only done it for my ego not thinking it could actually happen to me. neil mac donald
My Name is Marilyn Denny. I Hit Two Hole In Ones in Three Days at Las Barrancas Golf Course, Yuma, Az. Marilyn aced the par-3 12th hole on Friday,Feb 8th 2013, using a Gap Wedge, 89 yards. Than on Monday, Feb 11th 2013, using a Pitch Wedge to ace the par-3 Third Hole 98 yards. Both Aces were witnessed by my husband Jerry Denny and two other golfers. Both times using Titleist NXT Tour Golf Balls. I am 64 for years old. So this was so amazing for me as this makes Four Hole in Ones for me. My first one was in Wabuman, Alberta, Canada. The other three were in Yuma, Az
