That's right! Some of our Snowbirds do play golf when they head back north, but Rich does it in style! Congrats to Rich on his Hole-In-One at a local course in the St. Louis area. Playing with a relative who thought he saw the ball go in, Rich swore he could still see it. Upon reaching the green, sure enough, the ball was resting on the lip of the cup against the flag pole. Once the flag was removed, the ball fell in. Way to go, Rich!
Way to go, Bill! Bill scored a hole-in-one on Monday, April 9 on the third hole (97 yards) of Hawkes Bay. Bill used a sand wedge. This is Bill's second ace. His first one was back in '63. Congrats!
