Hole-in-one report: Dry hits double digits in career aces

Article content continued

The 13th at Maple Ridge is a downhill dandy, so Brian Kot should have been treated to a splendid view of his first ace. Kot thumped a four-iron from about 220 yards away for his special shot.

Grace Beauliua drilled a driver on No. 7 at Collicutt Siding and was right on target from the 140-yard blocks.

Cathy Erickson nailed a nine-iron on the second hole of the Hawk Course at Priddis Greens and her aim was excellent from 98 yards out.

Jeff Younger skipped the putting portion on No. 7 at his home club of Woodside, hoisting a pitching wedge over the water and then making the 118-yard commute to confirm that — as his playing partners were telling him — his ball was at the bottom of the cup.

Holly Quigley and Rob Delowsi can swap stories after both aced the sixth hole at Maple Ridge. Quigley made it seem easy thanks to a splendid seven-iron from 114 yards out, while Delowsi — in just his second season since picking up the sport and one of the rare few who grips their clubs cross-handed — was swinging an eight-iron for a special delivery from the 160-yard markers.

Phil Semmler will be saying only good things about his pitching wedge, his weapon of choice for a 125-yard memory-maker on the third hole at D’Arcy Ranch.

Brian Baert breezed through the second on the scorecard at Lakeside, completing that task with an eight-iron that travelled 155 yards, while Charlene Pearson’s proud mom was among the witnesses for her ace on that same hole — an awesome eight-iron from 101 yards out.
