Today I got up early because I was adjusting back to pacific time from eastern time. I checked my calendar and it showed I was going to volunteer for three hours. After I got ready, I thought maybe I should check with the guy I am supposed to work for. So I sent him a message and I got reply that he thought it was next week and that he will be busy for most of the day. Since I was all dressed and ready to go, I thought maybe I will just golf with the ladies. I called the pro shop and found out the last group had just heading to hole #1. The course is only a few minutes away so I changed to my golf outfit while my hubby loaded my clubs and cart in the car. Anyway, I was able to catch the group on hole #2 and then joined the group in front as they were only a threesome. I was a bit winded and on the hole #3, I got a par. By the way, this is the ladies group that collects money if you putt more than two putt for each of the hole. Luckily, my putting was working and I was doing 1 or 2 putts.
When we got to hole #8, I hit my ball and the path was pretty straight but was not sure if I made the green. Some of the ladies asked me if I knew exactly where my ball went. I sort of said, it should be below the small mound or just before the green. While walking I started looking for my ball just in case it ended in the first cut rough. I got to the green and there was no ball to be found. I continued checking the back of the green and no ball. The other two ladies helped looked for my ball around the outside of the green. I even went back on the right side of the fairway, just in case. One of the ladies said, check the hole. In my head,
I am thinking why, I would never get it there. I headed for the hole, and OMG, my ball was
in the hole. HOLE IN ONE. I started dancing, got my camera, and the ladies all have me a hug, then more photos. The group behind us was wondering what was happening and then
they all started yelling. Anyway, my very first HOLE in ONE. Hole #8 about 130 yards. By the way when we finished 9 holes, I did not have to pay anything since I didn't putt more than two. The owner of the golf course was in the pro shop and I told him what had happened. Shortly after, I got a beer mug and was told that I get a drink on the house. As a rule I would buy everyone in the club house a drink, but I guess that is not the case on this course. I also received a pin from the manager. It's too bad we didn't see it go in because
it was a bit far to see and the hole was situated below the little mound. This is probably going to be the first and last. LOL.
