Aces wild at Hillview

Aces were flying at Hillview Golf Course Wednesday.

Don Crabbe, playing with the men’s club, teed off at 2:30 p.m. for 18 holes. He was having a good round, shooting 1-over on the front nine before holing the 15th hole which was playing about 140 yards. Crabbe shot even par.

“The bonus is the men’s club (group that plays Wednesdays and Saturdays) will throw a little money in the kitty every time they play for a hole in one pot,” said Hillview pro Keith Vandenbrink.

“Most years, the pot gets donated to local charities at the end of the year when no one claims the prize. This year the donation will be a little smaller because Don will be a little bit richer.”

Jack Wallace then teed off with his daughter for nine holes just after 6 p.m. and aced the 197-yard ninth hole.

“Both players received a complimentary hole in one mug which (owner) Jim Atmore fills up a few times with their beverage of choice.”
