Fourth Hole-In-One in Ultimate 1 Tournament

Wind, rain, sun, and a hole-in-one. All were factors in the 17th Annual Ultimate 1 Tournament held at the Wynyard Golf Club on Saturday, August 9. 176 golfers all set out with the goal of carding a hole-in-one on one of the 18 par threes featured on the course. Serving as the biggest fundraiser for the club, the Ultimate 1 Tournament is the largest tournament the club hosts.

 

This event takes organization and community support to be a success. Community businesses generously sponsor hole-in-one prizes ranging from $10,000-$30,000 as well as closest to the pin prizes for each hole. Golf club members and community members volunteer their time to help the clubhouse staff prepare for the influx of golfers by loading coolers and making sandwiches. Volunteers also give their time to spot on each hole to meet insurance requirements. Co-op Food Store prepared and donated bagged lunches to make transitioning from golfing to spotting or spotting to golfing easier.

 

After going 4 years since the last hole-in-one, the excitement by organizers, participants and volunteers was high when word spread that Denton McGregor broke that streak on Hole 11. McGregor won a $25,000 Mutual Fund sponsored by Discovery Financial.

Cory Babey defeated the hole-in-one maker Denton McGregor for 3rd place.
