Holes in One at Genoa Lakes
The Lakes Course at Genoa Lakes Golf Club had some excitement recently during its Men’s Member Guest tournament.
Steve Arnold and Gary Wood both fired holes in one just two groups apart on the 128-yard sixth hole.
They had to split the closest-to-the-pin prize.
According to Chris Detsch, PGA head golf professional at the Ranch Course at Genoa Lakes, it was a 26,000,000 to 1 possibility.
Wood and Arnold both used a 9-iron for their ace.
Also, recently Elizabeth Elwell fired a hole-in-one on the 77-yard, par-3 12th hole using a sand wedge at Genoa Lakes Golf Club Lakes Course.
