A Hole in One… Twice?!

22 Jun
John Guild after his second Hole In One

Madden’s golf courses have been home to many memories throughout the years. This story though, is a big one, a story worth celebrating.

John Guild, East Gull Lake resident and long-time season member, has been golfing for most of his life. However he turned a new leaf last week after making two holes in one in a one week span.

The Story Straight from John

“This morning, my oldest son Steve and I decided to play a quick Father’s Day 18 holes at the Madden’s Classic Golf Course.

We got to the 2nd hole, a par 3. As we walked up to the tee box, my son said…”OK dad, how about showing me that “Hole In One Swing” you used last Sunday.” We laughed.

I measured the distance (142 yards, same as the week before at the East Course). I decided on a 7 iron (a little extra club given the foggy, misty morning, heavy air), I stepped up to the ball, swung and watched the ball land three feet in front of the green, bounce onto the green and roll in the hole.

The starter heard the yelling, loaded up a free bottle of Vodka and six pack of Red Bull on his cart, and met us at the next tee box. Nice touch.

Two Sundays, one week apart, two holes in one!

It took almost 65 years for the first one…but only 7 days for the second.

Father’s Day 2011 with my oldest son Steve…priceless and never to be forgotten.

Hope yours was also special, John”
