50 Years of Holes-in-One!
Updated: Jul 31
Is there anything like the feeling of sinking a hole-in-one? Whether you’ve got beginner’s luck, or have been playing the game for years, there’s nothing like it. Over the past five decades, some lucky golfers have hit the big one, and we just had to celebrate their golfing success! Check out some hole-in-one photos from throughout the years.
Arguably our most challenging course, some call it the most difficult public golf course on Hilton Head Island! Hitting a hole-in-one while out on Fazio is an achievement indeed.
