A HIO is a HIO.

And now I come to think about it a bit more, I just might enjoy a HIO in a social round with old friends more than I would in a comp with 3 complete strangers. It's nice to share magical moments with good friends I reckon.

And when is a comp not a comp? When it's a Wednesday Pro Shop run comp not a Saturday Club comp. I don't have my name on the honour board for my hole in one.
I do agree with you about being with mates, I was playing in a two with my best mate. He was present at the time, but was on his phone sending a message to a girl for Valentines Day...and missed seeing it go in.

And what about any ISG comp that wasn't golf linked?

 

Anyway, well done. I envy you Bump, I've yet to get my first HIO.

 

Dunno if you can "claim it" tho' ;)

I got one in a non comp round, was trying out Southern for the first time and knocked a 7 iron in from 143m on the 12th.  The bloke I was playing with was more excited than me, I didn't actually think it had gone in. 

I took it as a sign from Jebus that Southern was the club for me, haven't looked back. 

 

Where was the flag?....Front, middle or back???

Pretty much all ours are too mate. The guys do an excellent job.

 

But I think there's been a couple that couldn't be linked.
