A member approached the Pro Shop staff and the Club Committee claiming a Hole in One during a social non competitive round of golf.

The Member was playing with another member whom he regularly plays with.

He is now demanding his effort is recognized on the Clubhouse Honor Board and discussions are continuing.

What are your views? What would be your club's position?

Thanks for your perspective.

I did that once, didn't get on the honour board. It's for comp rounds only.

If he was playing a social game with a mate he can claim bragging rights but as far as i can see the club is under no obligation to recognise his hole in one.

Nice shot.

It's a hole-in-one.

No honour board however.

I agree with the other posters - only HiOs in comps count.

The answer is simple - don't play golf except in club comps, just in case you get a HiO and can't claim it. What a drag that would be !

Who would do that?

 

I witnessed one of those (using a driver) on my HIO hole . by an 87 yr old gentleman member.

 

The ball landed at least 50m shy of the green and bounced and rolled its way up to the green and into the bottom of the cup.

 

It was the guys 2nd ever HIO, the first one coming about 60 years before this one.

When playing from the back tee on one of our par 3s, I regularly use my driver and frequently fail to get there, particularly against the prevailing west wind.
