Hole in One Report

Hole-in-One Report is back for 2023

Each week during the golfing season, we write to Golf Canada members who record a hole-in-one, congratulating them and asking if they would like their story to be featured on our website and social channels.

OAKVILLE (Golf Canada) – The well-received hole-in-one report is back for a second year.

During the golfing season, congratulatory emails and digital certificates are sent weekly to Golf Canada members who record a hole-in-one through the hole-by-hole scoring option on the Golf Canada website, Golf Canada mobile app or at your club kiosk.

The stories are compiled and shared on the Golf Canada website and on the Golf Canada social channels.

Read some of the stories shared by fellow Golf Canada members who accomplished this incredible feat.

Zara Kenley, Digby Pines Golf Resort and Spa, Hole #8

Thank you for acknowledging Zara’s hole-in-one. This is her mother, Nancy Kenley, helping her respond to the email as Zara is 12 years old and going into grade 7.

She was super excited about getting a hole-in-one. Zara was playing a round by herself at her beautiful home course and I was driving her in a cart, like I often do. The yardage was about 129 yards and she hit the ball with a 9 iron. It was raining on and off.

I actually recorded a video of the hole-in-one, as I often video her golfing, and especially usually on par 3’s as Zara has been obsessed with wanting to get a hole-in-one since she first learned about them.

We hope to find a program that will track and show the ball, as you can barely see it in the air on the left, then it drops and rolls to the hole.

I could see it through my camera phone, and you can see Zara’s surprised expression as she realized it went in the hole. Her reaction is priceless.

The story is even more exciting, as a few years ago, a member, Joey, mentioned that he jumped in the pond once he got a hole-in-one. Our assistant, Pro Fletcher, had promised Zara that if she ever got a hole-in-one, she could push him in the pond on hole #2. So, this Friday, everyone is meeting at hole #2 at 6pm for Fletcher, Joey and Zara to get pushed/jump in the pond.

Thank you,

Nancy Kenley, on behalf of Zara Kenley

Sean Dolan, Blue Mountain Golf & Country Club, Hole #17


Thanks for your note.

I was playing with my friends, Cathy Holowitz and Joanne and Fred Gardner, when I stepped to the tee on the par 3, 17th. I clubbed up to a 4 hybrid to carry the front bunker. The ball traveled for 130 yards in air before a soft landing and gentle roll saw it find the cup. So much fun.

Take care,


Jake Kearley, Eagles Nest Golf Club, Hole #8

Hi there!

Can't believe I got one! Thank you for the graphic!

Occurred on hole number 8 at Eagles Nest on Thursday, September 1st. I grabbed my gap wedge and hit three quarters swing to a front pin with a 121 yardage. The ball bounced about 10 feet short and right of the pin. The ball then rolled up and right in the front of the hole.

I was playing with my good friend, Conner Rowntree.

Thanks for the message. I was playing with two of my buddies, Tanner Goetz and Brandon Vervalcke. It was 131 yards, and I used a pitching wedge.

Thanks for reaching out!

My friends and I were out in Huntsville earlier this year to enjoy a summer weekend. In my group, I was playing with my friends Savi, Kevin and Alan on the Highlands par 72 course. I was playing from the white tees. I got my hole-in-one on the 8th hole which was playing around 131 yards. The tees are slightly elevated, and you hit down into the green, so I factored this in and chose to hit my pitching wedge. The golf ball that I was using was a Titleist Pro V1x. I hit a slight draw on the shot and the ball landed about two or three feet left of the pin but had some nice right sidespin which spun it right into the hole! It was quite fascinating watching the ball spin about two or three feet back to the right and into the hole which made the moment that much more exciting. 

Thank you for providing me with a nice infographic to commemorate this exciting achievement! 

Kind regards,

Luis Bridgeman

Belinda McNeice, Meadow Gardens Golf Association, Hole #17


It was on hole #17. I used my 4 hybrid had a beautiful straight drive! I was happy to land on the green and couldn’t actually see my ball from where we were. As I approached the green, I couldn’t see my ball so I assumed it went into the sand. I grabbed my sand wedge and headed towards the sandpit. One of the members I was golfing with walked straight to the hole and was like yup it’s in the hole! Somehow he knew! Pretty cool feeling. I was golfing with my girl friend Cindy and a new member that had just joined us on the last three holes. Maybe a good luck charm! Sorry didn’t catch his name. 

Went back to the clubhouse bought some drinks for who was there to celebrate!

Thank you,

Anisur Salim, Dentonia Park Golf Course, Hole #1
