I personally have 3 holes-in-one under my name but I would like another one. I promised myself that when I do get my next hole-in-one, it will have a set of car keys attached to it. If not car keys, a pass for unlimited golf would be greatly appreciated. I must be dreaming.
how do golf courses commemorate your ace?
When it comes to scoring an ace, it is the most exhilarating experience you will ever feel on a golf course. And that's why golfers who have more than one hole-in-one look forward to getting another one because the feeling is hard to shake. To commemorate your ace, remember to note down the hole#, total yardage to the hole, the club you used and the brand of ball. It is also important to take down the names of your playing partners who actually saw your shot and possibly, the ball going into the hole. Some people (including me) would recommend that you take a permanent marker and write the hole# on the ball before putting it away in your golf bag. You don't want to lose the magic ball that scored you an ace.
At the end of your round, go into the proshop and tell them you scored an ace. They will congratulate you and prepare your gift which may range from a certificate to a call to the local newspaper.
Examples of gifts for ace holders
If you score an ace at Palm Royale Country Club in La Quinta, CA. you will get a framed certificate with your name on it along with details of your hole in one. You also get mentioned in an upcoming issue of the Desert Sun newspaper. And if you scored an ace on Men's or Ladies' day, you and the entire field will get a round of drinks compliments of the proshop.
If you score an ace at Lynx Ridge Golf Club in Calgary, Canada, you will get a certificate with your name on it and signed by the Head Professional. If you are a member of the club, everyone in the clubhouse will get a round of drinks compliments of the club.
