Ken Garbutt had mixed feelings as he sank his first career hole-in-one two weeks ago at the Stettler Golf Course.

“It was almost a hole-in-one that wasn’t,” Garbutt said after acing No. 6, one of the toughest holes on the Stettler course.

“I watched it roll in, thinking, ‘This could not happen,’ because I was (playing) by myself.

“I had a few kids come from Hole 5 to confirm the hole-in-one.”

Garbutt used a 3-iron to ace the 199-yard sixth hole while golfing in late August.

It marked the 11th ace on Stettler’s No. 6 since 1980.
