Longtime local golfer Dick Hamilton aced his second career hole-in-one May 10. It was the first hole-in-one this season at Stettler Golf Club.

Hamilton used his trusty eight-iron on the second hole to score the big shot.

It was Hamilton’s second ace at the course, after he accomplished the feat in 1995 at the same hole.

For the Stettler course, it was the 45th hole-in-one for the club.

League play at the course is underway the past couple of weeks, with numbers in all leagues up from last year.

The men’s league has 106 members, while the women have 40 and more than 60 juniors have signed up for the club’s instructional program.

In the men’s league, the latest standings see the Jets leading the Hegberg Division with 50 points, followed by the Habs with 46, the Oilers with 45 and the Capitals with 43.

The Stewart Division has the Penguins on top with 52 points, ahead of the Hawks with 44 and the Islanders with 44, while the Canadiens trail with 37.

Kevin Burkard won the deuce pot of $235 back on May 8.
