After thirty years of golfing and many times getting close, Dennis Becklund made his first hole in one at the Stettler Golf Course on Friday, June 27.
“I’ve been very close,” he said. “I’ve been within a ball width actually, and then within the length of your shoe numerous times.”
He was with his playing partner, Brian Rymal, when he hit the ball but couldn’t find it after.
“I thought maybe I didn’t quite hit it hard enough – though it felt pretty good – and thought it might be in the sand,” he said. Becklund and Rymel searched for the ball and Rymel suggested checking the cup.
“So I went up to the cup and it was in there,” he said. He added that he was pretty surprised to see it in there.
This is the second hole in one at the Stettler Golf Course this season.
