Curtis Lotoski poses after his Saturday

Stettler man has two holes-in-one in two weeks

Some golfers, whether professional or recreational, will go their whole career without ever swinging that perfect shot.

Some golfers, whether professional or recreational, will go their whole career without ever swinging that perfect shot that results in a hole-in-one.

Despite the odds, almost every golfer has that dream on their golfing bucket list, and Stettler’s Curtis Lotoski is no different.

The 50-year-old golfer, who has been teeing off for 38 years, managed to cross the hole-in-one off his bucket list on May 15 at Hole No. 2 at the Stettler Golf and Country Club, he hit the ball just right and it plonked right into the hole.

Lotoski, who said he’s “hit the pin and been inches away from the hole several times,” said his success made him giddy with happiness, and he suspects any other golfer would react the same.

With the hole-in-one under his belt, Lotoski picked up his clubs on May 28 and joined some friends to golf at Pheasantback, north of Stettler. It wasn’t one of his normal golfing days, but the weather was gorgeous and his friends were going, so “why not?”

On hole No. 8, Lotoski teed off…and the ball went right into the hole.

“Some people go their whole lives without getting a hole-in-one,” Lotoski said. “My father golfed his whole life and he never did it.”

Giddy before, Lotoski said he was pretty excited after the second hole-in-one.

“Everyone tells me I should buy a lottery ticket,” he said with a laugh.
