A Hole-in-One Win’s Cash! Board Establishes a New Hole-in-One Pot
At its September meeting the Board of Directors decided to establish a two new “pots” of money to be used to reward any member who shoots an ace during one of our Monday or Sunday tournaments.
In addition to our regular $10.00 tournament entry fee, we will collect an additional $1.00 from every member who enters a Club monthly tournament. This money will go into a “Hole-in-One Pot.” When a member shoots a hole-in-one in a tournament, he gets all the money in the pot, A new pot then will start accumulating.
The policy began with the Club Championship. In that case $2.00 was collected, one for Saturday and one for Sunday. In addition to rewarding a successful member for achieving golf’s ultimate goal of a hole-in-one, this prize should go a long way toward off-setting the member’s bar tab that is bound to accumulate following his round.

Unseen by Buster, his ball started rolling backwards down the hill. Buster felt the ball hit is club and looked down to see resting against the blade of his club. Horrified, he picked up his club which allowed the ball to begin rolling again further down the slope. Buster picked up the ball and placed it where it was originally stopped by his club.
