Ace in the hole

The CHSGA outing at the First Tee in Chesterfield on August 9, resulted not only in a lot of fun, but also the latest hole-in-one recorded by an Association member. Bill Crafton, who will turn 86 on September 8, guided a 5-iron shot into the hole on No.8 green. Crafton, a member since 1993, is the first so far this season to record an “ace”.

Prizes were awarded for the low gross and low net scores in four flights, closest to the pin on holes 2 and 15 and the longest drive in each flight on holes 9 (flts 1, 2 and 3) and 16 (flt 4). The winners were:

Flt 1 – Low gross – Dwight Reagan; Low net – Chuck Fleming; Long drive – Win Brooks

Flt 2 – Low gross – Ernie Salvo; low net – Jerry Radcliff; Long drive – Norm Benninghoff

Flt 3 – Low gross – Bill Crafton; Low net – Clarence Adams; Long drive – Jim Emery

Flt 4 – Low gross – Bobby Johnson; Low net – Rich Ellyson; Long drive – John Pecore

Closest to pin, No. 2 hole – Chuck Fleming; No.15 hole – Jerry Radcliff.
