Within the space of five play days at Marin Country Club, four golfers shot holes in 1! On Thursday January 24, Doris Rodrigo had her first ever HIO. The Friday, Bob Greene made his first ever HIO. Let the good time continue to roll as on Saturday, Chris Hemmeter made his first ever HIO. And the last in the series, but certainly not least, was made by Bob Widergren, on Tuesday January 29, which was his first at Marin CC.
Here was the final breakdown of Hole-in-one’s
- Thursday January 24th – Doris Rodrigo #16
- Friday January 25th – Bob Greene on #11
- Saturday January 26th – Chris Hemmeter on #6
- Sunday January 27th – No Hole in One
- Monday January 28th – Course Closed
- Tuesday January 29th – Bob Widergren on #16
The odds of making a hole in 1 are 12,500:1! Marin Country Club had a hole-in-1 four times in five play days with 549 rounds played and in addition, MCC is a golf course that has only three Par 3s!
Needless to say, we will have what the folks at Marin Country Club are having!
