Drake makes first hole-in-one of the season at Lamont Hill

Congratulations are due to Charlie Drake, of Vassar, who made a hole in one on the par 3 150-yard fourth hole at Lamont Hill Golf Course, Monday, May 20, 2019.

The shot was witnessed by Lance Jones and Don Haines, Drake said. Course owner Keith Persinger confirmed the hole in one, saying it was the first this year on the course.

Persinger said Drake made the shot on one of only two par 3 holes on the Lamont Hill course.

“That hole is probably the harder of the two,” Persinger said. “It’s just a little uphill, so you can’t quite see the putting surface from the tee box.”

Drake said he made the shot with an 8 iron and went on to shoot 37 for the nine holes.

Nine-hole Lamont Hill Golf Course is located at the entrance to Pomona State Park. For more information, call 785-828-3131.
