I've also never had a hole in one. During a tournament several years back I landed a ball in the cup on a 185-yard par 3.  The ball took a chunk out of the lip and hopped out 2 inches left of t

My total golfing experience would probably be 4yrs. I played 2yrs back in 95-96, then gave it up and started in 2009. Never had a hole in one, and like many others never even close. Think the closest Ive been on a par 3 is 12-15 feet from the cup.

Someone else had a similar story to this one though. Back in 95 I was on a long par 3, about 180 (well long to me) with a large pond right in front of the tee box. First ball I topped right into the water. Teed up again, next ball came within 6" of going in for par.

Played for 7 years or so when younger. Was an 8 handicapper.  I'm back into the sport now after 25 years.

In my younger days I holed out a few from 150 yds and in but never an ace though I have hit the flag a couple times.

So I was thinking I would start this for everone to share how long they have been playing and still do not have an ACE

If you have had a hole in one how long did it take you?

Me 15 years and no ACE.....yet

p.s I looked to see if there was another thread like this and never found one.


I've played this game 21 years, never had an ace before.  I had a double eagle two years ago on a 540yd par 5, so I think that's better.

to me I think a hole in one is better just cause people will always ask a golfer, "have you ever had a hole in one?" I have been asked that countless times since I started playing golf, but, I have never been asked if I have ever had a double eagle. funny thing is I have been asked numerous times if I have had an eagle.

During a tournament several years back I landed a ball in the cup on a 185-yard par 3.  The ball took a chunk out of the lip and hopped out 2 inches left of the cup.  While it was incredibly exciting, I couldn't help but be disappointed.  On the plus side, the near-ace helped me and my team forget about an otherwise mediocre 83.

That's worse. I put one on the lip during a solo round last fall. While it was still in the air I was yelling at it to get in the bunker.

I've played for 38 years now or so, have never had one.  I got to about 6" on a fairly short par 3 once.  Have hit the stick several times from varying 'typical' par 3 distances.  It's a combination of luck and skill.  The more skill you have, the more chances you'll get.  But ultimately, it's luck that gives you the bounce that gets your ball into the hole.

Started playing at age 17 and it took me until I reached the age of 41 before I finally got mine---138 yard 9 iron. That was 12 years ago, and the closest I have gotten since then is 2 feet.

Strictly blind, dumb luck for my ace.

    • Saratoga National is a very nice course, it's a bit rich for me but I'm sure you'll enjoy it. The Saratoga Spa State Park course is one of my favorites in the entire area. You won't get the resident rate but it's still a good deal. Saratoga Lake Golf Club is ok, some great holes and some boring holes, a bit scruffy in places. 
    • The guys at my range must wonder where the green or blue marks come from on the balls!  Royal fetish. I think sharpies or dry erase work well on irons, but I have trouble doing these tests on grass with short irons. The grass seems to wipe the mark off. Woods no problem except the faces of my woods and hybrids are black. You have to check very closely.  I would suggest doing the testing off mats.
    • Interesting stuff here..
    • Day 70, August 3, 2021: Grip work, I mean my grip sucks. So I worked on it for ten minutes then hit some chips.
    • Depends on where they’re playing. Most courses around me are fairly wide open. I’ll take Hillandale as an example. Not long at all for the pros, just over 6400 as a par 71.  The four par 3s are mid length holes (one about 165, one about 180 and two that are 190). One of them has an all carry approach and one has a tough green. The longest par 4 out there is only about 430 from the blues, which is driver-wedge for most pros, and a lot of them are fairly straightaway. Most are in the range of 370-400 from the blues. All three par 5s are reachable in two, the longest clocking in at 510 and the shortest a mere 440.  I know this is just one course, but I’ll say a pro can shoot mid 60s pretty easily.
