What Did You Make First… An Eagle or Bunker Hole Out ?


Recommended Posts

Just curious to hear from those that have been lucky enough to do either ... what did you do first [eagle or bunker hole out] ??

Great question.  My first eagle came back in the 1960's as a teenager with a driver, 4 wood and putt on a par 5. Most of the courses that I played had few bunkers, so I know my first was an eagle. I have at least one eagle in each decade since, then for a total of 13.

After a lot of practice over the years out of the sand, I have been able to get up and down on numerous occasions, but I can only remember a handful of bunker hole outs.

If you play a shorter course Eagles are more likely. I've missed 5 Eagle attempts from inside 15 feet in the past 4 months. Bunker hole outs are more lucky, and I wouldn't call getting it to 2 feet anywhere close to hole out "capable".

bunker hole outs, not anything memorable but I know I've had several.  Eagles, 3. all hole outs from the fairway and I remember every one.  One on a par five and two on par fours.  One from about 160 yards.

I don't think I've ever holed out from a bunker in a round. Then again, I rarely hole out any chips for some reason... I've had my fair amount of Eagles though.

Quite a few bunker holeouts before my 1st eagle

and a couple bunker holeouts between the 1st and 2nd eagle FWIW

A par 5 eagle came first. Next was a hole in one. Then a bunker hole out.

Bunker hole outs are at the bottom of my list on hole outs. I tend to stay out of green side bunkers.

    • Despite 3 putting with the Spider Tour on the first green from 20 feet, I was able to put together a decent round. One tee shot through the fairway into a giant bush for a double, a boatload of pars and one birdie added up to a respectable 77 in windy conditions. I knocked off #14 with a tee shot in the left rough, I drew my layup around a tree to about 110 and hit gap wedge to 20 feet and drained it. 
    • Oh very nice thank you I'll check it out!
    • Check out Tee Time Golf Pass book Last year 3 of your courses were listed as discount destinations Last year's prices: Calderone was $25 weekday and $40 for 4 players before 1pm Cascades was $15 M-F and $25 for 4 players on the weekend Coyote Preserve was $35 M-T before 2; $45 M-Th before 2 and $49 on the weekend from 12-4pm    There are other savings in the book, usually something like just a cart fee.   The book is $35 and my group definitely gets its money's worth.   Now with Covid and the increase of golfers and the increase in prices I'm not sure what this year will bear.

    • I figure if I get everyone on board early enough and can start working on tee times before the season I can pull better deals. I want to say it was Cascades that does groupgolfer deals I played there last year for like $18 so I'll keep my eye on that as well as the golf now app there are usually some pretty cheap deals there. I'm the oldest of the group at 31 so no senior discounts just yet lol
