How Many Holes-in-One Have You Had (per Years played)?

None,null, nada. Been playing since I was about 30, now 70+, and never a hole in one only a few near misses.  I have had a few eagles on par 4 holes, but no aces.  I do have a buddy who has had three while I was playing with him.  I must be his lucky charm as it is the only three he has.

At least you drunk for free a few times !

Ps- "nada" it´s like "nothing", you can translate "none" as "ninguno" or "null" as "nulo".
Spanish lessons for free ;)

Having grown up near the border and on a ranch I sometimes think I can speak Spanish a little.  That was until I actually met some Spaniards.  But around these parts "cero" would have been a more proper choice for what I was saying.  "Null" was actually intended to be my modest association with German.  I have always wanted to visit your homeland but never had the chance.  But it is on my bucket list.

A bit fat 0 in about 24 years of playing, 15 of those as a scratch handicap. My father had 0 for the first 30 years he played then had 3 in a matter of 6 months. So there is hope!

I have 4 holes-in-one.  What is very weird is that 3 of these are on the same hole--the 18th hole at Pasatiempo golf club in Santa Cruz, California all from different tee boxes--202 yds, 165 yds and 143 yds.  I've been playing for 45 years.  These shots are occurred in the last ten years.

Hi GC, I used to play Pasatiempo a lot in the day.    Green Fees were 10 Bucks and 18 had that big deep ditch in front as I remember.    Great course, not long but you had to Golf your Ball to score.     Thanks for the memories.       That was in the 60s.

It's a great course--I'm not a member but a good friend of mine is a member so I play there at least twice a month--actually played there Saturday.  The ditch is still there and getting deeper as the years go by.  Any shot hit below the pin now will roll off the green into a collection area that now exist.  Green fees for non-members are $235--fortunately, I don't have to pay them.

I still have my old school plastic Pasatiempo bag tag. I don't think green fees for non-members were over $100 the last time I played there. 

Another great course in that area is DeLaveaga.

One, in 53 years and I couldn't even enjoy it because I never saw it go in the hole. It was a 175 yard hole over water with an elevated green and I knew the ball was heading right for the flag when I hit it. When our foursome reached the green and the ball wasn't there we started looking all over until eventually, someone in the group finally moseyed over to the hole and took a peek.

Him: "What'd ya hit??

Me: "It was a crappy ball...I"m not sure, maybe a Top Flite XL something or other. I don't remember the number"

Him: "Well holy #?&!.it's here!"

Me: "Where?"

Him: "It's in the cup! Top-Flight XL-3000 #3!"

Me" "Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhggggggggg"

Zero.  

I can't remember ever coming closer than 3 feet in about 40 years of off and on golf. 

I guess I need to improve my iron play.

Nice story!  I didn't see one of mine either due to hitting into the sun.  I hope you pitched all your Top Flite balls...or....put them in the shag bag.

I only had that one ball, I must have found it somewhere, and then used it on that particular hole because of the water. After that, I actually bought myself a trophy...a giant #1 with a hole in the middle for the ball.

I didn't see my first either, it was over hump on the green and we all thought it went over the Green.    Finally a guy  walked up to the hole, looked in and asked if I was playing a Hogan.  I was.  I stlill have that ball.

Possibly 2 in 25 yrs of playing.  I say possibly 2, because the first, I still think my friends were playing a prank on me way back when for my first, because you can't see the hole where it happened.  The second, I could see all day.

Started golf 10 or 11 years ago, and had 3 holes in one in 2012 (same hole, 180 yds) and another one in 2014. They thought the hole was too easy if I could go in one three times so they changed the whole green and bunker layout.!!

    • Very cool.    If you want to upload a video, submit it to Youtube first.  
    • I have to eat some humble pie, but I’m not afraid to out myself here.  I played SO badly this round. Didn’t even score one hole, after I reached 12 strokes.  I haven’t played this poorly in a long time, but I’m undeterred. I will move past this.  All the course management in the world couldn’t help the swing I had yesterday. I literally put an 8 iron mere feet from OB off the tee on one hole. An 8 IRON!!!!! Here are my excuses, in no particular order: Started on 18, because of being with a large work group, social outing, all teeing off together.  I hit too many balls on the range the day before playing, and developed blisters, due to.. Grip and swing changes that I tried to implement, but certainly didn’t have grooved by the day of my round. I had too many swing thoughts in my head on the course (see above). I was paired with two people who had never ever played before, even once, and required (and received) basic swing, etiquette and basic rules instruction from me. I had to leave by a certain time to return to work, and was therefore pressured to finish on time.  Pace of play was very slow for everyone. (5+ hour round). Was playing on a military course in Japan, which allows local guests. The polite thing to say is that the elderly Japanese golfers in several groups directly ahead of us were... ‘deliberate’. I talked so much trash on here about my course management plan, and failed to implement it on numerous occasions because... I hit bad shots with my ‘safe’ clubs, and thereby lost confidence in all clubs, and so I even hit driver a few times, (predictably) badly, late in the round.  And most of all: I wanted to do so well, so badly! I psyched myself up and out of this round before I started. The positives were: I had a string of four 5’s in a row, and was definitely playing well enough during that period. I putted decently. Didn’t make any putts outside of 6’, but only missed 1 or 2 inside of 6’. I hit one drive with my 5w 230 yards or so, and dead straight.  AFTER I hit my 8 Iron next to the woods to a severe side hill lie off the tee (see above), hit an approach well short (of course), duffed a SW 5’ (yuck)... AFTER all that.. I hit my next SW stiff to 2” from about 50 yards, and tapped in for a 5 on a hard, short par 4.  I got to play golf!  As neither a positive, or an outright negative, I confirmed that I’ve developed a consistent one way miss with my irons: a hook. Or as I call it an ‘overcooked draw’, LOL. (Starts straight, or slightly pulled, then curves left, and more left.) This ‘shot’ has almost always been in my bag, but today it’s almost all I seemed to hit! Now I have something specific to correct as I practice.  The quest continues. Next time I’ll make sure to put myself in position to play well, and to keep the pressure off myself.  I’ve not given up on my course management plan, and I already bought the LSW book. It hasn’t arrived yet. Hope to get it and read it before my next round. Would already have it read if it was available on Kindle, (hint, hint).  Good luck to all!         
    • I live in Upstate so no I'm not. The PGA at the Black is an absolutely different story all together.
    • You and I have similar issues. Think of it this way. Though @iacas and @mvmac will disagree with me. Whether you're swinging a putt or a driver, you're using a swinging hit.  I'm going to give you a small piece of wisdom, a scratch golfer gave me when I was about 13 or 14. Hold the club, like you would hold your wife or girlfriend's hand. I was gripping too tight, and Craig my instructor (whom I've known since I was a teenager). "Shane, hold the club, like you're holding Alina's hand while crossing the street." (Alina is my eldest daughter).  The golf club only weighs sixteen ounces, you don't need to strangle it to control it. Caress the club just gentle pressure, you don't even need the 3 to 4 most instructors tell you. Just enough pressure to have control but feel the weight of the head of the golf club.  Try that with your wedges and sand wedges. Make sure you can feel the weight of the head, use a swinging hit. Head steady, not still or rigid. A little movement is ok, even rotational movement toward the target after impact is acceptable. Swinging hit, not hitting swing. Hope this helps.
