There may be another thread for this. So forgive me. I just scored my first hole in one! It was on the the 17th @ Kings Thorne Forest Hills GC.

What hole's in one have you scored?!

From one Norfolkian to another, well done! My last hole in one was so long ago it has been erased from my aged memory! Certainly have not had one in the last few years.

10/15/2008 - Links PPC, 5th @ Chateau Whistler
1/14/2010 - Links PPC, 7th @ Princeville
8/3/2014 - Links 2003, 3rd @ Valhalla GC
4/12/2016 - Links 2003, 6th @ Augusta National 2012
4/8/2017 - Links 2003, 12th @ Augusta National 2012

I've had some in Links 2003 and Links 2000.

I've only kept track of the ones I've had with Champ difficulty and I've only used Champ in Links 2000 this year. I have not played any Links 2003 this year at all. In 2000 this year with Champ I've had 3. At pro level prior to 2017 I had another 2 in 2000 and I think maybe around 5 or 6 in Links 2003 at pro level. I've only been playing Links maybe 3 years so everything has come in this time.

If we're talking about IRL I had one in, of all places, Bangladesh just after the 1971-72 conflict. Downhill about 160 yds and saw it actually go in which was fun.

As I am now retired I play Links a lot, it keeps my brain active. Over last 3 years - 7 holes in onesaved. Longest hole in one - 315 yd par4 Hole 5 at East Coast Links. Hole in One with NO BOUNCE - 155yd par3 Hole 4 Margarets Bay, but I have to admit I use the easier settings: Amateur,Breezy.Greens firm/fast & Mod pins. I dont want to be a serious pro golfer, I find its more fun especially playing with friends when you are trying to outdrive each other & get the lowest score possible. Links suits all tastes & long may it reign.

From the saved files I have, since 2002, I have 74 aces recorded. The ones prior to 2003, and probably prior to version 1.07 probably would not be viewable any more in the game.

Just scored my second ever hole in one at Fleming Park. Where are the saved holes-in-one files stored? I'll upload the file. :) Pretty boring shot tbh. haha. ... still, they all count.

Funny thing, I scored a double bogie on my second shot after my tee-shot hit the nearest tree. lol.

So it's been quite a start to 2018. Prior to this year I'd only ever scored 1 hole in one in 6 months. I've scored 5 in just over one month, including 2 in 1 round (albeit on the ridiculous 'Infamous').

BULL RUN #16
FLEMING PARK #15
MORAR DUNES #15
INFAMOUS 2012 #1, #13

The shot at Infamous 2012 went straight into the cup which is quite funny to see. The best shot was at Morar Dunes, with a full wind bitterly blasting directly across the fairway.

. I've uploaded them here if you get bored enough and want to have a look:

http://www.mediafire.com/file/bp5rqmy088avtok/Holes_In_One2018.rar

I found my saved shots in the My Documents/Links 2003/Saved Shots folder, so that's where to unpack the files if you are bored enough to have a look.
