Two people have aced holes at Meadowlands Golf Club in recent weeks.

Lonnie Staples approached the tee box for hole #4 on the evening of Aug. 21st. He scoped it out, knowing the hole pretty well. Lonnie reached into his bag, pulled out his 4 iron and drove the ball straight down the middle of the fairway. Not sure where his balled ended up, he walked to the hole. Thinking he’d save some time he pulled the flag before searching the backside of the green for his ball. But to his surprise, the ball flew out of the hole as he pulled the flag.

As part of the CalFrac member group, David Symons and his friends James Hurson, Matt Kerr and Levi Van Heinen pulled up to hole number 4 on Sept. 10th. Not an avid golfer, and only playing his third round of the season, David took out his 4 iron and drove the ball down the middle. His buddies all cheered saying, “It’s in, it’s in!”. But David didn’t believe it, figuring it had just rolled over and onto the backside of the green. On approaching, there was David’s ball, nestled in the hole.
