Hole-In-One Contest Offers $100,000 Grand Prize


The Rim Country Rotary Club will host its second-annual Hole-in-One Contest May 19 and 20 at the Payson Golf Course.

The fray affords local golfers and duffers the opportunity to test their links skills for a good cause. All the profits benefit the Rotary Club's youth projects.

The qualifying round for the shoot out will be held 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 19. The finals are on tap for 11 a.m. the following day. During the qualifying round, entrants will be asked to try to score an ace from 100 yards away. Any participant who scores a hole-in-one automatically earns a berth in the finals.

Also, the top 10 closest to the pin finishers earn berths into the finals.

On Sunday in the finals, qualifiers play three holes from 150 yards with one shot on each hole.

The Grand Prize is a $100,000, a Dodge Ram Hemi or Chevy Tahoe.

The alternate prizes are $500 and $100.

Coupons good for five free shots are available from Rotary Club members and at Payson Golf Course.

PMGA to enter?

Among those who might consider entering the Rotary fray are the closest to the pin winners at the Payson Men's Golf Association individual low gross and low net tournament held April 25 at the Payson Golf Course.

The member with the best chance at pocketing $100,000 in the Rotary competition might be Al Lyons. During the recent tournament, he swatted to within 2 feet, 9 inches of an ace on No. 14. Tony LeGault also has the shooting eye for a hole-in-one, as evidenced by his tournament tee shot on No. 5 that left him just 5 feet, 9 inches shy of the flag.

Dean Martinson hit to within 8 feet, 6 inches on No. 8 and Frank Karnes was top dog on No. 2 where he was 10 feet, 6 inches away.
