Scott Newberry Aces Hole 13 at MountainView

Alan Doan

On Saturday, July 16, Scott Newberry was playing a round at the MountainView course with fellow golfers Ron Pozzi, Bob Osbold, and Bob Barker.

On hole number 13, Scott pulled out a 5-wood and smacked his tee shot to a back left pin position 134 yards away. The group watched in admiration, and surprise, as the ball landed short of the flagstick and rolled into the hole.

This was Scott’s second hole-in-one, his other occurring in 2007 on hole number 4 at The Preserve.

After the round, Scott dutifully treated the group to a pitcher of beer at the Mesquite Grill.

Congrats, Scott, on a great—make that perfect—golf shot.

Doug Anderson Aces Hole Number 4 at The Preserve

Hole number 4 at The Preserve, a short par 3 from an elevated tee, always presents a tricky club selection. On Aug. 23 Doug Anderson judged it perfectly. With a slight breeze in his face, Doug launched a 9-iron from the purple tees to a front pin position 130 yards away.

Doug watched as the ball flew high and straight, took one bounce, and hopped into the hole, giving him his first hole-in-one after 45 years of playing golf.

The shot was witnessed by Doug’s playing partners Bill Webster, Scott Brewbaker, and Dave Quesnell. Doug treated the three of them, plus three other foursomes, to beer on the patio to celebrate the occasion.

Congratulations, Doug. Hopefully, this first one will open the floodgates.
