One for the record
It happened once, that’s for sure, but may never happen again!
So said Mrs. E.W. Ripy Jr., who made a hole-in-one at the Whippoorwill Golf course in Harrodsburg.
According to her husband, she had only played golf about a half dozen times in her life. She was so elated over hitting the ball and not the green that she failed to see the ball roll in the cup.
The hole was No. 8, which is a par 3 hole.
