Holes-in-One: Roger Parramore, a member at Pinewild, enjoyed a special round of golf while in Miamisburg, Ohio. It was his 60th high school reunion and he was playing a round of golf with some high school classmates at the Mound Golf Course.

During this nine-hole round Roger recorded his 15th hole-in-one on the 157-yard seventh hole using his 6-iron to reach the green. Then he made a birdie on the eighth hole. Then on to a double eagle on the 445-yard par-5 ninth hole — his second shot to the green was with his 3-hybrid club. Folks, that’s six-under for three holes.

Sharing in this incredible round of golf were his high school friends Bob Faulkner Sr., Sherry Barrett and Janet Morris. Well done Roger.

Floyd Johnson, a member at Pinehurst, recorded his first hole-in-one May 30, after 60 years of golf, on the 16th hole of course No. 6.
