The Hole-In-One in Golf is an exceptional accomplishment. In fact, on PGA.com they state, the odds of a Tour player making an ace is 3,000 to 1, the odds of a low-handicapper making an ace is 5,000 to 1 and the odds of the average golfer making a hole-in-one are 12,000 to 1.
The National Hole-in-One Registry also says that there are roughly 450 million rounds of golf played each year in the U.S., or approximately 25,000-30,000 per course. Each of those courses reports between 10-15 aces per year. That means a hole-in-one is scored once in every 3,500 rounds. Only 1-2 percent of golfers score an ace in a year.
Redhawk Golfers Club has our share of ACES. See farther down on this page for the Redhawk Golfers Club hole in one ACES since 2015.
It is "tradition" to celebrate a hole-in-one with a round of drinks hosted by the proud golfer. Redhawk Mens Club has a Hole in One fund to help the lucky golfer offset the cost of a round of drinks. Details of the fund can be found further down on this page. The Redhawk Golfers Club Board decided to also celebrate with a driver headcover that loudly declares the event.

Hole-In-Ones achieved while playing in a Tuesday Tournament since 2015
All Redhawk Golfers Club members are invited to participate in the "Hole-in-One" Fund. Members contribute $5.00 each to the Fund. When a hole-in-one is scored, that member receives the collected monies. The Fund acts as insurance to help the lucky winner with the purchase of the customary round of drinks related to making a hole-in-one.
Note: The Redhawk Golfers Club no longer pays for drinks after a member’s hole-in-one but has added $100 to the Fund and provides a special Hole-in-One head cover to the lucky golfer.
The fund is continuous until the next hole-in- one. A new fund will be started at that time.
Here are the guidelines:
Participation in the Hole-in-One Fund is optional and is in addition to the weekly tournament fees. A roster will be kept of the current participants of the Hole-in-One Fund. You are not officially a participant of the Fund until your contribution has been received.
A player making a hole-in-one must be a member in good standing with the Redhawk Golfers Club and a participant in the Hole-in-One Fund.
A complete 18-hole round must be played from the regulation tees (White, Combo, or Blue) at Redhawk Golf Course during a tournament or in an official Redhawk Golfers Club outing at another course. The Fund only applies to the Redhawk Golfers Club tournaments at Redhawk or official Redhawk Golfers Club tournaments held at other courses.
The hole-in-one shot must be witnessed by at least two other players who are playing in the same group.
The lucky player will receive cash and or a check for an amount equal to what is in the Fund the following week. Either the player making the Hole-in-One, or another member may pay for the customary round of drinks after the round. If someone other than the person making the Hole-in-One pays for the round of drinks, he will be reimbursed from the Fund prior to the lucky player receiving the balance of the Fund.
Once a participant wins the Hole-in-One Fund, all interested members must then contribute $5.00 to participate in the next Hole-in-One Fund.
Once the $5.00 contribution is paid, there are no refunds from the Fund for anyone that wants to drop out.
If more than one hole-in-one is scored on the same day, all hole-in-ones shall share the applicable Fund total as of that date.
The Fund monies will be maintained by the administrator of the Fund and will be managed separately from the Redhawk Golfers Club. Any disputes will be resolved by the administrator of the Fund.
