Someone aced #7 at Ellison today about 3-3:30pm.
Yes, number 7, the one that’s over 500 feet with the tee up on the hill by the road!
There was a group of about four people there. It was a windy day, and before the ace I saw another shot look like it was going over the basket into the woods. I think the shooter said “get down”. The disk ended up short about fifty feet! Must have been the wind!
The ace shot went out nice and straight, and curved gently left. The light green disk was easily visible in the clear sky, and seemed to have as much or more power than the previous shot, but was to the left of the hole and seemed about fifty feet in the air when it started to fade back toward the basket.
What happened next is perhaps the most amazing thing I ever witnessed personally.
As I recall, shortly after the disk began to fade at great height above the basket, the orientation of the disk became such that only the edge would have been visible to us, as the disk disappeared while it plummeted like a rock. Then like magic, the light green disk was resting on edge in the basket!
Did we hear a sound? I’m not sure if sound travels fast enough, as it could have been drowned out by the excitement of the players!
One player remarked that he had only heard of one other ace on this hole!
The ace shooter remarked that just before he made the shot he was saying how it had been two years since his last ace!
About two minutes later, In the parking lot , I told the first golfer I saw about the ace. After he made sure I knew which hole number seven was, he matter-of-factly informed me that he had “only” aced number 5 today,
