Fred Snell is on a roll. A mem­ber at Coun­try Hills, Snell has cel­e­brated a pair of aces in the span of less than a month.

For his lat­est, he made short work of the sixth hole on the Talons Course at his home hang­out, once again show­ing his out­stand­ing aim with an eight-iron from 121 yards away. With that dart, Snell also com­pleted his per­sonal hole-in-one hat-trick. He waited 24 years for his sec­ond, then just 29 days for his third. Hey Fred, any tips for the rest of us?!

Also at Coun­try Hills, Kam Wong tamed the fourth test on Talons with an awe­some eight-iron from the 141-yard blocks, while Kelly Jones smoothed a seven-iron on No. 10 on the Ridge Course and then made the 165-yard com­mute to re­trieve that lucky ball from the bot­tom of the cup.

Can­more’s Matt Bean added his name to the Minot State Uni­ver­sity Beavers record book with a hole-in­one at the King ’s Walk In­vi­ta­tional in Grand Forks, N.D. Bean con­trib­uted to a team vic­tory with a pin­seek­ing shot on a 186-yard Par-3, the first ace dur­ing the NCAA Di­vi­sion II era for the Beavers. A reg­u­lar at Can­more Golf & Curl­ing Club, a rep­re­sen­ta­tive of Golf Al­berta’s pro­vin­cial squad and a sopho­more in ele­men­tary ed­u­ca­tion stud­ies, Bean’s beauty was a nifty nine-iron with a bit of help­ing wind.

Eric Kos­sakowski and Don Se­menchuk can swap sto­ries af­ter each drained aces on No. 15 at Bearp­saw. The sim­i­lar­i­ties don’t end there. Both were swing­ing sixirons for their spe­cial shots. Kos­sakowski fin­ished his busi­ness from 166 yards out, while Se­menchuk was flaw­less from 160.

Randy Cody will be say­ing only good things about his seven-iron, his weapon of choice for a 161-yard mem­ory-maker on the sixth hole at Maple Ridge.
