This seems interesting:
There are approximately 450 million rounds of golf played each year in the U.S
Each course reports 10-15 hole in ones each year
A hole in one is scored once every 3,500 golf rounds
Odds of making a hole in one is 1:3500
Only 1-2% of golfers score a hole in one during the year
Average years of playing is 24
Average handicap of golfers making hole in one is 14
Ball used most often is Titleist (45%), Nike (14%), and Top Flite (11%)

Is there information that is particular to the villages about "hole in ones?"
I've made two. I can't tell you the dates but the first was at the Middleton Golf Course in Middleton, MA 130 yards with a nine iron (13th hole I think) and the other was on the seventh hole of Brockton Country Club in Brockton, MA 185 yards with a five iron.

The first was around 1974 and the second maybe 2003.
