What did you did with your certificate. I put mine in a safe place and can't find it. Although I am told if you call the starter shack of the HIO they will refer you to their pro shop who keeps records.

I guess I was lucky, as the upper-end course near Vegas where I had my one and only hole-in-one mailed me an awesome plaque for free...commemorating the occasion.


Nice art drawing of the hole, the date (4/5/04), the club (8 iron)...and yardage (161 yards).


A bonus was that it was a nice, flushed, high-draw shot...and we watched it disappear.
