Acing the 9th earned a Glenn Ford bragging rights and $500.
The Shuswap resident potted the hole-in-one on the 9th hole at Shuswap Lake Estates Golf Course on Wednesday, Sept. 16. The hole happens to be sponsored by Copper Island Fine Homes, meaning Ford not only aced the hole, but also picked up $500. Copper Island’s general manager Marcus Picton met Ford at the golf course on Sept. 22 to deliver the prize.
In a Facebook post celebrating Ford’s fine shot, Copper Island noted, “It’s an easy game when you don’t have to putt, isn’t it?”
The award-winning Shuswap home construction company said it has been sponsoring events at Shuswap Lake Estates and Talking Rock golf courses since 2011, as well as special events at the Salmon Arm Golf Course.
