Ron Blair, from Old Town, made his first-ever hole-in-one on #4. Blair, who is 81-years-old, used a driver on the 151-yard par 3. He was playing with Dana Lacadie and Tom Rayk. He is on the course right now trying to become the first person ever to make back-to-back aces on #4. Nice shot Ron. Way to go!
