Hole-in-one report: Golf-shop assistant scores ace at Kananaskis
If David LaFrance is behind the counter when you arrive for your next round at Kananaskis Country, be sure to congratulate the golf-shop assistant on his ace. LaFrance and his girlfriend Jasmine were playing a round on the Mount Kidd Course when he buried his tee-shot on the eighth hole, finding the flag-stick with an awesome eight-iron from 160 yards away. LaFrance wasn’t the only one celebrating — on that same assignment, Jasmine drained a chip-in for her first career birdie. Two terrific shots!
Ena Spalding completed her personal hole-in-one hat-trick, mastering No. 15 at McKenzie Meadows for her third career ace. Spalding had her trusty 11-wood in hand for a 172-yard beauty.
Seventy-nine years young, Jim Gray carded his second ace on No. 8 at Redwood Meadows. The smooth-swinging senior popped a nine-iron over the pond and watched from 114 yards back as his ball bounced twice and disappeared below ground level.

The third hole at D’Arcy Ranch is a downhill dandy, so Pat Ellis would have been treated to a splendid view of this special shot. Ellis aced that signature assignment with one crack of an eight-iron from 114 yards out.
Also at D’Arcy Ranch, Sarah-Beth Rasmussen made short work of No. 6 thanks to a flawless five-hybrid from the 128-yard blocks.

Leo Casuga skipped the putting portion on No. 11 at Valley Ridge, showing off outstanding aim with his eight-iron on that 130-yard uphiller.
