Local golf enthusiast hits a hole-in-one
July 8 — On the afternoon of June 22, 65-year-old Kevin Justis headed to Diamond Mountain Golf Course to play nine rounds with his wife and friends, what he didn’t know was that he was about to achieve one of the rarest and most impressive feats in the game of golf.
When Justis, his wife, Jane, and friends Bill Muttera, Jeannie Muttera and Jerry Douglass reached the 189-yard hole No. 9, Justis says he took his swing, but no one in the group saw where the ball landed.
“I knew I hit it straight, but it’s almost 200 yards long, and I did not see it go in the hole,” Justis said.
The group walked to the green and began searching for Justis’ ball. However, after a long time of looking with no luck of finding the ball, Justis wandered over to the hole.
