Terrace golfer lands hole-in-one

Oblivious to the ace, Loralie Thomson wouldn’t believe her husband at first

Terrace’s Loralie Thomson scored a hole-in-one at the Hirsch Creek golf club Mr. & Mrs. tournament in Kitimat last weekend.

Oblivious to the beautiful ace, Thomson preceded to retrieve her tee while her husband Lee watched the ball land in the cup.

He exclaimed that she’d landed a hole-in-one, but she wouldn’t believe it until she reached the green and saw it for herself.

This was the first hole-in-one for Thomson, who’s been playing golf for the past six years.

She aced the par-three sixth hole using an eight-iron.

Don and Janie Olson from Smithers won the two day tournament with 139 points.

The low net winner was Jonathon Aiken and Marlena Silveira from Kitimat with 127 points in two days.

A total of 58 teams drove out for the tournament.
