Drought ends at Nevada County CC

After 13 months without a single hole in one scored at Nevada County Country Club, two aces were made during the month of January.

On Jan. 23, Jeff Liddle recorded his eighth lifetime ace, holing out on No. 2 from the upper tee station. Liddle used a 9-iron.

On Monday, Larry Seelig holed using an 8-iron, also from the upper tee on No. 2. The ace was Seelig’s second in his career.

Hole in one at Alta Sierra CC

Blaine Wegley, an Alta Sierra Country Club member, scored the second hole in one of his career on Monday. With the pin tucked into the upper right corner of the green, Wegley aced No. 7 with a 5-iron, the same club he used for his previous hole in one.
