David Reiners had a hole-in-one August 09, 2018 on hole 11 at Village Links in GLEN ELLYN, IL.
He used a 5 Iron on the 176 yard par 3 hole.
Witnesses to his great achievement were Brian Higgins and Joe Barbera.
It was the annual Phi Kappa Sigma alumni outing. I was having a decent round, then tailed off a bit, then we got to No. 11. It was one of those elevated tee boxes where you needed to hike up the hill with two clubs in hand because you could not tell exactly how far the flag stood from the lower ground perspective. I got to the top carrying a 4-iron and a 5-iron. But, the hole was a full 176 yards and I never hit my 5-iron that far. But I played a hunch and chose to gamble because I was having a decent day and felt strong. So I got a good swing on it and the ball never flew more accurately. Two hops. A nice smooth roll and as my group would discover later, straight into the cup. The hole was just past a little rise on the green so you could not see the cup from the tee box. So we walked up, and I started looking around for my ball like a dummy, but Joe went straight to the hole and found my Titleist in the bottom. .
