Ben Wintermute had a hole-in-one June 11, 2019 on hole 3 at Heron Lakes Greenback in Portland, OR.
He used a 6 Iron on the 158 yard par 3 hole.
Witness to his great achievement was John Finnerty.
Pretty good day for me! Hole 3 on the Greenback of Heron Lakes, I got second hole in one, first with witnesses. Playing about 158 into a hard wind into the tee and pushing a fade. Pulled a six iron and liked it off the bat. When bending down to grab my tee, I saw out of the corner of my eye the ball disappearing and was pretty sure of what it was. When I was 14, I got my first ace and was playing by myself at the seaside golf course. I called my dad from the cell phone he let me borrow to call him when I was almost done. He still tells me about my frantic voicemail, and at the time, I didnít realize how unfortunate it was that there was not a soul around. This was right around the time that coke commercial was out with a similar theme. Ever since then Iíve thought of what Iíd do if the situation happened again. So I did what I had rehearsed. Let out a primal yell and looked for anybody who heard. Luckily, the folks who just cleared the 3rd green looked back to see if I was having a heart attack. Since I had a cart for once, I pointed at them and drove directly to them. I said you have to walk to the hole with me, Iím pretty sure I know what we will find. The photo and video is the exact reaction. Thanks to Heron Lakes for putting up with me at the course and being a fantastic community for me to enjoy. Iím forever grateful..
