Having never managed a hole in one yet in my golf life. I can only imagine the lads this past week at
Palmetto Hall Golf Club (Robert Cupp Course) on Hilton Head Island were grinning ear to ear.  Having dunked 3 aces on the 8th hole from the same tees sure must of been a sweet feeling for those golfers and especially at Hilton Head Island.



Press Release

Hilton Head Golf Island Announces Three Golfers Ace Same Hole from Same Tees on Same Day
at Palmetto Hall Plantation Club’s Robert Cupp Course

(HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C.) – Hilton Head Golf Island announces three golfers from different foursomes made a hole-in-one on the eighth hole from the blue tees on the same day at Palmetto Hall Plantation’s Robert Cupp Course on October 19, 2014. This is the rarest feat of its kind on record.

The odds of this remarkable occurrence are about the same as winning the Powerball. The probability of making a hole-in-one for an average player is roughly 12,500-1. The chances of two people acing the same hole on the same day from the same foursome are in the 17 million-1 range.   Add in a third person, all from different groups, hitting from the same tees and the statistics are startling.

During the Amateur Golf Tour Championship sponsored by Golfweek, Daren Green of the Raleigh-Pinehurst Tour holed out first. In the foursome immediately following Green, Jose Talamantes from the Downeast Tour stepped up to swing from the same par-three hole and also hit an ace from 130 yards. Later in the afternoon, JPGA player André Scopone also made a hole-in-one from the eighth hole.

“We generally have a hand full of hole-in-ones annually, but three in one day is unbelievable,” says Dan Moscar, General Manager of Palmetto Hall Plantation Club. “In all my years in the industry, I have never had two aces in one day, let alone three!”

A Heritage Golf Group property, Palmetto Hall Plantation Club features 36 holes of pristine golf immersed in Southern elegance and natural beauty. The Arthur Hills and Robert Cupp-designed courses challenge and reward players of all skill levels. The Club proudly features a 14,000 square foot antebellum-style Clubhouse, as well as luxurious amenities for the entire family. Palmetto Hall Plantation Club is recognized as an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary for its commitment to environmental quality by meeting required standards for protecting the environment, conserving natural resources, and preserving wildlife habitats.
