LUDLOW, Vt. – There was nothing unlucky about Friday the 13 for Anna Piazza, of Toronto. She made a hole-in-one at Okemo Valley Golf Club Friday, July 13, while playing a round of golf with three OVGC members.
Piazza aced the sixth hole using a 3-hybrid from the gold tee, for a 138-yard hole-in-one. Witnesses to the exciting event were Kathleen Friedman, Judy O’Neil, and Judy Rogers. This was the second recorded hole-in-one of the season at OVGC. Piazza’s name will be included on a wall-plaque that hangs inside the clubhouse to recognize the fortunate few who have achieved this amazing feat.
