Competition on tap for $500,000 hole-in-one
The Olympic Peninsula's four golf courses and local businesses are hosting a hole-in-one challenge worth $500,000.
Sponsored by 7 Cedars Casino, Elwha River Casino, M.V. Coho Ferry and First Federal, the event opens up a 100-yard hole at each local golf course - The Cedars at Dungeness, SunLand Golf & Country Club and SkyRidge Golf Course in Sequim, and Peninsula Golf Club in Port Angeles - from Aug.6-Sept. 4.
For $2 per ball, $10 for a dozen balls or $20 for 14 balls, golfers try their luck at getting a hole-in-one.
Those who sink aces are entered into a final, while daily duffers who are closest to the pin may qualify as well.
Finalists converge upon Peninsula Golf Club on Sept. 10, looking to make a hole-in-one on the 150-yard 18th hole. Contestants have one swing at the $500,000 grand prize.
