The other foursomes out on the course Aug. 31 knew something spectacular had happened when they heard the air burst with loud screams from a nearby par 3.
Marcia Zeigler had choked down on her pitching wedge to tee off on the par-3 16th hole, which was playing at 89 yards to the pin. The ball bounced on the front of the green and slowly rolled its way toward the hole and right into the cup!
Zeigler's team, which included Chris Hyatt, Virginia Luhring and Della Miller went on to win the day's game.
Teams were given 50 percent of their handicap and each player had to choose their best nine-hole score, front or back, after play to create a combined low net team score.
Zeigler's team won with a net 148.
