Springbrook Golf Course congratulates Nick Ranchero on his recent hole-in-one on Hole 17—a feat that few golfers are able to achieve. Nick drove 207 yards with a 3-wood, becoming the first golfer to score a hole-in-one at Springbrook Golf Course during the regular season.

Chad Efner shot the first hole-in-one of 2012 on January 6, the earliest on record, during the unusually warm winter golf season.

Nick is one of Springbrook’s Brooks Links Members, a regular tournament player, and current Partner Best-Ball Champion with his brother, Ed.

“The ultimate dream of a golfer is a hole-in-one,” said Nick Ranchero. “After 12 years of playing golf, I finally got one, and from the back tee on the longest par 3 hole at Springbrook.”

His name will be added to the hole-in-one plaque at Springbrook Golf Course, joining the select group of golfers who have achieved this success.

A few days following the hole-in-one at Springbrook, Kevin Seidenwand scored the first hole-in-one for the season at Naperbrook Golf Course on Hole #8. Visiting from Lakewood, Ohio, Seidenwand commented, “Still can’t believe I got a hole-in-one, something I’ll certainly remember forever!”
