September 07, 2012 | 01:38 PM Hole No. 2 at New Salisbury Golf Course is by no means a difficult hole and would probably rank as the easiest in the county because of its length, or lack of length, measuring just 135 yards from the very back tees and usually plays around 120 yards.
But that still doesn't justify the number of hole-in-one shots the par-3 has surrendered this year, beginning in April.
That's when Alan Reed of Palmyra slammed in the first of seven aces on the hole this year.
Ryan Dones, a student at North Harrison Middle School, became the youngest golfer known to strike hole-in-one gold after Reed.
New Salisbury resident Tony Beavers, an employee of nearby Schmidt Cabinet Co., became the first person to ace No. 2 in club championship competition in July. Beavers knocked it in during first-round action on Saturday on his second nine (hole No. 11).
Others to ace the hole this summer were Jon Schmidt, Michael Rigot and Jim Wolfe. Then, I was lucky number seven a couple of Wednesdays ago in a skins game competition.
Plenty of good golf weather remains. We'll see if anyone can extend the impressive number of aces on the hole. Ross Schulz
