Second ace

The morning of Aug. 12 was bright and beautiful for Jim Gillis when he teed off at the Comox Golf Club, never realizing he would score the second hole in one of his career at the 120-yard 14th hole.

His playing companions for the morning were Pat Dahle, Frank Martens and Stu Mohler. Gillis never saw the ball go in the hole as a tree blocked his view, so they looked all around the green for the ball before deciding to finally look in the hole.

“Congratulations once again, Jim, from all your friends and the staff of the Comox Golf Club,” said CGC head pro Grant Goudy.
