The Sergeant Pepper hole was conquered this week
with a hole in one recorded by Brent Blow

Out on the course, the 2018 Prince Rupert Golf Club has made its first entry for the record books, with the first hole in one recorded on Wednesday, with Mr. Brent Blow making his mark on Hole Number 2. 

Known as Sergeant Pepper, the hole is surrounded by a number of hazards with bunkers to the right and behind, the approach to the flag requiring precision over power.

Mr. Blow used a pitching wedge on the 135 yard journey to the pin, gaining the admiration of his playing partners for the day Joey Robinson, Brian Tates and Drew Fudger.

The hole number 2 shot wasn't the only highlight reel moment of the day for Blow, who also had an impressive drive from the 17th tee that came up just a tad short of the hole.


The focus for the weekend at the golf course turns to the first tournament of the year, with the Port City Open set to hit the links on Sunday and Monday.

You can still register your  2 person team by calling the course at 140-624-2000.
