102 year old woman hits hole-in-one

For better or worse, this is just the kind of story that encourages me to dust off the ol' clubs in preparation for golf season:

Elsie McLean thought she might have lost her ball on the par-3, 100-yard fourth hole at Bidwell Park. Instead, the 102-year-old Chico woman became the oldest golfer ever to make a hole-in-one on a regulation course.

There is a nice par three golf course just east of Smithers that I'm quite fond of. There is also the Smithers Golf and Country Club, but the level of frustration at the Par Three course is a lot less (as is the cost of a round!).

If Elsie McLean can get an ace, then I can too. Progress report will be forthcoming as soon as the course opens.
