July 2 was an exciting day for golfer Ginger Risner. The Stockbridge resident and long-time golfing buddies, Jean Buurma and Eva Lou Mills were enjoying playing 18 holes of golf at the 27 hole Royal Scot Golf Course in Lansing, one of the courses on their Michigan Golf Pass. Then on the par 3, 26th hole, Risner drove her first hole-in-one after 30 years of trying.
“Ginger didn’t get excited,” Buurma said. “She just stood there in disbelief. Eva Lou and I were screaming and cheering. Other, nearby golfers even came over to congratulate her.”
Now that Risner’s accomplishment has sunk in, she laughed and said, “I’m going to work to do better on all of my shots and hope for some more lucky ones.”
