At approximately 2P.M. on Friday, September 7, the first hole-in-one was made at Cougar Canyon Golf Links on hole# 16, the signature hole, by Butch Curro, a Trinidad resident.
The number 16 hole is an island green elevated on a small mesa and surrounded by the natural desert area, making it an ominouse challenge.
The hole-in-one was Curro's third, but he now has the honor of the first hole-in-one on the new Nicklaus designed golf course.
Curro said, "I hit it sweet, knew it was a good shot.
Travis (Coberly) said 'nice shot' and we watched the ball hit 10 feet from the hole and roll into the cup."
Cougar Canyon wants to congratulate Butch Curro for this historic achievement.
