HOWARD – The Apple Valley Golf Course has had a recent slew of hole-in-ones, including a spree of four over the course of 10 days.

“There’s no rhyme or reason (to the hole-in-ones),” golf course general manager Mark Mickley said. “They just come and go in waves.”

Mickley said that the course can go through a dry spell, where there are no confirmed hole-in-ones for more than a month, but other times, like recently, they pile on. He did note that there are several factors that can lead to increased chances for a hole-in-one.

“If you have an easy pin position, it bumps the odds a little bit,” he said.
