Relevant facts about a hole-in-one

Golf is a ball sport involving a lot of precision, during which players have to put the ball in a series of holes by hitting it with various clubs. This elegant sport is one of the few ball sports where the playing field does not have to meet any standardized requirements. It can be as wide as the area allows, it can have slopes and vegetation, but the mandatory condition is to be arranged in such manner that it consists a progression of nine or eighteen holes. All the holes contain a tee box (where the golfers start from) and a putting green (the actual hole). Taking into consideration that precision is the main quality a player must have, the competitors have to play the ball with a succession of strokes or even with a single stroke, in order to win the game. When the ball is hit from the tee directly into the final cup, the player is awarded the score of one, the game is over and the move is called hole-in-one or an ace. This is likely to happen on smaller plain courses, but it involves a lot of luck and precision. Few people have this achievement in their career, and there are special clubs offering golf memberships for players trying to achieve this.

However, it is important to state that not all the hole-in-ones are valid; they depend on the rules of each tournament and game. The official rules of golf have no precise specification regarding the legitimacy of this type of stroke, but despite this, there are some conditions it has to fulfil to be considered valid. These are established according many variables, such as the size of the course and the number of holes or balls played. In addition to this, the official Committee of the tournament must accept it, it has to be attested by a witness and certified in an official document. Gaining a hole in one prize is difficult, because this type of stroke is very rare, and even if a player is extremely skilful, the success depends on a lot of aspects. Needless to say that experience and precision increases the probability percentage, but luck seems to be the vital element. Annually, official golf institutions report about 10 up to 15 such stokes per course and it seems that a hole in one is likely to happen once every 3,500 rounds.


During a tournament, the chance that a player will make a hole in one is of 3,000 to one, while the average probability rate for a golfer to make an ace is 12,000 to 1. As you can see, this is a quite a rare feat, so those who achieve this whilst being a member Q-Golf will benefit immensely. This hole-in-one club unites players from all around the world who are determined to score a hole in one during their lifetime. And if you do score a hole-in-one, remember it is common for the payer who scores to buy a round of drinks for those who are present at the bar of the clubhouse.
