Hole in One Wins Man Car

The news out of Chippewa Valley is exciting. Mike Kell became a lucky man when he hit a hole in one on the golf course last week. Mr. Kell was playing at the United Way golf tournament that held at Lake Wissota Golf Course. On the 11th hole, he sunk the ball with just one shot and that meant he received the keys to a Subaru Impreza.

Mr. Kell is not new to golf, having golfed for the last 45 years. He has been retired from Kell Containers for ten years now and spends some of those days on the golf course. He has played in the United Way tournament almost every year since it first started some 21 years ago.

As he approached the 11th hole, Mr. Kell glanced over at the vehicle. The 159 yard, par 3 hole was not one he thought he could hit the hole at one at. He did not think about the prize as he stepped up. He has hit a hole in one before, at a different golf course. Mr. Kell only plays at the Lake Wissota Golf Course one time per year so he was unfamiliar with the hole.

The United Way employee at the event was Chuck Frenette, who has been involved in the tournament for some time. He has not seen anyone win the hole in one prize since the tournament first started.

Hitting a hole in one is celebration enough for most people, but to win a prize for doing so makes it that much better. If your organization is considering such an event, using Foresite Sports can help you to cover the costs of the vehicle or other prize your offer. This way, when someone does hit that ace, you don't have to worry about paying for it.
