ELLSWORTH — Warm weather throughout July and early August this year has provided plenty of playing opportunities for local golfers in Hancock County, and three of those golfers sank holes-in-one over the past two weeks.
On Sunday, Gary Doane of Franklin recorded an ace at Blink Bonnie Golf Links in Sorrento with a 7-iron. Doane’s shot took place on the course’s third hole and was witnessed by Dan Differ, Miles Differ, Kevin Guptil and John Lane.
Blink Bonnie had a second hole-in-one less than a week later when Sorrento’s Francie Johnson made one on the same hole using a driver Friday morning. Johnson’s witnesses were Priscilla Masselink, Louisa Mygatt and Sally Wise.
On Thursday, Ryan Coffin of Mariaville made his first hole-in-one at the Sawmill Woods Golf Course in Clifton. His shot, which came on a pitching wedge, took place on the 112-yard fifth hole.
