Two Okemo employees score holes-in-one on same day

Two Okemo Mountain Resort employees — both from Ludlow — made holes-in-one at the Okemo Valley Golf Club on the very same day.

On Thursday, Aug. 27, Peter Cornish aced the 4th hole from the white tee, using his 5-iron, for a 156-yard hole-in-one. Donald Tirburzi witnessed the amazing feat.

Terry Thayne made a hole-in-one on the 17th hole. His 98-yard ace was made from the gold tee with a pitching wedge and was witnessed by Paul Laporte and Jim Donnelly.

Both golfers will have their names engraved on a plaque that hangs inside the Okemo Valley Golf Club clubhouse to honor those who have had the exhilarating experience of making a hole-in-one at OVGC.

Okemo Valley Golf Club is Vermont’s first heathland-style golf course and was designed according to the traditions of the game. The championship 18-hole golf course features a clubhouse, indoor practice facility, 18-acre outdoor training center, pro shop and fleet of electric carts. The layout is a par 70 that measures 6,400 yards in length and features bent grass greens, tees and fairways with multiple tee areas on each hole.
