Rich Benson’s hole-in-one on No. 15 highlighted the Turkey Creek senior scramble golf play on Thursday.

Benson used an 8-iron to accomplish the feat. Witnesses were Tony Fiedler, George Hurlburt and Marty Zink.

Great weather drew a field of 38. Taking first with a 57 was the team of Willie Johnson, Tami Johnson Holthus, Sam Ulsaker, Marty Redstone and Lane Bomberger. Second was the team of Dick Pfalzgraf, Gary Holloway, Don James and Tom Billings with a 58.

A scorecard playoff determined the First Flight winner after two teams shot 63. The winning team included Larry Fitzmorris, Dave Tyrell, Dan Hervey and Ernie DiNella. The other team was John Austin, Alan Kulbeth, Danny Glidewell and Al Groke.

Provided the weather holds, tee time next Thursday is 1 p.m. Golfers should sign in starting at 12:30.
