Jim Redden gets his fifth hole-in-one!

Bob Greene, Publicity

We are pleased to report that MOGA has another Ace golfer, Mr. Jim Redden. On Thursday, January 21, Jim scored a hole-in-one on No. 7 of the Palms course. It just happens to be his fifth hole-in-one since 2003 and not all at Oakwood. His first was Papago Golf Course in Phoenix, second was No. 4 of the Palms, third was No. 2 of the Lakes, number four was up in the mountains at Pinetop Lakes in 2014 and then number five on No. 7 Palms. He said he was “halfway to having all the par threes at Oakwood.” Congratulations Jim!
