On Saturday, June 1, Douglas Carey of Darien made his first-ever hole-in-one at Okemo Valley Golf Club in Ludlow, VT.

Carey aced the 17th hole from the white tee, using his No. 5 hybrid, for a 151-yard hole-in-one. Mickey Herbst and Atsuko Yoshida witnessed the feat.

Carey's name will be engraved on a hole-in-one plaque that hangs inside the Okemo Valley Golf Club clubhouse to honor the fortunate few who have had the exhilarating experience of making a hole-in-one at OVGC. Carey's shot was the second hole-in-one made at OVGC this year.
