Golfer sinks $10,000 hole-in-one
One lucky golfer from the Eaton Rapids Medical Center (ERMC) Foundation Golf Outing is $10,000 richer after winning the hole-in-one contest. Ackley-Peters-Haubert (APH) Insurance Service, Inc. presented the prize money to winner Kurt Kramarenko this week. APH Insurance is a dedicated supporter of the Foundation and has sponsored the outing hole-in-one prize since 2004.
The hole-in-one was shot from 165 yards on #6 White at Eldorado Golf Course in Mason, Michigan on August 16, 2013. Kramarenko, who has participated in the outing for years, is donating a generous portion of the proceeds back to the Foundation.
Mike Bell, Eldorado General Manager and Golf Professional, estimated that it has been 15 years since someone last won a hole-in-one contest at the course. He presented Kramarenko with the flag from the hole. Kramarenko also took home a trophy for winning closest to the pin.
The ERMC Foundation uses the proceeds from the outing to support technology, equipment and building improvements at the Medical Center.
