Jayson Wallom, 10, hit a hole-in-one at hole 5 at Tahoe Paradise Golf Course on Saturday.

Tahoe Paradise Golf Course saw another hole-in-one on Saturday.

“It was a beautiful day out here,” said Dan D’Angelo, Director of Golf at Tahoe Paradise. “Perfect golf weather.”

This time, the hole-in-one came from 10-year-old Jayson Wallom from El Dorado Hills. Wallom was using a 9-iron on hole 5.

“We’ve had about seven hole-in-ones this year,” D’Angelo said. “He’s definitely the youngest by far.”

He came close to a hole-in-one on holes 2 and 3 and at hole 5, it finally went in.

“I was playing golf and heard my dad say ‘don’t listen to me anymore,’ so I didn’t,” said Wallom about his dad trying to give him advice. “My dad said he saw it go over the hill and I said ‘no, it went in.’”

This was Wallom’s third time playing a round of golf and, at the end of the day, had a better score than his dad.

Hole 5 is a par-3 and 115 yards.

Tahoe Paradise Golf Course is an 18-hole course located on Highway 50 in South Lake Tahoe.
