Golfers ace the start of season

Tribune staff report

Golf courses in the area are in full swing and that means the aces are already dropping.

Leading a parade of early season aces is Stephen Weiss. Weiss, the city’s parks superintendent, aced the 140-yard par-3 hole at Bijou Municipal Course with an 8-iron.

Bijou’s ninth hole, a 145-yard test, was aced by South Lake Tahoe’s Joey Rodriques with an 8-iron on his birthday.

Also, Carl Woodward scored a hole-in-one on the 182-yard par-3 fourth hole Sunday at Tahoe Paradise Golf Course. The Stateline man used a 5-iron.

Tahoe Paradise Head Pro Dave Gilpin recorded the final ace last season by holing out on the 95-yard third hole with a sand wedge.

Tahoe Paradise opened the other half of its 18-hole layout on Saturday. Green fees are $36 to walk and $52 to ride and TPGC is now open.
