Los Alamos Golf Course saw not one but two aces last week.
Brett Kniss and Eddie Sanchez both scored holes-in-one at LAGC, with Kniss hitting his on the fourth hole and Sanchez on the No. 8 hole.
For Kniss, it was the third ace of his playing career.
Course professional Donnie Torres, one of the witnesses of Kniss’ ace, said the ball landed about three feet above the pin but spun back down and in the cup.
Also witnessing the shot were Steve Birdsell, Johnny Montoya and Joe Gallegos.
That ace was recorded Thursday. Kniss hit an 8-iron 159 yards.
Meanwhile, Sanchez scored his hole-in-one Sunday. It was the second hole-in-one he’d recorded in back-to-back weeks.
For his shot, Sanchez hit a pitching wedge from the No. 8 tee. from 115 yards out.
Sanchez said he actually saw the ball go into the hole, the first of seven career aces he’d actually seen.
The ace was also witnessed by Barbara Schmitt, Brian Colby, Cliff Fortgang and Larry Rich.
