McNairn scores 7th ace


Not once, not twice, but seven times. That’s the number of holes-in-one, that Morrisburg golfer, Brian McNairn has achieved.

His latest was the par three fifth hole at the Morrisburg Golf Course on Saturday, May 19.

The hole was playing to 145 yards, and McNairn was golfing with buddies Mike Laurin, Lee Beaupre and Dave Myers.

He used a seven iron.

We knew it was going in from the time it landed said Laurin. “It hit on the front of the green, ran straight up the hill and dropped into the cup.”

Although McNairn has been playing golf for some 40 plus years, it wasn’t until 2000 that he recorded his first ace.

That was at the Upper Canada Golf Course on the tough par three 13th. It was full steam ahead after that.

He has now aced the par three fifth and 14th holes on the Morrisburg course twice and the par three second and eighth holes once each.

An A flight player, McNairn says it is “fun to see a shot go in like that. If only the game was that easy all of the time.”
