On Thursday, Sept. 2, Seneca Hickory Stick Golf Course saw its very first hole-in-one.
Clay Reno, 68, of West Seneca approached the 117-yard, par-3, second hole with a 7-iron in his hand. His shot landed about 8 feet short of the pin and bounced a couple of times before falling.
Reno's shot was not only the first ever for Seneca Hickory Stick, but the first of his life as well. Reno was using a Seneca Hickory Stick-logoed ball at the time.
Opened for public play in July, the 18-hole, 7,026-yard championship course was designed by world-renowned course architect Robert Trent Jones II. It is owned by Seneca Gaming Corporation and operated by KemperSports.
