What was Your First Ace?

I almost nailed my first Ace the other day the first time playing at Spring Valley DGC in Spring, Texas. Hole #9 is about 200ft with a quick Blind dogleg right. I annyed my White Wolf off the tee, and it followed the corner beautifully. Just tried to get it around dogleg, but ended up landing directly in front of pin. A few feet further and it was there.

I guess I am curious where everyone nailed their first ace, and how they did it. Every disc golfer loves to talk about their successes, so tell us about them

Mine was at Baker Farm on hole #8. I threw my DX shark and it flew like a bullet.. flat, straight and right into the basket. Length on the hole is 197ft. and it's pretty much a straight shot to the basket. I had gotten close to acing that hole several times in the past but the stars must have been aligned that one day

Here's the hole:

Hole # 11 at Lafluer's Bluff in Jackson, MS. Around 200 feet. The is a natural path with the basket on the side of a hill up to the right. I threw a cheetah with a nice right turn on it(backhand) and as it died it faded just a bit left into the basket. A couple of years later I aced the same hole again with an almost identical shot, except with a Dragon the second time.

Still looking for my first ace.

Playing four months now and I haven't had one yet. My best run was the 230' QVCC Valley Classic #18 at Texas States this past weekend. My hyzering 180 Star Shark missed by what had to be about a foot. Ended up down in the ditch and I punked out on the ~12' steep uphill birdie putt too Sad, sad hole for me.

Oh yeah, Ace Pot for the tourney was $950. Two guys split it. One hit QVCC Links #4, don't remember the other one.

1st ace

I've only hit one, about 2 months ago on a 260 ft hole 7b at Wickham Park in Melbourne FL. Hit it while playing with 4 other course regulars, with a 171 gram champion Beast. It was about the best feeling in the world :-)

My first was on hole 7 at Iroquois Park in Louisville in 1983. I think it was about 180. A downhill shot and you had to hyzer round a clump of trees. Ching!

My only other ace was on hole 4 at Iroquois which was shorter back then as I recall. Just a straight shot down a tunnel of trees - maybe 160.

I haven't had a basket ace since but I went from 1984 to 2005 without playing. I have had some object course aces since then but I don't count them.

played today and almost had 2 Aces at Archusa Water Park. On #1 and #5 I hit the basket off the skip but neither went in. Both times the disc was still rising and hit the bottom of the basket.

It took me eight years of playing before I hit my first ace last August. I didn't even know it went in until after helping others search for their disc and catch up to my drive. I couldn't find my disc at first as I never thought to check the basket.

I hit my first last weekend at Peaks View Park in Lynchburg, VA. It was hole #3, which is pretty much a straight shot 180 feet hole. I used a DX Eagle. I've come close to aceing the hole before, but this time I finally got it.

It was the greatest feeling ever. I've been playing a little over two years!

My first ace was also with a dx eagle. It was hole 6 at Industrial Park in Searcy, AR, a wide open 240 footer. It happened in my third week of playing and I was all alone. I sat at the tee box for like 10 minutes not knowing whether to celebrate or start crying that I was the only person on the course. So the question is, if you hit an ace in a field and nobody is there to see it, did it really happen?
