It appears to be 267', on Oshtemo Twp Park (Kalamazoo, MI)'s #13 short (which was #4 at the time, only a 9-holer in 1999).

A hard line-drive RHFH with a Banshee that stuck into the side of the basket, like the knife into the wall that Sister Mary Elephant asked the "young maaaaaaaan" to give her from the Cheech and Chong sketch. I was young enough back then to sprint like a mad man after it before it might've fallen out. It was stuck hard, so no problems there. Lots of laughing from the people around me.

I also hit George Wilson Park's #5 with a thumber (also a Banshee, circa 1998?), and I see it's listed as 322'. There's no way it's that long; you don't even have to throw the overhand shot hard. It's up and down a hill. Does that information erroneously match the old, old, old #5 that used to play around the wooden building 180 degrees behind current #5's tee? I once lodged a Roc from 1989 in the shingles of that building...

Centrul Scrutinizer,

I had one of those with a Vector on a 250' ace run at my home course. Lots of haters but I count it, it went in in one shot and IMO those are even more rare than aces.

426 downhill with a GL Flow that my wife got me for Christmas a few years back. I called her immediately to thank her for being the best wife ever for feeding my addiction.

I don't think that counts bro. Doesn't it have to be in the basket or hanging from the chains?

Hole #5 at Middle Creek DGC, 282 ft. downhill. Hit two aces that day, but this is my longest to date; 59th hole out of 144 played in the Great 8 doubles tourney in the Raleigh-Durham area of North Carolina on July 13, 2013.

Over 250 but under 300' never did get the distance confirmed, at the BC provincials in Langley, I was just happy to get it close in the wind with ESP Force after blowing the hole first time around. The only other ace didn't pay into the pot, $200 bucks and Matt H finally parted with his ESP LE comet for $30 in change.
