Furry Creek Hole in One Winner Carolyn EmoVancouver, BC – Furry Creek Golf and Country Club is proud to be the first location to have $10,000 awarded for a hole-in-one in GPS Industries’ Fire at the Flag™ contest.  Carolyn Emo from Maple Ridge, who has been golfing for over 35 years, came to the 8th tee on August 20, 2006, paid $10 to enter the contest and with one swing made her first ever hole-in-one! 

“I was in total shock. I dropped my club and fell to my knees. I was blown away to get my first hole-in-one. My friends then started screaming that I won $10,000.00! It was too much to take in all at once. I couldn't wait to call my Dad as most of my family plays golf!” exclaimed Carolyn.  She added that she will spend her winnings first by taking her playing partners out for a nice dinner, pay some bills and follow that up with a holiday. 

The Fire at the Flag™ contest adds a unique and obviously rewarding element to the experience at Furry Creek.  ”Those who enter the contest and score a hole-in-one instantly win $10,000 or $25,000 and then qualify for a trip to Orlando Florida in January for a shot at a $1,000,000 jackpot” says Michael Zuccolin, General Manager of Furry Creek. “Even if you don’t make an ace, we still award a prize for hitting the green in regulation. What’s really great is a portion of every entry fee is donated to support Junior Golf in British Columbia. It’s been a great success so far for all parties involved” adds Zuccolin. 

“We wish Carolyn every bit of success when she travels to Florida.  This is already a great story, but it will be even more amazing if she can find one more magical swing and win a $1,000,000” says Zuccolin.
