Naga Hamamoto of Huntington Beach, Calif., shot a hole-in-one on the 10th hole at Coral Creek last Saturday and became the first player to qualify on a Hawaii course for the Million Dollar Hole-In-One tournament at Las Vegas.
$1,000 ace at Coral Creek
Hamamoto made his ace, earning $1,000 on the spot, after purchasing a Million Dollar Hole-In-One coupon. Coral Creek also will give him two round-trip airline tickets to Korea.
Golfers at the Coral Creek, Mililani, Hawaii Prince, Ewa Villages and West Loch courses may buy coupons from Million Dollar Hole-In-One officials at designated par-3 holes for as little as $5. If they then ace the hole, they're up $1,000 and in the field for the Las Vegas jackpot. For more information, call 529-0000.
