Pretty safe bet that Matt Grebeck’s first trip to Homestead Golf Course in Carbondale won’t be his last. Grebeck, from Factoryville, used an 8-iron to score a hole-inone on the 175-yard 18th hole.
He was playing with Matt Redetvky and Zack Davis.
Jody Fitzsimmons used his A-wedge to ace the 110-yard second hole at Canoe Club. Witnesses to Fitzsimmons’ fourth career ace were Carl Pazzaglia, Mike Hopkins and Dan Cassaro.
