Review Magazine writer Thomas Baird sunk his first ever Hole-in-One at Treetops Resort in Gaylord, Michigan on Monday May 16, 2011.   Playing on the Rick Smith Signature Course going up to the 17th Hole Baird was tied with his playing partner Dennis Wirley.    The par 3 181 yard hole was elevated about 75 feet above the green.

Playing at the beautiful Treetops Resort in Gaylord which has five courses for the public to use.    They have 3 regulations size courses that range from the Championship style to a more kinder course.    Having been playing golf for a little over 35 years and only coming close to a Hole-in-One once before it was enjoyable to score the first one on a truly legitimate type course.  

Witness Dennis Wirley was the first to congratulate Baird on his Hole-in-One who lost the match to Baird because of the Hole-in-One.   Baird ended up with an 89 for the 18 holes of golf on the day.   The entire staff at Treetops congratulated Baird after learning of the Hole-in-One.   Baird used a 3 Hybrid for the ace and was playing with Intech golf balls for the magical shot.
