Hole in One Winner

Swinging Success: Remarkable Hole in One at Tarrytown Police PBA Golf Outing


On a radiant day, the Knollwood Country Club hosted the Tarrytown Police PBA Golf Outing, drawing golf enthusiasts from the local community. Among them was Gary Raniolo, a seasoned player, whose love for golf had taken root at the tender age of 6. With an annual average of 15-20 rounds, Gary was no stranger to the greens.

As fate would have it, Gary found himself at hole number 16, a notorious par 3 known for its tricky layout. Being the first to tee off for his team, Gary took the shot without much thought. Unbeknownst to him, this seemingly routine swing turned out to be a game-changer when the ball went up in the air, traveled 181 yards, and went right into the cup. For Gary this wasn’t his first dance of glory, as it marked his second hole in one!

Little did Gary realize that this shot and this hole in one would change the course of his day. The golf outing, generously sponsored by Tarrytown Honda, had an unexpected twist – a brand new Honda Accord awaited the golfer who could achieve a hole in one on hole number 16! Gary's exceptional shot not only secured his bragging rights but also granted him the keys to a sleek new car.

For Gary, this triumph held a special significance beyond the golf course. With deep roots in the local community and unwavering support for the Tarrytown Police Department, the unexpected win became a celebration of shared moments and hometown pride.
