Cape May Court House – Michael Clark, Vice President of Business Development, Sturdy Savings Bank, made a 165-yard hole in one on the third hole at Avalon Golf Club on June 4, 2023, during the 19th Annual Cape May County 4-H Horse Council Golf Tournament. Clark, the first person in the tournament’s history to make a hole in one, was awarded a two-year car lease from hole sponsor Kindle Auto Plaza.
Clark participated in the tournament as part of the Sturdy Savings Bank team along with Mike Lloyd, Allan McClure, and Dan Borawski, Cape Assist. Clark’s hole-in-one was observed by his team and 4-H official witnesses Stephanie Benson and Bonnie Barcas.
Clark, who only golfs occasionally and in community tournaments, said, “ It was surreal! I couldn’t believe I made the shot. It was an awesome, once in a lifetime experience that I will always remember.”
The annual golf tournament is the 4-H Horse Council’s sole fundraiser. All proceeds go directly to 4-H horse project educational costs, youth participation in state and national 4-H leadership events, and renovations to the 4-H horse show arena on the 4-H Fairgrounds.
