Kurt Alme’s first hole-in-one is definitely one to remember.

With a swing of his 5-iron at Pryor Creek Golf Club, Alme notched his ace on the 174-yard, par-3 No. 12 hole and won a new car Friday while taking part in the annual Young Life fundraiser golf scramble on the John Walker Course.

The 43-year-old Alme, an assistant U.S. attorney in Billings, took home a dark blue Subaru Impreza from Rimrock Auto for his efforts.

“Stunned is probably an understatement,” Alme said of his reaction. “I don’t play well to begin with and I wasn’t having a good round. That made it a little more miraculous than normal.”

Alme said he saw his ball hit the green, but thought it had rolled behind the pin.

However, tournament director Rich Lutton signaled that the ball went into the cup. That meant the new car parked near the tee box belonged to Alme.

His playing partners — Joe Bloyder, Bill Dolan and Jeff Ouradnik — witnessed the perfect shot, along with Lutton and staff member Marya Pennington.

There were 13 four-member teams competing in the scramble, which benefits Young Life, a youth outreach organization. Alme’s foursome was the last group to play the No. 12 hole.
