First I need to GET a hole-in-one!

On my first one, I happened to have a bottle of crown and a few cigars in the bag. My buddy and I lit a cigar and took shots as we walked to the green.    on my second one, it was me and my unc

First hole in one this year! Gladly treated my playing partners to lunch and a few beers. Got called cheap because they expected an open tab for the rest of the day. Thankfully I had to pick up my lit

Depends on the situation. My first was while a twosome with my adult son. Since I paid for everything golf-related he owned including the round I didn’t do anything.

The others came in league play where we have HIO insurance for the drinks and I got $100.

I always thought it was an odd custom for the person getting the HIO to be the one treating others. I think it should be reversed.

If you get one at my club, you let the pro shop know. Then anyone that shows up inside the bar for the rest of the day gets a drink on the house. On next month's bill, each member is charged $3 so we all share in the expense.

If the balance from your HiO fund isn't used up by people getting their free drink by the end of that day, you get the rest in pro shop credit. I heard a story that one guy got a HiO very late in the day, went in and got drinks for his group. But hardly anyone else was in the bar that evening. He ended up with over $600 in pro shop credit.

I got one earlier this year. The club opened a bar tab for $150 and everyone including me got 1free drink. One of the guys I was playing with wanted to stay for another drink and since it was my turn to buy, I had to buy a round. Even the bartender couldn't believe I was paying for drinks. Also the bar tab was only open while I was there and since it was a quiet Sunday, it only cost the club $90.

Act cool, like it happens all the time. Then pass out.

At my home club, we have insurance, so everyone in the bar (or on the deck in covid times) gets a drink. Last one I had I was playing an interclub match at a club near my house, where tradition has it that the home team buys all drinks normally. But those guys drink at a neighboring tavern (cuz they're cheap), so I drive home, and my wife drove me back to the local tavern. We bought drinks (she did, actually) for about the first hour. Then I went home and passed out.

Took a while to believe what i saw... posed for a photo (see avatar)... then bought the group a drink when the carts came around and another once the round was finished.

Note: I thought I might be exempt from buying drinks and tried avoid doing more than that (because it was a short Par 4)

at a minimum buy drinks for your group - if there's people in the clubhouse/19th hole; i'd say a round but no more.

I have never had one. One of my regular playing partners has had two. He is a really cheap person. We eat after our rounds. I have said dinner is on you. He laughs. Then I say ok how about a beer? He replies that I should be buying him dinner or a drink..

Being cheap or not I do agree with him. Why should the person that gets a hole in one buy others a drink? Shouldn't everyone or at least the players in your group be treating you?

You must buy the drinks to keep that luck forever. Cheap skates will be cursed. I formulated this opinion while receiving said drinks, also realizing the unlikely scenario I would be the purchaser

First hole-in-one, I bought drinks for my group. Thank goodness, no one announced my hole-in-one in the nineteenth hole because it was packed!

Second hole-in-one, I had recently joined an upscale country club (350-golfing members) and we were each charged $10 for hole-in-one insurance. That was a blessing because everyone got one free drink the rest of the afternoon and evening! That would have easily been a 4-figure bar tab. That was $10 well spent.

Had 1 hole-in-one and did nothing, and do nothing making birdies and hole-outs, which are rather common.

Not too long ago on a nearby green a guy made a long-putt then proceeded to ran around the green in circles. Best act like you do it all the time... otherwise, person be Duffus or dummass frickinious idiotus, - latin.

As a member of a private club each member usually pays into a Hole-in-one fund through dues. So, when he gets a hole-in-one, the round is covered.

Tradition is very important in this game and you must buy a drink for everyone in the bar. You are fortunate if you have insurance at your club.

But I got extra lucky this year. I made a hole in one while traveling to Colorado during the pandemic. The extra luck was multi-layered. First, the clubhouse was closed including the bar and patio. So I asked and they could deliver us drinks outside as long as we were socially distanced and did not sit. Ok. I was playing with my son and a couple of gentlemen. One had to leave immediately for a long drive home. The other did not drink alchohol but decided to join us on the patio. Three beers and a couple of sodas; less than $30 including tip. Priceless.
