Because Life is Better at the Lake

Long Cove, Buxton Marina host hole-in-one competition


David Webb is a veteran journalist who has written for the mainstream and alternative media for three decades. He is now a freelancer who lives in the Cedar Creek Lake area.

Long Cove hosted residents and Cedar Creek Lake community  members for a day of family fun and prizes at one of Texas’ most scenic retreats on April 15, 2017.

Families and friends enjoyed an Easter egg hunt, a live five-piece band, carnival style games, face painting and a petting zoo at the community’s annual Spring Fling before heading to The Proving Grounds, Long Cove’s par-3 practice range, for the inaugural hole-in-one competition.

The event was sponsored by Buxton Marine and emceed by former WFAA sportscaster George Riba. Guests enjoyed complimentary refreshments and warm treats from The Beignet Bus while golfers ages 10 and under vied for prizes, including a hoverboard and remote controlled boat, in a putting competition. Golfers ages 11 through 15 also tried their luck in a chipping competition for the chance to win a paddle board, drone or Kam Jam game set.

Following the putting and chipping competitions, more than 50 amateur and professional golfers competed for the boat of every lake-goer’s dreams, a Super Air Nautique. Although no competitor was able to win the grand prize by sinking a hole-in-one, a “Close But No Cigar” trophy and YETI cooler were awarded to the golfer who came closest — Bruce Northcutt, a Long Cove homeowner from The Woodlands, Texas.
