185 yards from the rough with a 4 hybrid.  Could barely see it drop.  Thought it just lined with the flag, but my buddies swore it dropped.  Got up to the hole and sure enough, there it was in the bottom.   Pretty awesome feeling.  Never had a hole in one (yet), so this is still the best shot I've ever hit.

Had my first this year playing by myself, of course.  One-hopped it in from 55 yds and turned to high-five...nobody.

I was 175 yards away and under a bunch of trees.  Took out a 4 iron to keep the ball low and after some luck going through a hole in the branches of the trees, the ball did a slight hook towards the green and the ball went into the hole!!!!

Mine was from around 155. An 8 iron from the fairway for eagle on the first hole of a college tournament. Unfortunately I played significantly worse the rest of the day.

Just curious to see, what was the longest hole out you've had since you been playing.  I was playing Spring Lake out on Eastern Long Island.  4th hole is a dogleg right par 5.  3 wood off the tee, have 228 left to the hole.
Hahahaha..................great story!   My longest hole-out is the EXACT SAME YARDAGE.........228yds!!!!   My previous home course had a 451yd par4.  It was a very slight dogleg left and I like to hit a draw.(Im a lefty) A medium sized tree stood just inside the left edge of the fairway just before the gentle bend in the corner.  I've played this hole 400 times and I always aimed at this tree and never hit it except for ONCE!!!!  I'd generally fly it no problem... or if I hit a bad drive..I missed to it's left or right.

On this day, I nailed it.  My ball plunked straight down and came to rest exactly between the tree and edge of the fairway.  I hit a 3-iron (I don't even carry one of those these days..LOL).....it landed just short of the green and rolled on and into the cup.  It wasn't until the next day that I returned to pace off the exact yardage.  (this was before lasers)  The divot was in a narrow patch of rough between the tree and fairway so it wasn't hard to find.  Fun stuff!!  That was my first par4 DEUCE.   That total has since climbed to 12, but that first deuce remains as my longest holeout!!!!

My only hole out that I'm proud of and that is worth mentioning is my hole in one. 105 yards when I was 12 (8 years ago).

135 yard ace with a PW. Backed up exactly 18' into the hole. My playing partner had a tape measure in his bag for the verification! He always carries one for KP accuracy. Crazy, I know.

140 yards from the fairway for an eagle was my only other dunk from any more than 50 yards.

Not sure of the exact yardage but it had to be in the 225-235 range.  I was playing the first hole at a course in WNY and snap hooked my drive about 170 off the tee, a low going left bullet.  I ended up quite a ways away, had a decent lie, so I just hit a 3 wood at it hoping to chase something around the green.  The ball was right on line with the pin, landed 30-40 feet short of the green and rolled up into the cup from there.

About 20 years ago I holed out from about 210 out into a north wind with a 1-iron on a course I'd never played before. The next year, the only other time I played that course, I holed out from about 200 with a 3-iron. On the same hole!! What a luck-box.

160 yards with a skulled/thin 7 iron. It was the ugliest and best shot (combined of course) I've ever hit!  Thing never got more than 15 feet in the air.
