Searsport Pines Golf Course is open for business and Roger Moreau, for one, is glad it is.

That is because Moreau, a member of the club, earned a hole-in-one on Sunday, April 29 to start his season off in the perfect way.

Moreau aced the 135-yard, par-3 ninth hole and his hole-in-one was witnessed by Greg Ireland, also a club member.

Moreau used a Callaway 8-iron and Maxfli ball to record his ace.

It was the second career hole-in-one for Moreau at Searsport Pines. His prior ace came in 2007 — also on the ninth hole.

The course opened for the season on Sunday, April 22.

Susan Prisco said the course and driving range are open to the public. New this year is a 10-play pass for $150 (bonus pass of 11 plays is available through May 15 for purchase). Also the junior membership rate, for those ages 12-18, has been reduced to $140 for the entire season.
