Happy Hollow Country Club

Course record

John Norton of Omaha shot 7-under 65 in 1986. Norton also holds the course record from the white tees. He shot 8-under 64 in 1986. Susan Marchese is the women's record holder with a 5-under 67 in 1990.

Happy Hollow's presumed course records are 25 years old, head professional Mike Antonio said, and they came in consecutive rounds by then-teaching professional John Norton. “He and Father Tom O'Brien played 18 holes on a fall evening from the white tees, with John shooting a 63,” Antonio said. “The next morning they got together and played again, this time from the blue tees, and John proceeded to shoot 64. “At that time par was 72, and we only had the white tees and the championship blue tees. Both of those were records at the time, and even though the course has been through a few renovations, those are still the low scores on this course as far as I have been able to research.” Norton now is the PGA professional and general manager at the Pete Dye River Course of Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Va. O'Brien died in 2005.
