Email News Alerts

Detroit Lakes head boys' golf coach Bob Gorden has seen plenty of success from his Laker teams after their back-to-back Class 2A state championships.


But last Wednesday, Gorden experienced a rare feat himself, when he sunk his first-ever hole in one on the Lakeview Golf Course's hole 17, a 131-yard shot by using a nine iron.

Joining Gorden late in his round was DL assistant boys' golf coach Vern Schnathorst, who was playing with his son, Tanner, and some of his friends.
