June Desloges got into the golf game late in life, but she is proving to be a quick study.

Desloges, an 88-year-old mother of seven, did not pick up the game until she was in her late 70s.

It took barely a decade of golf play for her to score her first hole-in-one on the golf course. Once she got the hang of the trick, she needed just 10 days to repeat the feat — even if she no longer has her original knees.

Desloges, a member at Arrowsmith Golf Club in Qualicum Beach, aced the par-3 sixth hole on May 7. Last week, she dropped her tee shot on the fourth hole.

“She is catching up on lost time for a sport that she never thought she would be able to do, after raising seven children,” said her daughter, Laurie Desloges.

“Even when she had both her knees replaced it has not stopped her, nor slowed her down. A good thing too, because she loves golfing so much and it is paying off.”
