The club's owner, Tim Paasch, snapped a photo of a ripped flag and a burn pattern branching out from the hole.

He posted the photo to the club's Facebook site saying, "We at Eagle Creek Golf Club would like to congratulate God on his almighty hole-in-one! Not sure what tees he played or what the distance was or what club he used, but what a great shot!"

Paasch said he's had trees hit by lightning, but he's never seen something like this, WTKR reported.
