There is just something about the month of December for Tim Finneran.

Just a few weeks ago, on Dec. 9, he aced the third hole at Beacon Woods Golf Club in Bayonet Point. The fun part for Finneran is that he aced that same hole in December 2006.

League play: Ed Foote, Chris Reid, Ken Yeaton and Betty Allen combined to shoot a new low score of 49 in last week's Belles & Beaus League play at the Quarry Golf Course in Brooksville. That score put the team at 9-under-par on the course, which is Par 58 for 18 holes.

Rick Hilton was closest to the pin on hole No. 8
