Las Vegas’ top-rated gem on the Strip, Bali Hai Golf Club, served as host for the ninth annual golf tournament to benefit the Injured Police Officers Fund. The event featured plenty of excitement – including a hole in one by John Moran, Jr., whose father served as Clark County Sheriff for over a decade. The IPOF, founded by the late Moran, Sr. during his three term tenure as sheriff, supports the families of officers injured or killed in the line of duty.

A Walters Golf-owned property, Bali Hai Golf Club frequently plays host for the outings of admired organizations – and is known for attracting high-profile players, too. “The Moran family has been a fixture in the Las Vegas area for decades,” said Mike Wachtman, General Manager of Bali Hai Golf Club. “It was an honor to welcome a tournament with a group of supporters that ensure these courageous officers and their families receive the assistance they rightfully deserve – and John Moran, Jr.’s hole in one made the event inspired by his late parents’ charitable work even more special.”

John Moran Jr., an esteemed attorney who has been involved in various high-profile cases in the Las Vegas area, used an 8-iron to sink a hole in one on the 145 yard 11th hole. The December, 5 2014 ace was carded in the company of Nevada Senator Randolph Townsend, Bill Weinberger – the son of late casino gaming mogul and former president of Caesars Palace, William “Billy” Weinberger – and "Las Vegas Sun" Publisher and President Brian Greenspun. The hole in one is the second in Moran’s golfing career.
