Yes, it's happened at least several times.
Since almost nobody - even with today's supercharged equipment - can hit a 500-yard drive, the best place to look for par-5 aces are on those par-5 holes that are severe doglegs, or are even a bit horseshoe-shaped. On such holes, an intrepid long-hitter can attempt to cut a corner or clear trees or other hazards in order to go straight at the green, rather than playing around the dogleg in a normal fashion.
Holes-in-one on two such par-5s are known to have happened. One was even recorded with a 3-iron! That one was made by Shaun Lynch, playing at Teign Valley Golf Club in Christow, England, in 1995, on the 496-yard No. 17. According to a 2004 article in Golf World magazine, Lynch aimed straight toward the green on a horseshoe par-5, clearing a 20-foot-high hedge, then hitting a downslope on the other side.
The downslope carried his ball to the green and into the cup.
The first-known ace of this nature occurred in 1962, according to the Golf World article. "Larry Bruce took his drive over a stand of scrawny pines on the 480-yard dogleg right par-5 fifth hole at Hope Country Club" in Arkansas, and found the cup.
But there's also one hole-in-one known to have occurred on a straightaway par-5. This monster drive was achieved at altitude on the No. 9 hole at Green Valley Ranch Golf Club in Denver in 2002. The shot was 517 yards in length, and the golfer who got the ace was Mike Crean. This ace is believed to be the longest ever recorded. According to Matt Dribnak, Director of Sales and Marketing at the GVRGC, the hole-in-one was not witnessed, so according to the USGA this cannot be recognized as a hole-in-one.
What is a hole-in-one on a par-5 called? "Condor" is sometimes recognized as the "proper" term, but triple-eagle and double-albatross are also correct.
On the first tee box, honors used to be determined by flipping a tee and seeing where it pointed after landing to select golfing order. This would have to be done at least 3 times in a foursome. Today, there's a new device called the Starter Coin that golfers flip once to decide who tees off 1st, 2nd, 3rd and last all in one flip.
Yes, many times.
4 under par is known as a "Condor".
That would be a condor.
No, and I'm going to say no one ever will.
Yes, all the time. Read: http://everythinggolf.blogs.heraldtribune.com/11108/death-by-golf-ball-not-all-that-uncommon/

Never going to be a Leaf. Golf Leafs Golf!
There are famous pictures of Alan Shepard hitting a golf ball on the moon. Since the moon is a low gravity atmosphere, the ball was able to travel for miles.
It is called a condor, 4 under par on one hole, very rare if not impossible.
He hits some of the most unbelievable golf shots anyone has ever seen, and some people believe he is the greatest golfer that has ever walked the earth.
A condor is 4 under par on a given hole, so a double condor would most likely be 5 under par on a given hole. The only way this could be achieved is a hole in one on a par 6, which would only require a 700 yard or so drive.
Four under on a given hole is called a condor, a hole in one on a par 5. It is extremely rare.
18, I guess.
