Hole In One Insurance News from Hole In One International


Hole In One International has Another Putting Contest Winner

Congratulations to Matt Norby!

Grand Forks, N.D. – This June during Edgewood Management Group’s 2nd Annual Longest Day Golf Tournament, Matt Norby of Grand Forks won an 8-day/7-night Hawaiian vacation, valued at $3,000, courtesy of Edgewood Management Group, and paid for by Hole In One International.

Norby won the prize after he holed an impressive 50-foot putt during a fundraising putting contest which took place on 9th hole at the Kings Walk Golf Course, immediately following the tournament.

To participate in the fuIM-Putting-NorbyMatt-H358121ndraiser, golfers made a donation and took a qualifying shot on the practice green. Those who successfully made the initial 25-foot qualifying putt took their best shot at a 50-foot putt. After getting closest to the hole in those semi-finals, Norby got the chance to take another 50-footer on the 9th hole, this time nailing the shot, winning the Hawaii vacation for two.

But winning the tropical trip wasn’t the only surprise of the day. Turns out Norby had bet that if made the putt, he’d take a little swim.  Check out the prize winning putt – and Norby’s celebration dip.

According to Hollie Britten, Corporate Sales and Marketing Manager with Edgewood Management Group, the morning-to-evening “Longest Day” event, recognizes those who live with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers.

“This event is about educational outreach as well as raising money for the Alzheimer’s Association. We hold an awareness walk – a quick 1 mile, followed by a community breakfast. The golf tournament begins mid-morning with the putting contest qualifying taking place all day on the putting green. Then, after the tournament we had the putting contest finals, followed by awards and a live band on the deck at the golf course,” explained Britten.

“Working with Hole In One International was very easy – very smooth. But of course the best part was getting to walk across the street to Matt’s office and hand him that vacation voucher. That was fantastic,” continued Britten.

We thought that was pretty fantastic too! Looking for an affordable way to support a great cause in your community? Check out more ideas or give Hole In One International a call today at 800-827-2249.

Edgewood Management Group owns and/or operates 53 independent living, assisted living and memory care communities in seven states. The organization raised an impressive $27,000 during their Longest Day events with all proceeds going to the Alzheimer’s Association.

M-HIO-$50K-H349338-McGrawJason-AutoNon-Profit (4)Twenty year old Jason McGraw of Reno is driving around campus in a $50,000 Ford truck, courtesy of Jones West Ford and paid for by Hole In One International.

McGraw won the amazing set of wheels after he aced the 173-yard, Hole 11 at the Washoe County Golf Course with a 6 iron, during the 4th Annual Josh Morros Because I Can Golf Tournament which benefits the Head Injury Association of Northern Nevada and supports Josh Morros in his efforts to speak at schools and community event on determination, resilience, understanding, and the care and prevention of traumatic brain injury. This was McGraw’s first hole in one.

According to Tournament Director Teresa Morros, this year the event raised $6000 and they will be using the publicity they received from having a big winner to attract additional sponsors as well as participants for their next event.

“It’s funny. No one believed that there was a winner. Everyone was in shock. When I told Josh he  didn’t believe me. Even Jason’s mom thought he was kidding when he called to tell her. Working with Hole In One International was amazing. They made the entire process very easy,” noted Morros.

Again, congrats to Jason McGraw on his amazing accomplishment!  For more information on hole in one insurance or putting contest insurance, give Hole In One International a call today at 800-827-2249 or email us for a free, no-obligation quote!  Happy golfing!

Golf Game Ideas: Choose Your Club – Guaranteed Amusement For Everyone!

Are you a planning an upcoming golf tournament?  Are you looking for golf game ideas for your players?  Then be sure to check out this particular golf game idea from Hole In One International: “Choose Your Club!”  Feel free to hold this game even if you just plan on hitting the links with some buddies this weekend.  Remember: it’s all about the ‘fun’ factor!

Here’s how it works: During the tournament, each end every player has to choose a club for the current shot that’s at play.  The players must choose from one of many different clubs.  Write the names of all of the clubs and stick them into a hat, bowl, or otherwise for a raffle.  Players each draw a specific ‘club’ which they must use to make their shot.  Sit back and watch all of the laughs when a player draws ‘putter’ when they’re a good 100 yards away from the hole.  There are multiple possibilities and it’s guaranteed to be a lot of fun for your players.

Granted, you probably won’t want to utilize this game on a hole where hole in one insurance is being offered (if applicable), nor do you want to make this game an all-day long affair due to time restraints: it’s best to choose a particular time during the outing to have them participate in “Choose Your Club.”  We personally recommend holding the game sometime during the 18th hole — that way your players have already reached home stretch by the time the fun begins… and they’re free to head back to the clubhouse after their round of golf has ended and laugh about the antics of their fellow golfers over a meal and/or drink.

We personally love this golf tournament game idea and hope you will to!  Need more golf game ideas?  Feel free to email us.  And definitely be sure to let us know if you end up utilizing “Choose Your Club” and tell us how it went!  We’d love to share all of the funny stories on Hole In One International’s Facebook page.

Golf Promotions Make Great Fundraisers – Take It From This Nonprofit

golf promotionsLooking for a great fundraising idea that will draw a crowd?  How about insuring a few golf promotions?  That’s what this nonprofit medical center in the state of Kansas did, by insuring a few unqiue golf shootout contests, with the assistance of not only Hole In One International, but our sister company, Odds On Promotions.

Here are how the golf promotions worked: Come the day of the golf tournament, 75 of the players, invited via exclusive invitation, participated in a golf shootout contest, where if any of them made a hole in one from the specified 155-yard par 3 hole, they would win $50,000… compliments of Hole In One International.

While unfortunately, no one ended up making the prize shot, there was still good news to be had.  That’s because 20 of the those players were invited to come back and participate in a second golf shootout contest — this time, from the par 3 18th hole on the course, which measured 165 yards.  The players were qualified in various ways.  The 16 golfers who were closest to the pin from the prior shootout contest were invited back, 2 players qualified via auction, 1 via putting contest, and 1 via a chipping contest.

If one of the twenty golfers managed to ace the 18th hole, they would have landed $1,000,000 for themselves and $1,000,000 for the medical center, which mainly focuses on cancer research and treatment.  That’s a cumulative $2,000,000 prize… paid for by Odds On Promotions!

While no golfers managed to make a hole-in-one, money was still raised for the medical center and fun was had by all.  Make your next golf tournament or golf outing a huge success by advertising the chance to win big, compliments of Hole In One and Odds On Promotions!  Want every single player in your tournament to be given a chance to ace a hole and win the big bucks?  Then check out our hole in one insurance!  Give us a call today at 800-827-2249 for a free, no-obligation quote on any golf promotions of your choice… or email us for more information or with any questions you may have!  We’d love to help make your next big fundraising event a success.
