Des Moines, Iowa – Joe Schmit has a pretty decent short game. How decent? Schmidt recently sank two incredible qualifying putts beforedraining a 50-footer worth $10,000 during the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of Iowa Foundation’s Dick Sojka Memorial Golf Tournament.
As part of their annual golf outing, the AGC offers a $10,000 putting contest. To participate in the big prize putting contest, golfers buy in for $10 for a chance to enter the “Putting Zone” where the goal is to putt through a path of orange construction cones, placed on the green, without going outside the cones. Whoever makes it through the “Work Zone” getting closest to the pin, gets a chance to make a 50-foot putt for the $10,000 prize, which is split 50/50 between the winner and the AGC Foundation.
According to Ricke Weldon, Field Service Director for the AGC, “I must have made it too easy this year, because we had four qualifiers and had to have a putt-off. Joe won the putt-off. And then he drained the 50-footer. He was three for three. It was just unbelievable.” In the past 19 years, the AGC of Iowa Foundation has raised over $500,000 to provide scholarships to construction education students enrolled in accredited programs thus maintaining a quality workforce.
“Hole In One International is great to work with. I go online, get a quote, and in a few minutes everything is done. A few years ago we had a guy win a $500 Visa Card. Now we had this winner. Hole In One International is responsive to customers and offers very good value,” noted Weldon.

Hershey, Neb. — While it wasn’t Josh Bode’s first hole in one, the ace he made the weekend before the Hershey Fall Festival is liable to be the one he’s most remembered for making. That’s because Bode not only won $10,000,he also made the nightly news.
This August, during the Hershey Lions Club Golf Tournament, Bode aced the 147-yard Hole 5 at the Oregon Trail Golf Course in Sutherland with a 5-iron, winning himself $10,000, courtesy of the Hershey Agency, and paid for by Hole In One International.
According to Vern Ehlers, Manager of The Hershey Agency, who insured the big ticket prize, the tournament takes place each year before the town’s Fall Festival and is one of a few key fundraisers for the Hershey Lions Club which raises about $20,000 annually.
“We’re a small town of 600-800 people, and this is one of our community’s two big golf events, which we’ve been sponsoring for about 10 or so years now. I’ve sort of thought of it as a $195 sign that helps support the community. I never expected anyone to actually have a hole in one,” explained Ehlers who has already ordered a “Happy Gilmore” check to present to Bode.
Elhers continued, “Hole In One International has been awesome to work with. It takes what, maybe 2 – 3 minutes to set up the quote and maybe a total of five to ten minutes and you’re done. It’s just easy. And the claim process was easy too. Everyone was just great to work with.”
As for Bode, he’s just savoring his latest ace, “I’m not actually a good golfer. It was pretty lucky.”
Central Point, Ore. — Have you ever wondered what it would sound like if you nailed a 50-foot putt in front of a crowd of golfers?
Dominic Rosacci knows. He recently sank one during the 2nd Annual Guru Open at Eagle Point Golf Club, winning himself $10,000, courtesy of the tournament sponsor Guru Ink, and paid for by Hole In One International.
The Guru Open featured two $10,000 putting contests. The first was a 3-putt combination contest which was open to all tournament players. The second, which Rosacci won, was a single-putt contest for two lucky finalists whose names were drawn via raffle.
According to Rosacci, who was using a borrowed putter, “I thought, ‘No way this is going to happen.'”
“With all the pressure, I thought I was going to chunk it into the ground and the ball would go about 3 feet. I was pretty shocked at how it played out,” continued Rosacci.
The Guru Open, which is organized by Guru Ink in Medford, raised $10,000 for Kids Unlimited.
