Tournament season is here! Are you looking for a unique way to sell more sponsorships, increase attendance and raise more money at your event? If you’ve already added a putting contest or shoot-out, this could be the year to take flight by holding a giant-prize golf ball drop.
A golf ball drop is a really fun way to attract attention, increase community involvement and raise more funds! And it’s easier than you may think.
It all starts with selling numbered golf balls. Donors purchase balls in hopes of winning your grand prize – up to one million dollars, paid for by Hole In One International’s sister company, Odds On Promotions.
A few days prior to your event, Odds On Promotions will preselect a few winning ball numbers. On the day of your event, you’ll drop all of the balls you’ve sold onto a designated target from a helicopter, hot air balloon, crane or bucket truck. If one of the balls landing inside the target area matches one of Odds On’s preselected numbered balls, the owner of that ball will head home a winner, and Odds On will pick up the tab!

Calling all non-profit organizations: raise more dough this season with a helicopter golf ball drop!
Looking to add a little something extra to your annual golf tournament this year? How about a helicopter golf ball drop? That’s right — thanks to Hole In One International’s sister company, Odds On Promotions, this promotion can be insured at your next golf tournament… and for a nominal fee! Plus, a helicopter golf ball drop can help you maximize those fundraising dollars!
The way it works is simple: sell as many sponsorships as possible by having individuals purchase numbered golf balls for a fee — how much you choose to charge them per ball, or per bundle of golf balls, is strictly up to you! Contestants can either make their purchase at a specified location or better yet, online via your organization’s website! Want to reward those who register and pay for their golf balls in advance? Feel free to cut them a deal and discount the price of their golf ball(s) if they make their purchases x days prior to the registration deadline!
Come the day of the event, the helicopter will lift into the air and drop all of the golf balls onto a target area. If the numbers on the balls which come closest to the target match Odds On’s preselected list of numbers, then they’ll be a grand prize winner… of any insured prize amount you choose, up to $1,000,000! Wondering where in the world you’re going to manage to obtain a helicopter from? We encourage you to team up with one of your local radio or TV stations. You’ll get them publicity, and in return, you’ll gain use of their traffic helicopter!
A helicopter golf ball drop is an attention-grabbing promotion which can be held before or after your golf tournament. In fact, it can even be insured as a stand-alone event, if you so choose! Pick up the phone and give Odds On a call today at 888-827-2249 for a free, no-obligation quote on a helicopter golf ball drop promotion. You can also email them with any questions.

Looking to hold a golf promotion that Hole In One International won’t insure? No worries — our sister company, Odds On Promotions, is here to help! Wanting to insure an off-course putting promotion or a golf ball drop? Whatever the case may be, Odds On can help! Let’s take a look at a few golf contests, what they entail and how they can benefit your company/organization:
Golf Ball Drop
Nothing screams ‘excitement’ like watching hundreds of golf balls, tennis balls or even ping-pong balls being dropped from a helicopter! Insuring a helicopter golf ball drop is not only as easy as 1-2-3, but also extremely affordable! Ideal for selling sponsorships and generating fundraising dollars, charge your golf tournament participants a specific dollar amount to buy a uniquely numbered ball (or offer discounted prices if they buy multiple!). Drop them from a helicopter onto a target area — if one of the balls falling closest to the target appears on a list of preselected ball numbers, Odds On will pay for the grand prize! Not sure how to go about obtaining usage of a helicopter? Consider teaming up with your local radio/TV station for publicity and borrowing their traffic helicopter in the process! Or, get creative and use a hot air balloon or cherry-picker.
Off-course Putting Contest
Turn your next convention and/or awards banquet, tradeshow, or company function into a grand prize-winning event with a putting contest! Select one participant at random (we suggest holding a raffle if you’re looking to fundraise; however, you can narrow down your participants in any fashion you’d like) and bring them back during or after your event to take a single 50 ft. or longer putt for the dough! For more fun, have your contestant attempt a 3-putt combination! If the contestant successfully sinks the insured putt(s), Odds On will pay out the specified prize amount! In need of additional advertising materials? Odds On offers custom target templates, which feature the insured prize amount, description of the prize to be won and the sponsor’s name/logo! Need a putting ramp for your event? Odds On has you covered for those too!
A Unique Hole In One Contest…
Surely you’re thinking that a hole-in-one contest can only occur at a golf course: well, guess again! Odds On has insured hole in one promotions at a variety of places. Whether you want to try and score an ace from the top of a building, the balcony of a nearby condo, the top of your retail location or even from a plane or helicopter… again, we’ve got you covered! The more unique the promotion, the more attention it will gain… so if you’re looking to stand out from the crowd, keep Odds On Promotions in mind! We can help you come up with a custom-tailored hole in one promotion that’s sure to knock the socks off of your competition.

Looking to add something to your golf tournament this year? Wanting to raise some much needed money for your cause this summer in the process? You’re in luck! Hole In One International has just released their Top 3 Summer Fundraisers to help you achieve your desired fundraising goals! Let’s take a look:
1. Golf Ball Drop
A golf ball drop can either be used as a standalone event or as an add-on to your golf tournament, either before or after your outing. Here’s how it works:
- Generate funds by selling numbered balls. How much you plan to charge is strictly up to you!
- Once you’ve sold the balls, all of them are then dropped from a helicopter or cherry picker above a target.
- If one of the balls closest to that target is on a pre-selected list of lucky balls, then Hole In One’s sister company, Odds On Promotions, will pick up the tab!
2. Poker Run
Hop on your car, boat or motorcycle this summer and you could potentially cruise your way into some serious dough! Just “buy in” by following these easy steps:
- Design your own course with 5 different stops in which your contestants must travel to.
- Have each contestant stop at each location and select a card.
- At the end of the contest, each contestant enters their assigned contestant number and highest 5-card hand into our touch screen verification unit. If they have the preselected lucky hand, we write a check for the prize!
3. Duck Race
Sell more ducks and raise more bucks with a duck race promotion. If the preselected duck crosses the finish line first, then we’ll pay out the prize! It’s as easy as 1-2-3:
- Choose an amazing prize (cash, vehicles, houses or anything up to $1,000,000 in value) and sell your ducks.
- Before your event, we’ll select a group of Lucky Ducks.
- If one of those ducks crosses the finish line first, the owner will win your amazing prize, and Odds On will pay for it.

Pago-Pago, American Samoa – Looking to raise more money at your golf event this season? Maybe it’s time to add a golf ball drop to your event! The people of American Samoa are another step closer to the dream of having their first community swimming pool thanks to the Rotary Club’s 6th Annual Golf Tournament & $50,000 Golf Ball Drop.
Contestants in the golf ball drop purchase one of 1000 numbered golf balls which are then dropped from a bucket truck onto a target “hole”. If any of the five numbered balls falling closest to the hole match a preselected lucky golf ball number, the “owner” wins $50,000, paid for by Hole In One International’s sister company, Odds On Promotions.
While there wasn’t a $50,000 grand prize winner, three lucky ball-buyers still received some fantastic prizes. The first-place winner, Spencer Sword, took home a round-trip ticket to Honolulu, courtesy of Hawaiian Airlines. The second-place winner, Jackie Young, picked up $500 and the third-place winner was Jeff Shively who won $250. This year’s event helped the Rotarians to surpass their $100,000 fundraising goal getting them that much closer to a community pool.
