College Student Aces $50,000 Truck

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!

Photos & Videos of Your Golf Tournament

NonprofitSwingWant to give your tournament participants and volunteers a way to remember your golf outing for years to come?  Then be sure to take as many photos and videos as possible before, during and even after your event!  Just make sure they’re quality photos/videos.  Wondering how to ensure that they are?  Hole In One International is here to explain how to make the most out of your visual memories and provide you with some great ideas!

Photos
Make sure you pay attention to what you’re taking photos of!  (This may seem elementary, but truth be told we see a lot of photos of scenery and beverage carts.)  While these types of photos are okay to have, it’s still important to focus on your main subject: your tournament participants!  Be sure to gather some great action shots of your players, individual photos and team/foursome photos.  Have your designated photographer (if applicable) drive around in a golf cart and take some unique photos.  Also be sure to take photos of any contest winners you happen to have!  If/when hole in one insurance is included in your outing, be sure to take a photo of any winners you have next to the prize they’ve won, if it happens to be out on the golf course; otherwise, have them stand by the appropriate signage on the hole that shows what they’ve won!

Videos
Be sure to take footage of your golfers throughout the duration of your outing.  Put together a ‘collage’ of sorts to share at your awards ceremony and sell to participants (as well as to use to promote the next event). It will make for plenty of laughs – especially if you manage to catch some footage of any golf follies, such as a player being stuck in an inescapable sand trap or a player’s ball landing straight into a water hazard.  Depending on the amount/quality of video equipment available at your golf tournament, you can also station the video cameras on a specific hole on the course and video each golfer playing that particular hole.  Or, if you have the time, you can even video each golfer’s performance from start to finish and possibly sell a video of their performance to them.  Looking to give your sponsor(s) additional exposure?  Feel free to include any necessary commercials in the video as well.

Need more photo/video suggestions?  Feel free to give Hole In One International a call at 800-827-2249… or email us, and we’ll be sure to help you out and give you more pointers!

Car Dealership and JDRF Insure Hole In One Contest

Maserati LogoLooking to help attract participants to your next fundraising golf tournament?  Read on about this hole-in-one contest which was insured by a car dealership and held at a country club in California as a fundraiser for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.  You’ll undoubtedly see why it was such a bit hit!

On the specified golf tournament date, 118 amateur players showed up to tee off for Juvenile Diabetes.  As an added incentive, a brand new car was out on the course that day.  If any of the 118 golfers were able to ace this particular 165-yard par 3, they’d be driving away in style that day… in a brand new $100,000 Maserati, compliments of Hole In One International!

That’s not all, either: thanks to Hole In One International’s hole in one insurance, complimentary signage adorned the course and players were given a chance to win auxiliary prizes as well, should they have aced any of the other non-target par 3 holes on the courses.  The prizes available were a $500 VISA Gift Card, Kindle Fire and a set of Cleveland® CG16 Black Pearl Irons!

“Offering a large grand prize at your golf tournament is a surefire way of boosting attendence and grasping the players’ interest”, explains Brent Kelly, Southwest Business Development Manager with Hole In One International’s sister company, Odds On Promotions, who happened to work with this specific dealership for this golf promotion.  “When players see that prize being advertised out on the course, they’re more apt to pay/donate to participate in the tournament.”

While, unfortunately, no one was able to ace the hole with the Maserati, a great time was still had by all and the money raised went toward a wonderful cause!
