We know what you’re probably thinking: “Two aces during the same round of golf? What are the odds on that? There’s no way that could happen!” But according to these stories that come to us from The Northern Advocate, USA Today, Sky Sports and North Fulton, it does… and frequently, at that!
In fact, you’ll notice that not only did these individuals manage to make two hole in ones during the same round, but all of them happened this year… and 2012 has only just begun! Suddenly those 1 in 67 million odds don’t seem so far-fetched, do they?
The aforementioned stories are a prime example of why choosing the right hole in one insurance coverage makes all the difference!
“Why choose Hole In One International versus the other hole in one insurance coverage companies out there?” We’re glad you asked! When you choose to insure your event with Hole In One International, for as little as $150, each and every player at your event has a chance to win thousands of dollars in cash and prizes … But, unlike many other hole in one coverage companies, Hole In One International pays for multiple hole in ones. That’s right: that minimum $150 premium doesn’t cover just the first hole in one that’s made — it covers each and every one made by any/all of your tournament players. Plus, you have the added peace of mind of working with a hole in one insurance coverage company that is underwritten by an A-rated insurance company (Praetorian).
It doesn’t get any better than that!

You’ve already gotten your golf tournament hole in one quote from us, so what’s next? Here’s the 3 key requirements you need to meet in order for your hole in one contest coverage to be valid.
First, you’ll need to make payment prior to the date of your event! Hole In One International accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express or check. Checks mailed through the U.S. Post Office need to be postmarked at least one day prior to your event; we will not accept checks that are postmarked the day of your tournament or later.
Next, you must provide a witness (or witnesses, depending on your prize), over the age of 21 years of age, who is not participating in the tournament. You will need to adjust the number and kind of witnesses, depending on the value of the prize you’re insuring for, as we covered a few weeks back in this blog post on witness requirements.
Finally, the yardage must be measured from the actual hitting area on the tee box to the hole cut in on the green and cannot be lower than the yardage you put on your hole in one application. (Remember: we only accept holes with a minimum yardage of 135!)
Have questions? We’re here to help! Call us at 800-827-2249 or shoot us an email.
“Many clients don’t realize that you’re not only able to obtain a hole in one quote through our website, but pay for it and even order your free signage as well”, says Kristen Hansen, Social Media Marketing Assistant with Hole In One International. “Going this route avoids the unnecessary hassle of having to manually fill out paperwork that we would normally require if you didn’t purchase the insurance online. By using Hole In One International’s online quoting system, you’re killing 3 birds with one stone.”
It really is that easy. Don’t believe us? Watch this 5-minute video tutorial and see for yourself!
The Hole In One Contest
A hole in one contest is by far the most popular charity golf tournament contest. Held on a par three, a hole in one contest rewards anyone making a hole-in-one with a prize. Hole in one prizes can be anything from big screen televisions or sets of clubs to new automobiles or a substantial cash prizes.
While some charity golf tournament organizers have local businesses donate prizes, if you want your event to stand out, insuring a spectacular, attention-grabbing prize with a hole in one insurance company, such as Hole In One International, has multiple benefits. Not only will the big prize – such as the chance to win $10,000, $100,000 or even $1,000,000, attract attention, you can raise additional money by selling a hole-in-one sponsorship package.
Hole In One International is happy to help you select the right hole-in-one package to suit your sponsor as well as your budget.
Normal, Ill. – Meet Randy Mahring of Peoria, Ill. (Yeah, he’s the guy holding the golf ball). Randy won $10,000, paid for by Hole In One International, after he aced the 200-yard Hole 9 at the El Paso Golf Club during the Bill Wolf Scholarship Golf Outing.
According to Mike McGrew with the Van Gundy Insurance Agency who worked with Hole In One International to insure the hole in one contest, “Some great charities have became the recipients of Randy’s good fortune that day… he donated $2,000 to the Bill Wolf Scholarship, $1,000 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, and $1,000 to the St. Jude Children’s Hospital.”
The Bill Wolf Scholarship Fund benefits students of the El Paso-Gridley High School. The fund awards two $1,000 scholarships (1 male and 1 female recipient) each year. This year’s 92-person event raised $6,600 for a total of over $20,000 in four years.
