Golf Contests at the Toshiba Classic: Over $1,000,000 Insured!

golf contests at toshiba classicWe’re happy to announce that Hole In One International, as well as our sister company, Odds On Promotions, both teamed up to help insure a couple of fabulous golf contests at the Toshiba Classic this year! One on March 12, 2013 and the other which will occur on March 17, 2013.

You may remember last year, when our sister company insured the Shot From the Top during the Toshiba Classic, which was insured for $10,000. This time, they’ve upped the ante quite a bit… and insured two separate golf contests which were worth over $1,000,000 in cash and prizes, compliments of Hole In One International and Odds On Promotions.

The first golf contest was a Ball in the Circle promotion, which occurred on March 12, 2013.  The contest consisted of five teams. Each team contained one tour professional, one celebrity, and one media member. Each of them teed off from the 10th hole at the renown Newport Beach Country Club. If the golf ball came to a complete rest within the circle on the green, that player would have been awarded $50,000… compliments of Odds On Promotions! That’s five times the prize value of last year’s contest! And it gets even better…

A Million Dollar Shootout will also be held on March 17th, where two amateur golfers and one tour professional will have a chance to take a shot from the 185-yard hole #17 at Newport Beach Country Club for a chance to win $1,000,000, compliments of Hole In One International, should they end up acing the hole and making a hole in one! Needless to say, we can’t wait to see how that golf contest ends up playing out and we hope to be privileged enough to insure a golf contest at next year’s Toshiba Classic as well!

Golf contests can be insured anywhere, any place, any time and are not only a great way to increase excitement, but increase fundraising dollars as well. No matter what your specific goals happen to be, give Hole In One International a call at 800-827-2249 and we’ll help you find the golf contest that is best suited for your company/organization’s needs.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Golf Contest Insured at 2013 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am

golf contestHave you heard the big news?  Hole In One International insured a golf contest at the renown PGA charitable event, the 2013 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am!  The contest itself is dubbed “The 3M Celebrity Challenge” and occurred Wednesday, February 6, 2013 at 11:00am.

Twelve celebrities (chances are you probably know of at least a few of them… do the names Ray Romano, Bill Murray and/or Kenny G ring a bell?) gathered at the 17th hole at Pebble Beach Golf Links for a chance to participate in a golf shootout contest!  If any of the twelve celebrity golfers ended up scoring a hole in one on the 170-yard hole, they would have scored $100,000 for their designated charity, paid for Hole In One International!

Golf Contest: A $100,000 Shootout for Charity!

The best part about Hole In One International’s hole in one and shootout insurance is that the coverage isn’t limited to one player!  Technically, if all twelve celebrity golfers were to have aced the 170-yard par 3 hole, they each would have landed $100,000 for their designated charity — again, compliments of Hole In One International!

“Insuring a major PGA event such as this one is undoubtedly great news for our company”, states Kristen Hansen, Marketing Assistant with Hole In One International.  “The fact that we’ve been privileged enough to insure a golf contest at both the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, as well as the Phoenix Waste Management Open this year, is definitely a feel-good experience.  Being the golf enthusiasts that we are here at Hole In One International, it’s also exciting for all of us to watch the events live to see if we end up with a winner — or at least to see who comes close!”

Million Dollar Shootout at Phoenix Waste Management Open

million dollar shootoutNow here’s some exciting news: For the 5th year in a row, Hole In One International, had the honor of insuring a Million Dollar Shootout during the 2013 Phoenix Suns Charities Shot at Glory event which occurred during the Phoenix Waste Management Open on January 30, 2013!

On the infamous 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale, 30 amateur players had a chance to make a million dollar golf shot from 160 yards… for a chance to win $1,000,000, paid for by Hole In One International!  Dierks Bentley of country music fame ended up landing his shot 19 feet from the cup.  While no one aced the the Million Dollar Shootout, there were still some big victories that day — one of which consisted of giving Bentley’s designated  charity — the Jordan Sterling Foundation– $35,000.  Runner-up Jim Pitman of the Phoenix Suns raised $25,000 for Phoenix Suns Charities and Dave Steiner of Waste Management raised $15,000 for his selected charity.

Million Dollar Shoot-out Signage

So you’re purchasing Million Dollar Shoot out coverage through Hole In One International?  That’s great!  Did you know that when you do so, a free sign with the sponsor’s name and prize description is included?

When it comes to customizing your Million Dollar Shootout sign, there are many factors to take into consideration.  Although the prize description for the Million Dollar Shoot-out sign is not customizable, Hole In One International still allows you a lot of leeway with what you can do with the “Sponsor Name” portion of the sign.

Information
What kind of information do you want the sponsor portion of your sign to contain?  Many people prefer to merely have the company/organization name on there; others prefer the latter along with an individual’s name or address and/or phone number.  Make sure you think about how you want your sign to read.

Artwork
Rather than just having plain text on the sign, Hole In One International allows logos and artwork, so long as the image you provide us is high-resolution quality.  Perhaps you’d like your company/organization’s logo on the sign, or maybe you’d like to couple your artwork/logo with some plain text at the bottom.  There are a variety of different ways to go about doing this.

Visibility
One other thing you’ll definitely want to pay attention to (which is often overlooked) is the visibility of your sign. Since the printed area with the sponsor’s name is only 11″x17″ (the sign itself is 30″x30″), the more text you place on your sign, the smaller the visibility will be.  If you plan on only having your company/organization name typed on the sign, the text will be large and easy-to-read; however, if you want more detailed information typed on the sign, such as an individual’s name, phone number or address, then the text will be smaller and perhaps a bit less easy to read.  Make sure if you’re using artwork/logos that the image is vibrant in color and that the color of the text on the logo (if applicable) does not clash with the background color.

When Hole In One International creates your Million Dollar Shoot out signage, they will gladly send you a proof of the sponsor’s name area if requested.  To request a proof, all you have to do is email us with the request… or you’re always welcome to give us a call at 800-827-2249!  Along with the request, Hole In One International will also need the contract/application number that your policy is under.  If you have any other questions about Million Dollar Shootout signage, or hole in 1 coverage in general, feel free to contact us Monday through Friday between the  hours of 6am and 5pm Pacific.

Million Dollar Shootout: Payout Options

Did you know that there are various forms of payout options available with a Million Dollar Shoot out policy through Hole In One International?

Annuity Information.The first and most popular option is a 40-year annuity.  The 40-year annuity option means that the $1,000,000 prize will be paid out over 40 years ($25,000/year for 40 years) should there be a hole in 1.  When it comes to pricing out a Million Dollar Shoot-out quote, a 40-year annuity will land you the cheapest price possible.

The second most popular option is a 20-year annuity.  With a 20-year annuity, the $1,000,000 prize will be paid out over 20 years ($50,000/year for 20 years) in the event of a hole in 1.  Please note that this Million Dollar Shoot-out payout option is more costly than a 40-year annuity due to the fact that a larger sum of money will be paid out to the acemaker each year.

Hole In One International also offers 10-year & 30-year annuities as well.  While the 10-year annuity option is the most costly, it also allows for the maker of the hole in 1 to be paid $100,000/year for 10 years!  Not too shabby!

It is important to note that any prize value over $250,000 will be in the form of an annuity.  Want potential acemaker(s) to win cold, hard cash all in one lump sum instead of payments?  Then be sure to insure a prize that’s $250,000 or below!
