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!

Planning Your Company Golf Outing

In a panic because you’ve just learned that you’re in charge of the company golf outing?   Looking for some tips on how to ttake your current outing from drab to fab?  Good news!  Kristen Hansen, Social Media Marketing Assistant with Hole In One International, is here today to help you out with some great pointers!

Name Your Outing
This may seem like a no-brainer but  it’s important!  Give your outing an enticing, yet simple and repeatable name.  For example, rather than using a generic name like “Hole In One International Golf Outing”, try adding a few attention-grabbing words (i.e. Hole In One International’s Whole Office Tee Off )  Already have a name for your outing you’ve been using previous years?  No problem!  It’s never too late to change it up!  This is your tournament, after all.

Find Your Players & Sponsors
You and your golf planning committee should be able to target potential players and sponsors with ease. You can invite employees, clients, and vendors. You can assigne your sales team to identify their own foursomes. Whatever is best for your … as long as you have a  game plan on who you plan on inviting.  Tip: Be sure to have someone from your committee build a website for your golf outing where players and sponsors can register/pay online!  Not only is having a website great for advertising purposes, but it makes receiving your funds as easy as 1-2-3!  And be sure to offer your sponsors their own  sponsor signs so they’ll get their recognition out on the golf course!

Scope Out Your Venue
Another important step to planning any golf outing is researching the golf course/golf club where you’ll be holding your event. Make sure the course can accomodate the number of players you plan on having that day, make sure the greens are maintained to your satisfaction and always be sure to consult with your committee before making any final decisions.

Make Your Event Appealing
You need to stand out!  Consider using a celebrity or local business leader as your event Chairperson, which will give your event instant credibility.  Offer a large amount of sponsorships and load them with value.  Also be sure that you’re offering fun and exciting golf contests to your event — the hole in one contest is arguably the most popular, but you could also hold a longest/straightest drive or closest to the hole contest as well.  The possibilities are endless!  Add pre-, on-course and after-event games to maximize interest.
