Two Aces More Common Than You May Think!

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!

Want to make sure that any lucky player making double aces during your tournament takes home a prize – or that everyone who makes an hole in one will get a prize winner this season?  Then give Hole In One International a call at 800-827-2249 to speak with one of our experienced contest consultants or email us for further information on how to get started!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Fun Ways to Qualify For a Million Dollar Shoot Out

If you plan on holding a Million Dollar Shootout, then you’ll need to pre-register/pre-qualify your players prior to the event.  Deciding the best course of action to take when it comes to qualifying your players can be quite confusing at times.  After all, there are a vast number of ways to go about doing so.  So how are you supposed to know which method will be most beneficial for your company or organization?  Let’s take a look:

If your goal is to fundraise, then the simplest way to qualify players would be to hold a raffle.  Depending on how big your company or organization is, you can charge anywhere from $1 to $2 upward toward $20 or $50 for an individual to enter a raffle and have their name drawn for a shot at $1,000,000.

Another way to help fundraise would be to have a silent auction.  The individual(s) with the highest bid received at the auction will then have the opportunity to participate in the Million Dollar Shoot-out.

You could also hold a merchandise sale and have the top 1-2 consumers who have spent the most money be the qualifiers!

Skills-based qualifiers are another great way to narrow down your players.  Having a longest or straightest drive contest or closest to the pin contest will help narrow down your players and determine who will be able to participate in the Million Dollar Shoot out.

If you’re having an actual golf tournament and the Million Dollar Shootout is to take place after the tournament, another option would be to take your first/last place team members and bring them back for the shot.

For added fun, be sure to offer consolation prizes to the other participants so they don’t leave empty-handed, whether it be a t-shirt, a sleeve of golf balls or perhaps a pro shop gift card where players can purchase merchandise or a free round of golf at the golf course!

Shootouts at the Driving Range

Chances are that at your next golf event, you’ll likely hold your shootout at a golf course.  But did you know that Hole In One International also allows you to hold shootouts on a driving range once your players are pre-qualified?  All you need to do is follow the USGA regulations below:

  • Make sure the size of the flag and cup are under USGA regulations
  • Make sure the green is a USGA regulation-style green (no Astroturf or other synthetic materials)
  • Make sure the green’s grass is mown the same way as any other standard green

And as with any other of our insurance policies, you’ll also want to make sure you measure the yardage from the actual hitting on the tee box to the hole cut in the green and that the yardage isn’t lower than what you state on your contest coverage application.

Wanting to give away a big prize at your next shootout contest on the driving range?  No problem; our contest consultants are here to help! You can call and speak to one by calling 800-827-2249 or just email us for a free, no-obligation quote!

P.S. To get you an accurate quote, we will need to know the following: how many players will be taking the shot, the yardage of the hole and the prize value you plan on going with.
