Ohio Insurance Agency Insures Multiple Golf Contests

Want to turn your next event into a “Golfapalooza” extravaganza?  An insurance agency based out of Ohio recently teamed up with a local sponsor, giving dozens of golfers numerous ways to win in a series of giant prize golf contests.

On the specified promotion date, the following golf contests were insured: a 3-putt combination putting contest, a shootout featuring multiple cups on the green, a 75-yard chipping contest and a ball in the circle contest.

The 3-putt combination putting contest, which consisted of 3 separate putts (10, 30 and 50 ft.), was worth a $10,000 insured prize.  A total of 37 amateur players qualified throughout the golf tournament in order to participate in this golf contest.

The golf shootout, which featured a total of 9 separate cups on the green, was insured for 5 shots per cup!  As far as the prizes available, there was one hole worth a $25,000 camper trailer, one worth a $25,000 boat, one worth a $25,000 vehicle, one worth $25,000 cash… and one worth $1,000,000!  If any of the 5 pre-qualified players were to make a hole-in-one into any one of the 5 insured cups, they’d win the designated prize… and Hole In One International would write the check!

The chipping contest took place on the driving range and also featured 5 contestants.  If any of the 5 contestants were able to chip a golf ball from 75 feet away, they would have scored $10,000.

Last but not least, the ball in the circle contest was also insured for 5 contestants.  If any of them had managed to make the 300-yard shot and if the golf ball landed within the “circle”, which measured 10 feet in diameter, they would have also been paid out $10,000… again, compliments of Hole In One International!

Radio Group Increases Listenership With Golf

MainGolfGolf lovers, stop right where you are: you’re absolutely going to love this innovative radio station golf promotion that comes to us from a radio group out of Idaho. Chances are that you’re even going to want to steal this idea for yourself after reading about it!

In order to increase listenership, this radio group will be qualifying 10 select contestants on-air 6 weeks prior to the promotion date. Now, surely you’re wondering what they’re being selected for

On the event date, the 10 listeners who qualified on-air will come to the local golf course where the promotion is being held and attempt to drive a golf ball 185 yards into a 2-foot floating ring! If the golf ball falls within the ring/circle, then that contestant will be the brand new owner of a truck valued at a whopping $30,000… paid for by Hole In One International‘s sister company, Odds On Promotions!

This promotion is a great one to pair up with a hole-in-one, putting contest or million dollar shootout insurance policy from Hole In One International! And the best part about insuring prize coverage with Odds On is that even though this event took place on a golf course, it doesn’t even have to! Indoor banquet halls, tradeshows, you name it — Odds On can insure your future golf promotion any time, anywhere!

Be sure to give Odds On Promotions a call at 888-827-2249 for a free, no-obligation quote on any/all of the golf promotions Odds On has to offer… or email them for more information, or even if you have a unique golf promotion idea of your own! If there’s a risk involved and no guaranteed winner, they can insure it without a problem!

P.S.  Make this a winner in any venue by using a short-distance ball and/or a floating range ball.

Insure a Lucky Duck Pluck at Your Golf Tourney

DucksLooking to increase fundraising dollars at your next golf tournament? Want to insure something unique in addition to your hole-in-one, shootout or putting contest? We’ve got just the promotion for you: a Lucky Duck Pluck, which can be finsured through Hole In One International’s sister company, Odds On Promotions!

Surely you’re wondering how it works. All you need to do is simply place a bunch of numbered rubber ducks in your golf course’s pond (or any other body of water). These rubber ducks can be your everyday traditional yellow rubber ducks or even “golfer” or “golf ball” ducks, as seen in this post. Feel free to have some fun and have a variety of different ducks floating around in there!

Tip: Have a major golf tournament sponsor? Here’s an idea — how about customizing your rubber ducks by including their logo on them?

Qualify your players to participate in the Lucky Duck Pluck via raffle, closest to the pin contest or other golf-related contest if your golf tournament is prior to the Lucky Duck Pluck, then have those qualifiers come back and select one “lucky duck” from the pond.  Feel free to charge players $x to participate in order to fundraise for your cause!

Each rubber duck will contain a number.  If the numbered duck the player selects happens to match Odds On Promotions’ pre-selected number, then they’re an instant winner… of any prize value you happen to choose, up to $1,000,000!  There are multiple ways to have your players check to see if their duck is a winner.  You can either use Odds On’s handheld verification unit or have the player call Odds On’s number verification hotline, enter the number on their duck and see if they’ve won!

another plastic duckWant to insure for multiple winners?  No problem!  You don’t have to insure for only 1 lucky duck — feel free to insure for 10 winners, for example, and have the total prize value (e.g. $100,000) split between each winning duck.  That would mean that theoretically, 10 people could each win a $10,000 prize!  You can also have a certain amount of rubber ducks (or all of them which aren’t the grand prize winning duck, for that matter) contain auxiliary prizes which can either be self-insured or provided by Odds On!

Want a free, no-obligation quote on this promotion?  Feel free to give Odds On Promotions a call at 888-827-2249 or email them at any time. Rest assured, they’ll help you customize your promotion to where you get the most bang for your buck!

Fundraising Activities – pt 2.

Last week, we went over activities and contests to help you fundraise before your golf event.  This week it’s all about what can take place during and after your event!  Read on for more pointers!

During your event, a great fundraiser to hold is a Par 3 Challenge.  Every golfer loves some good competition – not to mention the chance to show off, which is why this contest is so great.  Have one person bet their team $x that they can get their ball on the green with a single swing.  If they miss, that money will go to charity; if they make it, they can either get their money back, receive a discount at the pro shop… or both!  Another great idea is to have each team on the golf course purchase a Long Drive and have a local Long Drive champion there on the course with them.  Depending on who wins (the player or the ‘champ’), half of the money put into the contest will go to the victor, while the other half goes to charity!  Don’t you just love it when everyone’s a winner?

After your event is the ideal time to hold a Million Dollar Shootout.  Once again, charge players $x to get in on a raffle, draw a random name and have that person try and make a hole in one for a whopping $1,000,000!  After the event is also a great opportunity to hold a silent auction, which can be set up prior to the event.  Be sure to post up sign-up sheets for next year’s event and give players a discount off of the regular rate if they register on the spot… or an additional discount if they pay right there and then!

Looking for more contest ideas to help you fundraise at your next event?  Feel free to call us at 800-827-2249… or email us!  We’d be happy to help!
