OOPLogoAre you thinking about insuring a golf contest or promotion that’s not offered on the Hole In One International website, or that’s not being held at a traditional golf course?  Well, there’s good news… and even better news:

The good news is that we can hook you up with a fabulous company that insures everything from golf ball drops to chipping contests… and even jumbo dice rolls which can be held during your golf tournament!  The even better news is that the prize insurance coverage is provided by our own sister company, Odds On Promotions!

Feel free to browse all of the golf promotions Odds On has to offer… and if there’s not something on the list that you’re interested in insuring, don’t fret – just give one of their Promotion Specialists a call at 888-827-2249 or feel free to email them for a free, no-obligation quote and any other information you might need!

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 insured 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 that 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.

Hole In One International

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!

Make a Hole In One, Win Your Weight In ____.

Hole In One International

Looking for some unconventional hole in one prize ideas for your next golf tournament?  Look no further — we have a great story on one and a few unique suggestions for you!

Have you heard about pro golfer Elliot Saltman?  Saltman, who scored an ace during the second round at the Madrid Masters on Friday, October 7th, won a unique hole in one prize that day… his body weight in ham!  According to the European Tour Media Guide, Saltman weighs an estimated 235 pounds.  (That’s 235 lbs. of ham – wow!)  Cured and salted ham is considered a delicacy in Spanish culture and the jamón ibérico ham he won is valued at approximately $52/pound!  That means Saltman’s ham prize was worth $12,220!

Here are some other great weight-based hole in one prize ideas you can use:

1.)  Your weight in silver
Sure, the ability to boast and brag about your hole in one is a prize in itself, but imagine living your life in luxury should you ace a prize hole and win your weight in silver!  And by using websites such as SilverPrice.com, you’ll have the ability to hold on to all of that silver and monitor the cost until it peaks — then cash in on your newfound riches, should you choose to do so!

2.)  Your weight in canned goods to donate
For all you humanitarians out there, this one’s for you! There’s nothing quite like the gift of giving.  Make a hole in one, score enough canned goods to feed hundreds of families!  Did you know that a small can of soup weighs approximately 10.5 ounces?  If you weigh 150 pounds, that’s about 229 cans you’ll be able to donate!

3.)  Your weight in sporting goods
If you play the game of golf, then chances are you’re a sports fan in general.  Which is why giving away an individual’s weight in sporting goods would be a great choice for an offbeat hole in one prize!  Golf clubs, soccer balls, footwear, camping gear… the possibilities are endless!  Make a hole in one, score all types of sporting loot!

Whether you’re looking for more great hole in one prizes ideas or if you’d like a quote based upon any of the above, feel free to give us a call and we’ll get you a free, no-obligation quote!  All we need is the number of players in your event, the yardage of the hole you plan on using and of course… the value of the prize!  Call us today at 800-827-2249 or email us!
