Golf Contests To Be Insured at American Century Championship!

We at Hole In One International are happy to announce we’ll be insuring a series of giant-prize golf contests during the 24th Annual American Century Championship, which will take place July 16-21, 2013 in Lake Tahoe, California.  Even better – one of the golf contests will be filmed by NBC TV for rebroadcast on Sunday, July 21st, 2013, during the actual tournament!

The first golf contest, developed in conjunction with a New York insurance agency, and sponsored by a PR company, will take place prior to the golf tournament, during their “Media Day” event.  The promotion will feature 40 amateurs who will each get two shots to make a hole-in-one from the par 3 17th hole, which measures 155 yards in length.  That’s a total of 80 chances for someone to become a winner!  A winner of what?  How about a cool $25,000 cash, paid for by Hole In One International’s sister company, Odds On Promotions?

But wait, there are even more golf contests…

To kick off the American Century Championship this year, the same  agency, working in conjunction with Korbel, will be insuring a combination hole in one contest and Ball in the Circle contest.  The contest, which will take place on Friday, July 19 will feature a total of 15 amateur golfers who will each get not one chance, but two chances, to hit a golf ball approximately 155 yards and either make a hole-in-one and win $250,000 or have it come to rest within the designated circle winning $25,000.  The contest, which will also take place on the 17th will be broadcast on NBC on Sunday, July 21, during the actual tournament!

Ready for more?   The third golf contest is a 3-day-long Million Dollar Shootout event, taking place July 19th-21st.  80 amateurs and 1 club professional will get a shot, each day, at winning $1,000,000 if they’re able to ace the par 3 17th hole… which will this time, be measured out at 165 yards.  This hole in one insurance policy will be written so that there can be a possibility of two winners, both of which could potentially cash out one million dollars richer the day of their ace.

Have we piqued your interest?  Want to make your next golf tournament a hit by giving players multiple ways to win big without the risk of payout? Want more information on hole in one insurance or a Ball in the Circle contests?  Give us a call today at 800-827-2249 for a free, no-obligation quote!  And don’t forget to tune in this July to watch the American Century Championship!

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!”

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.
