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!

Insurance Underwriting

If you’ve ever shopped around for hole in one insurance, chances are you’ve come across the terms ‘underwriter’, ‘underwritten’, ‘underwriting’ or some variation thereof.  Today we’re going to cover what underwriting actually is, as well as how it directly benefits you: the hole-in-one insurance, Million Dollar Shootout and/or putting contest consumer.

What is Underwriting?
Put simply, underwriting refers to the process that any large financial service provider uses to assess the eligibility of a customer to receive their products (in this case, insurance).

Insurance underwriters assess the clients’ risk and decide how much coverage the client should receive, how much they should pay for it, or whether or not to insure them. Insurance underwriting involves measuring risk exposure and determining the premium that needs to be charged to insure that risk.

Hole In One International and its sister company Odds On Promotions both offer a special form of insurance underwriting known as prize indemnity insurance.

In the realm of prize indemnity insurance, it’s extremely important to make sure the company you’re working with is underwritten; otherwise, you as a client/consumer, could risk a winner not being paid out the money for their hole-in-one and/or putt… regardless of the fact that you have paid a premium for the insurance policy.

Unfortunately, this circumstance is a reality and we have seen it happen to winners who participated in a golf tournament insured by hole in one insurance companies who were not underwritten.

How Do I Know If The Company I’m Working With Is Underwritten?
If you’re unsure if the company you’re working with is underwritten, the simplest and most effective way of knowing is to simply call and ask!  You can also look for undwriting information on the company’s website.  Ours, for example, is located on our FAQ, as well as at the very top of our main homepage.

Who is Hole In One International’s Underwriter and What is Their Rating?
Hole In One International is proudly underwritten by the Everest National Insurance Company, which is part of Everest Re Group, Ltd. of Hamilton HM DX, Bermuda, one of the top 10 insurers/reinsurers worldwide. verest National Insurance Company is rated “A+” (Excellent) by A.M. Best: the world’s leading insurance rating agency. This made Praetorian Insurance Company the logical choice to underwrite our hole in one insurance program.

That’s Great … But How Does That Benefit Me?
With A-rated underwriting, you’ll have the peace of mind knowing that your hole-in-one and/or putting contest insurance coverage is valid and 100% covered.
