Forest City, Iowa – Imagine playing in a hole in one event where you could win up to $25K on every hole plus get a shot at $1,000,000 – and then you get a hole in one.
Well, that’s exactly what happened to Kevin Ambrisco, who scored $5,000 courtesy of Scoopy Doos, and paid for by Hole In One International.
Ambrisco captured the big bucks after he aced Bear Creek Golf Club’s 135-yard 16th hole during the 2018 Tree Town Aces Hole In One Golf Tournament. It was Ambrisco’s second hole in one.
The tournament, which has been running for the past decade, features a unique “hole-in-one” format where the course converts all 18 holes to par 3s. All players hit a tee shot with the objective of making a hole-in-one followed by a 4-person best ball. On every hole, golfers can take home prizes ranging from $5K to $25K, sponsored by a different local business. This year’s event featured an impressive $137,500 in hole in one prizes. Plus, every hole featured a closest to the pin prize.
At the end of the tournament, all the closest to the pin finalists got the chance to participate in a qualifying shoot-out where the winner got the chance to play for $1MM, in a grand finale hole in one shoot-out.

Traverse City, Mich. – There’s no question about it, having hole in one insurance pays big dividends during any golf event, especially tournaments featuring professional athletes like hockey players.
For example, congratulations go out to Hole In One International’s latest winner, Detroit Red Wings defenseman Danny DeKeyser. DeKeyser recently won a 2-year lease on a 2018 Porsche Boxster, valued at nearly $37,000, courtesy of Porsche of Motor City, and paid for by Hole In One International.
DeKeyser won the 2-year lease after he aced the par 3 155-yard 17th hole on The Bear Course at the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa, during the team’s 19th Annual Detroit Red Wings Training Camp Classic.
According to DeKeyser, who describes himself as an “OK golfer”, he was aiming directly at the stick and thought he had a pretty good shot. Turns out the ball landed about 12 feet behind the hole and started spinning back towards the cup. This was DeKeyser’s first hole in one. As luck would have it, this was not DeKeyser’s only winning shot of the day. He also took home a brand-new driver after he won a long-drive competition.
