Golf Contests: Creative Ways To Qualify Players & Fundraise

Insuring a golf contest at your upcoming golf outing that requires you to narrow down your players in some fashion?  Whether it’s a Million Dollar Shootout, chipping contest or other insured contest, here are a few ideas from Hole In One International on how to pre-qualify your player(s) to determine who gets to participate in your golf contests, as well as how to increase fundraising dollars, come the day of your golf tournament!

1.) The Raffle
A raffle is the most common way to pre-select participants for your golf contests.  Players simply pay a fee, determined by the golf tournament committee ahead of time, to have their name entered into a drawing should they want the opportunity to participate in a golf contest.  Place the name of everyone who pays up into a hat, box, bucket, barrel, you name it!  Then, simply draw a name at random to see who the lucky qualifier/golf contest participant will be!  Want to collect valuable marketing information?  When creating your raffle tickets, have a space for each player’s information — email, phone number, address, etc.

2.) Purchasing Mulligans
A mulligan is an automatic “do-over” on a shot, meaning the player can play it again if it was a particularly bad shot.  Charge your players $x per mulligan during your golf outing — just make sure they’re aware that they cannot use any on the designated target hole, if a hole-in-one contest is being insured.  Whoever ends up purchasing the most mulligans will come back at the end of the outing for a chance to participate in your golf contests!  It’s that simple!

3.) Auction
Holding an auction as part of your golf outing?  Whether it’s a live charity auction or silent auction, people are always trying to gain the upper-hand… especially when it’s revolving around the game of golf!  There’s a good chance that the bids during an auction will go very high, generating some great fundraising bucks!  Have the highest bidder come back at the end of the auction to participate in your golf contest for the chance to win big!

Are the gears turning yet?  Can you think of any other great ways to qualify players and fundraise when it comes to insuring golf contests?  Feel free to share them with us!  Or, if you have any questions, feel free to contact us at 800-827-2249 or email us!

Featured Million Dollar Shootout Winner: Jason Hargett

Hargett With CheckIf you’re a golfer, then chances are you’ve heard the name ‘Jason Hargett.’

Hargett is Hole In One International’s latest Million Dollar Shoot-out winner from Provo, UT who ended up acing a 150-yard hole with his nine iron at the Mark Eaton Celebrity Classic.  The tournament took place at Red Ledges Golf Course in Heber City, Utah back in September of 2009.

Funnily enough, Hargett was somewhat reluctant to become a last-minute replacement in the tournament, as he suffered from a sore wrist.  He aced the hole using a borrowed club from his brother… and then fell down as he charged the hole after the shot!

Hargett taking a swingHargett, the 35-year-old restaurant manager, decided to keep his day job despite having won the Million Dollar Shoot Out and decided to put a chunk of the money toward his childrens’ college funds.

The Million Dollar Shoot-out makes a great fundraiser and is also a great contest to run just to offer your players a ‘little’ something extra (to the tune of $1,000,000!).  Want to make someone one of our next Million Dollar Shootout winners?  Need hole in one coverage?  Give us a call at 800-827-2449 or email us for a free, no-obligation quote!
