Putting Contest Winner Matt Norby Holes $3,000

Congratulations to our latest putting contest insurance winner, Matt Norby!

Grand Forks, N.D. – This June during a putting contest at Edgewood Management Group’s 2nd Annual Longest Day Golf Tournament, Matt Norby of Grand Forks won an 8-day/7-night Hawaiian vacation, valued at $3,000, courtesy of Edgewood Management Group, and paid for by Hole In One International.

Norby won the prize after he holed an impressive 50-foot putt during a fundraising putting contest which took place on 9th hole at the Kings Walk Golf Course, immediately following the tournament.

To participate in the fuIM-Putting-NorbyMatt-H358121ndraiser, golfers made a donation and took a qualifying shot on the practice green. Those who successfully made the initial 25-foot qualifying putt took their best shot at a 50-foot putt. After getting closest to the hole in those semi-finals, Norby got the chance to take another 50-footer on the 9th hole, this time nailing the shot, winning the Hawaii vacation for two.

But winning the tropical trip wasn’t the only surprise of the day. Turns out Norby had bet that if made the putt, he’d take a little swim.  Check out the prize winning putt – and Norby’s celebration dip.

According to Hollie Britten, Corporate Sales and Marketing Manager with Edgewood Management Group, the morning-to-evening “Longest Day” event, recognizes those who live with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers.

“This event is about educational outreach as well as raising money for the Alzheimer’s Association. We hold an awareness walk – a quick 1 mile, followed by a community breakfast. The golf tournament begins mid-morning with the putting contest qualifying taking place all day on the putting green. Then, after the tournament we had the putting contest finals, followed by awards and a live band on the deck at the golf course,” explained Britten.

“Working with Hole In One International was very easy – very smooth. But of course the best part was getting to walk across the street to Matt’s office and hand him that vacation voucher. That was fantastic,” continued Britten.

We thought that was pretty fantastic too! Looking for an affordable way to support a great cause in your community? Check out more ideas or give Hole In One International a call today at 800-827-2249.

Edgewood Management Group owns and/or operates 53 independent living, assisted living and memory care communities in seven states. The organization raised an impressive $27,000 during their Longest Day events with all proceeds going to the Alzheimer’s Association.

 

Putting Contest Winner Receives $10,000 in Combination Putting Contest

putting contest - winnerWickatunk, N.J. – Congratulations to Shane Boyce of Freehold who recently won $10,000, courtesy of Collier Youth Services, and paid for by Hole In One International.

Boyce won the $10,000 prize during a combination putting contest, which took place on the Eagle Oaks Golf and Country Club practice green at the turn during the 18th annual Collier Golf Classic.

To participate, players donated $20 each, or paid $60 per foursome, receiving a sleeve of balls and a shot at the big bucks. All contestants then got the chance to make a 10-foot putt. If they holed the 10-footer, they were entered into a bonus prize drawing for a golf bag and moved on to make a 30-foot putt. If they successfully holed the 30-footer, they would advance to the 50-footer and a chance to win the giant prize.

While two players qualified for the giant-prize 50-foot putt, it was Boyce who aced the uphill shot, scoring the $10,000 cash prize!

The golf outing raised over $61,000 to support at-risk youth involved in the programs at Collier Youth Services, a social service agency whose mission is to provide at-risk youth a chance to grow toward their potential in an environment that promotes belonging, dignity and hope. This was the 28-year-old Boyce’s first putting contest win.

Minnesota Man Makes Prize Winning Putt

St. Paul, Minn.  –  Congratulations are in order for Doug David who recently took home $2,500, courtesy of Employee Benefits Group, LLC (EBG) and paid for by Hole In One International after he made a 50-foot prize-winning putt in a cash prize putting contest during the 8th Annual Minnesota/Dakotas ESOP Association Golf Tournament at Heritage Links Golf Course in Lakeville.

Watch The Shot…

Sponsoring a big prize putting contest is an effective way to put your organization’s name in front of a captive audience while giving golf tournament participants the chance to take home a prize.

In this putting contest, EBG gave a few finalists the chance to sink a single putt for the cash prize, but you can qualify up to 5 lucky contestants using a putt-off, closest-to-the-hole putting contest, or a raffle which can be used to raise money for any cause.

One very effective way to run a single-putt putting contest like this one is to have everyone gather together at the putting green where you will set up an area to conduct a 50-foot putt.  Imagine how fun it will be having everyone watch as your finalists try to win your sponsored prize. As you can imagine running a putting contest in this way will add to the fun and excitement of any golf tournament.  To ensure a winning experience for every participant, along with your insured prize, you can make every shot a prize-winning putt, by awarding smaller, self-sponsored prizes to every finalist.

Hole In One International offers both single and combination putting contests starting from $150. You can learn more about how to give away a giant, attention-grabbing prize (without the risk of payout)  to any golf tournament player making a prize-winning putt as well as get a free quote on our Putting Contest Insurance page.  Or give us a call today at 800-827-2249.

Watch Long Putts Lead to Big Prizes

As golfers, we truly appreciate the skill it takes to sink a challenging long putt. So we’re betting you’re going to appreciate watching a couple of videos from two of our most recent putting contest winners.

In the first of our two showcase videos, you can watch as a man wins $5,000 in a putting contest that took place during the American Red Cross – Carolinas Chapter Golf Tournament at Sycamore Plantation Golf Course, where the contestant successfully sank a whopping 60-foot long putt.

In our second long-putt video we’ve got a guy sinking a 50-footer at Castle Hills Golf Course in New Castle, Pennslyvania, and winning $3750, paid for by Hole In One International, during the Royal Family Kids Camp Putting Contest which was sponsored by Love Heating & Cooling.

Check out this amazing 60-foot putt and this 50-footer for charity and let us know what you think!

As the nation’s leading hole in one and putting contest insurance provider, Hole In One International can help you run a profitable and rewarding putting contest that will add fun and excitement to your golf event by giving your the ability to offer giant insured prizes, without the risk of payout.  And it’s easy to add one to your event!

Next, select a few finalists via a raffle or putt-off, set up a 50-foot or longer putt, and gather everyone around the practice putting green to watch as your finalists attempt to win your long-putt contest and win your giant prize.
