An Idea Worth Stealing…

Reno, Nev – Last golf season, every guest who played at ArrowCreek Country Club in Reno, Nev. at the regular rate had the chance to qualify for a shot at winning $1,000,000, plus an additional $1,000,000 for charity, in the ArrowCreek “Shot At A Million” shoot-out. Each day, the golfer whose ball landed closest to the pin on a qualifying hole received the chance to come back and win the really big bucks in October. What’s more, the weekly closest to the pin winner received $1,000 in ArrowCreek credit towards the purchase of a new set of clubs.

Better Fundraising is in the Cards…

Reno, Nev. – Do your golf tournament participants also love to play poker? You’re not alone! Many golf tournaments feature a few rounds of poker as part of the event. This year, why not up the ante (and raise a bit more dough) by incorporating a giant-prize poker promotion into the mix. Hole In One International’s sister company, Odds On Promotions, offers dozens of fun and rewarding poker-themed promotions that can be incorporated into your next golf fundraiser. Here are two tried and true performers:

Lucky Hand Poker Run – Imagine a Poker Run with golf carts. With Lucky Hand Poker Run, your tournament participants ante up a few extra bucks in exchange for getting to select a playing card at a series of designated holes during your event. At the end of the tournament, players enter their “hand” into Odds On’s Lucky Hand Poker Run verification machine. If their hand matches the preselected winning hand, they’ll take home the pot, and Odds On will pick up the tab. Bonus: The machine ranks all the hands and ranks them according to value, so awarding consolation prizes at your awards banquet is a snap.

Million Dollar Deal – Imagine giving any participant in your tournament, the chance to win $5000, $10,000 or even $1,000,000 at your awards banquet. With Million Dollar Deal Poker, your lucky contestant selects from 20 playing cards, sealed in Lucky Envelopes, in hopes of getting a Royal Flush and winning the Grand Prize, courtesy of Odds On! Make this one a true win/win by having the winnings split between the grand prize winner and your organization.

Hole In One International Insures a Shot at Glory!

Phoenix, AZ – Have you ever wondered what it would be like to hit a shot on the famed par-3, 16th hole at the TPC Scottsdale during the Waste Management Phoenix Open?tpcshotatglory1

Two lucky golf fans (one of whom is pictured to the left), along with a host of local media personalities, Hollywood celebrities, community heroes and tournament sponsors got the chance to do exactly that a few weeks ago as they teed-it-up for charity in a unique closest-to-the-pin contest known as the “Shot at Glory”, which took place immediately following the FBR/Xerox Silver Pro-Am prior to the Waste Management Phoenix Open.Nice Sign ...

Tournament hosts, The Thunderbirds, award more than $100,000 to the celebrities’ chosen charities during this unique event. And, if any participant was lucky enough to make a hole-in-one, Hole In One International was there to pay $1,000,000 to the charity of the acemaker’s choice, thanks to Mark Hester of Hester, Heitel & Associates, Inc., who has turned to Hole In One International to insure this very special golf event for the past few years.

While no one aced Number 16 this year, musician Alice Cooper (pictured to right) won the “Shot at Glory”, picking up $40,000 for the Solid Rock Foundation. Brett Frazier from Waste Management, whose charity was Keep America Beautiful, came second, while former Phoenix police officer Jason Schechterle, whose charity is the 100 Club, came in third.AliceTees

Raise More Money With A Golf Ball Drop!

GolfballdropcherrypickerPago-Pago, American Samoa – Looking to raise more money at your golf event this season? Maybe it’s time to add a golf ball drop to your event! The people of American Samoa are another step closer to the dream of having their first community swimming pool thanks to the Rotary Club’s 6th Annual Golf Tournament & $50,000 Golf Ball Drop.

Contestants in the golf ball drop purchase one of 1000 numbered golf balls which are then dropped from a bucket truck onto a target “hole”. If any of the five numbered balls falling closest to the hole match a preselected lucky golf ball number, the “owner” wins $50,000, paid for by Hole In One International’s sister company, Odds On Promotions.

While there wasn’t a $50,000 grand prize winner, three lucky ball-buyers still received some fantastic prizes. The first-place winner, Spencer Sword, took home a round-trip ticket to Honolulu, courtesy of Hawaiian Airlines. The second-place winner, Jackie Young, picked up $500 and the third-place winner was Jeff Shively who won $250. This year’s event helped the Rotarians to surpass their $100,000 fundraising goal getting them that much closer to a community pool.

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.
