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.

Hole In One International’s Latest Millionaire!

Hargett Swing

Heber City, Utah – Chances are you’ve already seen, heard, or read about Hole In One International’s newest millionaire, Jason Hargett of Springville, Utah.

Not only was Hargett’s million-dollar shot covered by every TV station in Salt Lake City, but his amazing hole in one was featured on The Golf Channel, The Early Show, The Ellen Show, Sky News Australia, USA Today, the Boston Herald, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, The Sun UK and of course, ESPN where he landed at #1 on the Top Ten plays of the Day! And that’s not all. Talk about your viral videos, in just a few short weeks, his prize-winning shot has been seen by over a million viewers on YouTube – and counting.

Now, in case you’ve missed the buzz surrounding this headline-making hole in one, Hargett won the million-dollar prize in a post-tournament shoot-out sponsored by the Villas at Poipu Kai during the Mark Eaton Celebrity Golf Classic at Red Ledges.

While we can tell you all about how Hargett was a somewhat reluctant last-minute replacement with a sore wrist, or about the fact that he was using a borrowed club – or even how he fell down as he charged the hole after the shot, we know you’d rather see it.

So here you go…

Shoot-Outs Make Great Golf Fundraisers

Running a shoot-out can be a very effective way to boost attendance and raise funds for your organization. Whether you add a $1,000,000 shoot out to your existing golf event or run one as a stand-alone event, a shoot-out is a fun way to attract attention and bring added excitement to your next event.

However, if you are worried about the risk of offering a million-dollar prize during your shoot-out, you should know that by working with an insured prize promotions company, you’ll be able to offer the million dollars worry-free.

That’s because if someone makes an ace during your event, the insurance company, not your organization, will pay for the prize. Continued
