helicopter golf ball dropCalling all non-profit organizations: raise more dough this season with a helicopter golf ball drop!

Looking to add a little something extra to your annual golf tournament this year?  How about a helicopter golf ball drop?  That’s right — thanks to Hole In One International’s sister company, Odds On Promotions, this promotion can be insured at your next golf tournament… and for a nominal fee!  Plus, a helicopter golf ball drop can help you maximize those fundraising dollars!

The way it works is simple: sell as many sponsorships as possible by having individuals purchase numbered golf balls for a fee — how much you choose to charge them per ball, or per bundle of golf balls, is strictly up to you!  Contestants can either make their purchase at a specified location or better yet, online via your organization’s website!  Want to reward those who register and pay for their golf balls in advance?  Feel free to cut them a deal and discount the price of their golf ball(s) if they make their purchases x days prior to the registration deadline!

Come the day of the event, the helicopter will lift into the air and drop all of the golf balls onto a target area.  If the numbers on the balls which come closest to the target match Odds On’s preselected list of numbers, then they’ll be a grand prize winner… of any insured prize amount you choose, up to $1,000,000!  Wondering where in the world you’re going to manage to obtain a helicopter from?  We encourage you to team up with one of your local radio or TV stations.  You’ll get them publicity, and in return, you’ll gain use of their traffic helicopter!

A helicopter golf ball drop is an attention-grabbing promotion which can be held before or after your golf tournament.  In fact, it can even be insured as a stand-alone event, if you so choose!  Pick up the phone and give Odds On a call today at 888-827-2249 for a free, no-obligation quote on a helicopter golf ball drop promotion.  You can also email them with any questions.

Duck Race: A Great Golf Fundraising Promotion!

duck raceReady to have a quackin’ good time at your next golf tournament and/or golf event?  Are you a non-profit organization looking to increase fundraising monies to help support your cause?  If the answer is ‘yes’ to either one of those questions, then you’ll definitely want to consider insuring a duck race fundraising promotion… insured by Hole In One International’s sister company, Odds On Promotions!  Allow us to explain how the duck race contest works…

First, you’ll sell as many numbered rubber ducks to your contestants as possible — for a fee, of course!  How much you choose to charge each individual for a duck and/or allotted number of ducks is strictly up to you.  Participants can either purchase their ducks in person at a designated location or, if your company/organization has a website, you can even sell them online!  Feel free to cut participants an “early bird” deal, where if they purchase before a predetermined registration deadline, they can receive their duck(s) for a cheaper price!

On the day of the duck race, all of the numbered ducks will be dropped into a river and race downstream.  If one of the ducks reaches the finish line first and number of the contestant’s winning duck happens to match Odds On Promotions‘ preselected number, then that contestant will be a grand prize winner… of any prize value up to $1,000,000 (you make the call as to how much you want to insure the duck race for)!

Want those fundraising dollars to be increased even more?  Feel free to split the value of the insured prize 50/50 between the contestant and your non-profit/charitable organization!  And don’t forget to award your first, second and third place winners with smaller, self-insured auxiliary prizes, regardless of whether or not they end up being an insured grand prize winner.  Don’t let them leave your event empty-handed!

As you can see, a duck race fundraiser is perfect to hold and insure before or after your golf tournament… or even as a stand-alone event!  Feel free to give Odds On Promotions a call at 888-827-2249 for a free, no-obligation quote.  You can also email them with any questions.  Before you do, though… be sure to check out the great duck race fundraiser video below to get an idea as to how the promotion works.

Golf Contest Insured at 2013 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am

golf contestHave you heard the big news?  Hole In One International insured a golf contest at the renown PGA charitable event, the 2013 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am!  The contest itself is dubbed “The 3M Celebrity Challenge” and occurred Wednesday, February 6, 2013 at 11:00am.

Twelve celebrities (chances are you probably know of at least a few of them… do the names Ray Romano, Bill Murray and/or Kenny G ring a bell?) gathered at the 17th hole at Pebble Beach Golf Links for a chance to participate in a golf shootout contest!  If any of the twelve celebrity golfers ended up scoring a hole in one on the 170-yard hole, they would have scored $100,000 for their designated charity, paid for Hole In One International!

Golf Contest: A $100,000 Shootout for Charity!

The best part about Hole In One International’s hole in one and shootout insurance is that the coverage isn’t limited to one player!  Technically, if all twelve celebrity golfers were to have aced the 170-yard par 3 hole, they each would have landed $100,000 for their designated charity — again, compliments of Hole In One International!

“Insuring a major PGA event such as this one is undoubtedly great news for our company”, states Kristen Hansen, Marketing Assistant with Hole In One International.  “The fact that we’ve been privileged enough to insure a golf contest at both the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, as well as the Phoenix Waste Management Open this year, is definitely a feel-good experience.  Being the golf enthusiasts that we are here at Hole In One International, it’s also exciting for all of us to watch the events live to see if we end up with a winner — or at least to see who comes close!”

Golf Tournament Surveys

Now here’s an idea you may not have thought about before: golf tournament surveys!

A survey is a great way to get feedback from your golf tournament participants and attendees on what you can possibly improve on in the future to ensure that people keep coming back each year for more!  The questions you want answers to will obviously vary, depending on the nature of your golf outing, but here are some example questions you may want to consider asking:

  • How did you enjoy the golf course?  Did you find it too easy, too challenging or just right?
  • Would you be willing to travel to play a new course?  If so, how far?
  • Do you prefer to play golf on a public golf course or a private country club?
  • What day of the week is most ideal for you to participate in golf outings?
  • Do you feel that we offered enough various contests and activities throughout the day?
  • Were the food and beverages offered during the day of the golf tournament adequate?

Passing out golf tournament surveys to each and every player/attendee at the end of your golf outing is also a great way to gather referrals — whether they be golfers or volunteers — by asking them to list people that they would like for your committee to contact in the future regarding any future golf tournament events!  The more leads the better, right?

For more ideas on creating golf tournament surveys, feel free to give Hole In One International a call today at 800-827-2249… or email us at any time.  We’re here to help when it comes to help making your golf tournament a success!

 

Photos & Videos of Your Golf Tournament

NonprofitSwingWant to give your tournament participants and volunteers a way to remember your golf outing for years to come?  Then be sure to take as many photos and videos as possible before, during and even after your event!  Just make sure they’re quality photos/videos.  Wondering how to ensure that they are?  Hole In One International is here to explain how to make the most out of your visual memories and provide you with some great ideas!

Photos
Make sure you pay attention to what you’re taking photos of!  (This may seem elementary, but truth be told we see a lot of photos of scenery and beverage carts.)  While these types of photos are okay to have, it’s still important to focus on your main subject: your tournament participants!  Be sure to gather some great action shots of your players, individual photos and team/foursome photos.  Have your designated photographer (if applicable) drive around in a golf cart and take some unique photos.  Also be sure to take photos of any contest winners you happen to have!  If/when hole in one insurance is included in your outing, be sure to take a photo of any winners you have next to the prize they’ve won, if it happens to be out on the golf course; otherwise, have them stand by the appropriate signage on the hole that shows what they’ve won!

Videos
Be sure to take footage of your golfers throughout the duration of your outing.  Put together a ‘collage’ of sorts to share at your awards ceremony and sell to participants (as well as to use to promote the next event). It will make for plenty of laughs – especially if you manage to catch some footage of any golf follies, such as a player being stuck in an inescapable sand trap or a player’s ball landing straight into a water hazard.  Depending on the amount/quality of video equipment available at your golf tournament, you can also station the video cameras on a specific hole on the course and video each golfer playing that particular hole.  Or, if you have the time, you can even video each golfer’s performance from start to finish and possibly sell a video of their performance to them.  Looking to give your sponsor(s) additional exposure?  Feel free to include any necessary commercials in the video as well.

Need more photo/video suggestions?  Feel free to give Hole In One International a call at 800-827-2249… or email us, and we’ll be sure to help you out and give you more pointers!
