You Call the Shots, We Cover the Costs!

Friday, March 24, 2017

Things are looking rather different in the digital world, which has driven a revolution in the way we engage, interact and transact with customers. We are in a time where customization is at the forefront and customers have more power than ever before. Look at TV for example. We no longer are waiting for the TV guide. We use to watch shows we really didn’t even want to watch to begin with. We now have the option of watching what we want, when we want and how we want. The same can go for music and clothing. We now listen to only artists that we want to listen to and style (individualism) has become more prevalent than fashion and trends. With US Hole In One, we understand that our modern day customer has evolved and we have adapted right along with them!

We give our customers more options now than ever before. So what do you want your next tournament to consist of? Cash prizes, trips to world renowned golf courses, or giveaways? You’re in control of how you want to customize your event. US Hole in One takes care of the hard part – covering the cost of your win. You are protected from the worry of figuring out how you will cover the large win of a $1,000,000 Shootout!

So it’s your call! Reach out to one of our representatives to take control of your event! Call us at 888-882-5440 or email us at info@usholeinone.com.

Prepare Golfers for Your Next Hole In One Tournament

Friday, March 17, 2017

Not all golfers that attend your hole-in-one tournament will be professionals. To insure that your amateurs have an equal chance at winning the grand prize, make sure that they are equipped with the proper training tools. US Hole In One has listed a few recommendations for training your amateurs to be on the same level as pros.

Offer a Practice Round
In golf, many times the golfer has a chance to play a practice round to learn the course. During the practice round they determine which club to use, where the bunkers are, the location of any water hazards and out-of-bounds areas, and the layout of the green.

Hole-In-One Swing Impact Trainer
The Hole-In-One Swing Impact Trainer gives your golfers the freedom to practice their swing indoors or outdoors. It teaches a balanced swing and follow-through, develops the muscle memory needed for a great swing and enables the correct swing rhythm and tempo.

The Perfect Grip Trainer
This product teaches you how to grip your club correctly. You attach it to the grips of your clubs and make your regular swings. Your hands are your only connection to a golf club so you have to make sure that your grip is good. That makes it a lot easier for you to hit a good shot or even get a hole in one!

So if our game improvement tips are this good, wait till you get a piece of our world class hole in one insurance. Golf outings are so much more fun when there is a grand prize for hole-in-one winners. For information of the golf outing and insurance services that we provide, feel free to call us at 888 882 5440 or email us at info@usholeinone.com.

How the New Golf Rule Proposals will Benefit your Tournament

Friday, March 10, 2017

Let’s admit it, the sport of Golf has been showing it’s age – over 500 years old to be somewhat exact. It’s past puberty, went through menopause, and is now seeking more changes with the new proposed golf rules. For some, “it’s about time.” For others, what comes to mind is skepticism and disapproval. You can be the judge by reading about all of them over at the USGA website. The plan is to take feedback from golfers now, finalize the changes in 2018, and introduce them officially to the rules of golf on Jan. 1, 2019.

With the game of golf possibly changing, you can expect that your tournament will do the same. To take precaution, it’s a good idea to know exactly how your event will be affected. We have listed a few of the new proposed rule changes and how you can use the changes to work in your favor with US Hole In One.

Lost Balls
New Rule: You will be allowed to search for a lost ball for three minutes.
Current Rule: You may search for five minutes.
USHIO Tournament Proposal: Losing a golf ball on the green will seem like less of a problem if your players know that they have a free $10.00 cash card! USHIO has partnered with Worldwide Golf Shops to offer a free cash card to each one of your players! Your players can replace lost balls by shopping for new ones on their website.

Pace of Play
New Rule: Recommends that players make each stroke in no more than 40 seconds, and usually in less time.
Current Rule: No recommendations are given.
USHIO Tournament Proposal: Since players will no longer be able to take their time eyeing the ball and wait for the perfect breeze, nothing motivates players more to hit the ball than money. Speed up your tournament and offer cash prizes up to $1,000,000!

Playing with Damaged Club
New Rule: A player may keep using any damaged club, even if the player damaged it in anger.
Current Rule: A player may use the damaged club only if it was damaged in the “normal course of play.”
USHIO Tournament Proposal: Let your players get angry all they want! Damaged clubs with USHIO can easily be replaced with through our partnership with Warrior Golf Clubs. We offer free Golf club certificates for each one of your players at your tournament.

Player Accidentally Moves Ball
New Rule: If a player accidentally moves a ball when searching for it, or accidentally moves his/her ball marker or ball on the putting green, the new rule will be that there is no penalty.
Current Rule: 1-stroke penalty.
USHIO Tournament Proposal: By holding a Hole in One contest, the only time your players are moving the ball is once. One swing and one chance to win big cash prizes. No possible penalties!

With the new proposed changes, you can see that you and your players have nothing to worry about. USHIO has made it easy to adapt to the changes with our free offers and contest options. To find out more info speak to one of our representatives at 888-882-5440 or email us at info@usholeinone.com.

Pay in the Hundreds. Insured in the Thousands.

Friday, February 24, 2017

At US Hole In One, we stand behind our 110% Low-Price Guarantee! We want to ensure that our customers can have the most successful event without paying the most. When you get coverage through US Hole In One, if you have a hole in one contest winner, we become fully responsible for paying out the prize.  Feel good about being worry-free!

Our pricing is based on three factors:

  1. The Number of Golfers who will be participating in your event.

  2. The Distance of the Par 3 Hole that you will be holding your contest on.

  3. The Value of the Hole in One Prize you wish to award to contest winners.

With that being said, the higher the prize value, number of golfers and closer the hole distance, then the higher the cost. The lower the prize value, number of golfers and farther the hole distance, then the lower the cost. No matter what you choose, our customers pay way below the actual prize that is covered. It’s proven in some of our sample prices:

Something to Shoot for this Year… Literally

Friday, February 10, 2017

Since it’s the beginning of the year, we know that your golfers resolutions are set pretty high. As it should be. Whether they want to increase their performance, save for a car or trip, your event should meet their needs. How about giving your golfers something to shoot for this season with some of our top Prize Packages!

We have compiled a list of top resolutions from professional golfers. Whatever your golfers hope to accomplish this year, our prize packages and events will get them one step closer to reaching their goals. See below:

New Year’s Resolution #1: Improve on Putting
In 2015, Rickie Fowler ranked fourth in overall putting average, but last year those ranks dropped to 98th in overall putting. If this can happen to a professional, it can happen to your amateurs as well. Sharpen their skills by holding a putting contest. We offer valuable putting contest prizes for a fraction of the cost of the actual prize.

New Year’s Resolution #2: Step My Gear Up!
Nothing boosts a golfer’s confidence more than some style. If your golfers look better, they will do better. US Hole In One has you covered. We have partnered with Worldwide Golf shops to offer all of your golfers a $10.00 cash card to step up their gear.

New Year’s Resolution #3: Improve Driving Accuracy
Sometimes the longest hitters aren’t the straightest hitters. Recently at the SA Open, Rory McIlroy bogeyed the 17th when his putt for par rolled just left of the hole. “Disappointed to finish the way I did. I thought I hit a good shot on 17, it just pitched a bit too far,” McIlroy said. Your golfers can “straighten up their game” by holding a Hole in One tournament. With one chance to swing, your golfers will make sure that it counts.

New Year’s Resolution #4: Go on a Vacation Golf Trip
Going on a vacation is probably on everyone’s to do list. Your golfers are no exception. Don’t send them on any vacation. Send them on a trip that their skills can benefit from. We have a variety of getaways specifically for your pros. Get them excited about potentially winning a golf trip to Hawaii, St. Andrews or Pebble Beach!

New Year’s Resolution #5: Play in a High-Stakes Match
Your players will discover a lot about themselves in a competitive setting. For some golfers, it doesn’t start to get interesting until big, big, BIG MONEY is at stake. Just how far can they go in a tournament where the stakes are high – like $1,000,000 high? We have $1,000,000 shootout contests for a handful of your participants for a fraction of the cost of the actual prize.

Your golfers shouldn’t set low goals for the year, and neither should you. See how your next tournament can be your best tournament and contact one of our representatives at 888-882-5440 or email us at info@usholeinone.com.

Friday, February 3, 2017

If your golfers don’t take home the grand prize, their free club certificate and Worldwide Shops Cash Card will help sharpen their skills so they can become better prepared to win the grand prize during your next tournament.
