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.

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. See below for more details:

Free Wedge and/or Hybrid Club

Friday, January 13, 2017

“There’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad golfers.” Does this statement hold true for you?

It’s hard to part ways with your true love. That’s why some golfers try so hard to take a break from playing during the winter months, but they just can’t stop. If you’re one of these dedicated individuals — known as “all-weather golfers” — who plays in the winter, then US Hole In One is here to the rescue!

Learn how to prep your skills to play in the extreme cold.

Frost on the course may prove too slippery at times. Make sure it’s safe to play before you head out.

Know that the cold weather will shorten your drive. A good tip is to warm your ball up before you play, or play with a lower-compression golf ball.

Accept that your performance will simply be better in the summer than in the winter. It’s helpful to keep your body moving, through shivering can interfere with your game.

Playing golf in the cold can be tough, but it’s not impossible for the determined players out there! Discover more tips and details on how to play winter golf.

Welcome Winter By Improving Your Golf Game

Wednesday, November 23, 2016

Happy Thanksgiving from everyone at US Hole In One! We hope you have a great holiday spent with family and friends. Now that Thanksgiving is here, it means that winter is less than a month away!

The most loyal golfers don’t stop playing just because winter is almost here. Do you have extra time off during the holidays and are hoping to play despite the cold? If you’re planning to play golf during the winter, there’s some great tips to keep in mind. We’ve highlighted a few important ones:

  • Your golf course par will change with winter conditions. You may have to add on strokes to make up for harsh conditions.
  • Try practicing at an indoor simulator. It may not be the same as playing on an outdoor course, but there won’t be any snow or slush to worry about!
  • Use the winter months to improve your game for spring. Given the cold weather conditions, your skills will likely be affected. Instead of striving for perfection in imperfect course conditions, simply create goals to achieve by the springtime, when the regular golf season returns.

Keep in mind that winter won’t last forever, but your passion for golf can be maintained all year round by hosting a golf contest! Call us at 888-882-5440 or email us at info@usholeinone.com to get started on purchasing coverage.

Contest Coverage For Other Sports & Businesses

Friday, November 18, 2016

Golf season usually winds down during the winter, but that doesn’t mean the excitement has to stop! Through our sister company, Interactive Promotions Group, we offer hundreds of different contests for all events and industries. Whether you’re hosting a sales promotion and want to excite customers in a unique way or you’re planning an office party with a twist, we’re here to help your next event become a success.

Our insured sports promotions are a great way to involve both players and fans. Rather than simply watching the game, fans can also become grand winners through prize coverage!

If you own a local retail store and hold sales promotions for major holidays, spice things up by hosting a conditional rebate promotion in the weeks leading up to the sale. Or, on the sale’s first day, try hosting a Dice Roll or Crack the Vault promotion in your store to attract more customers!

Do you own a bar or restaurant and want to create more excitement during happy hour? Try sponsoring an insured dart contest or billiards promotion!

Regardless of the industry you work in or the size of your company, there’s always a way to generate more sales and customer excitement — and with a solution that’s affordable to you. Contest coverage lets both you and your customers save big.

Interested in sponsoring a non-golf promotion? Contact our representatives at Interactive Promotions Group by calling 888-882-5140 or emailing info@interactivepromotions.com.

Playing Golf In Winter

Friday, November 11, 2016

Winter starts earlier for golfers than it does for most people. During the warmer months of golf season — April to November — golfers can enjoy playing in dry and warm weather. These weather conditions allow the ball to travel farther and more smoothly.

Now that winter is here, golfers need to adjust their playing strategy for making different shots to get the same successful results. Cooler winter temperatures and wet fairways cause the ball to not travel as far and to sit lower in the grass. Winds are often stronger in the winter and may cause the ball to stray from your intended path.

There are many ways to improve your golf performance during winter. To give your shot more impact, try moving the ball back in your stance slightly before you swing. Now is a great time of year to experiment with hybrid clubs. If your shot is typically long, try using wood clubs instead of iron.

With the proper technique and preparation, winter weather won’t affect your golf abilities. You’ll continue to win big all year round! If you’re interested in sponsoring a hole in one, putting, or shootout contest, contact US Hole In One by calling 888-882-5440 or emailing info@usholeinone.com.
