One of the contributing factors for pricing a hole in one insurance policy is the distance of the hole you want to put the grand prize on. Along with the number of golfers and the prize value, the distance of the hole can change the price of the hole in one insurance significantly. If you are using a scorecard to determine the distance, first off the hole that you choose has to be a par 3 hole, these holes are the shortest on the course meaning the golfers have the best chance of hitting a hole in one on a par 3. Second the par 3 hole has to be 150 yards or greater for most grand prize values, on average most par 3’s will be around 165 – 170 yards however some can even stretch to 200 yards!
When deciding which hole to use for the hole in one insurance grand prize, if you are not familiar with the game of golf or the golf course where the tournament is being held, your best bet is to talk to the pro at the course and ask which hole he or she would recommend for the hole in one insurance prizes. The pro will let you know which holes have worked in the past and which ones he or she can push back in the case all the par 3’s are less than 150 yards. Also keep in mind that sometimes you don’t want to go solely by the scorecard especially when you are giving away a car or motorcycle that will be present at the hole during the tournament. Since you will want the car at the hole the pro will probably suggest a hole that is closer to the clubhouse so it is easy to transport the vehicle.
