Spring Is Just Around The Corner!

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

Spring is just around the corner and as the temperatures start to warm up it’s never too early to start planning your golf tournament. US Hole In One is happy to provide you with the necessary information to purchase hole in one insurance. Whether you are a first timer or a seasoned professional, we can help you with all your golf hole in one insurance needs.

If you are new to hole in one insurance, there are three major pieces of information that you will need in order to receive a price quote from US Hole In One. The first will be the number of golfers you are anticipating for the tournament. No one will no the exact number of golfers when they are ready to purchase hole in one insurance so keep in mind that you can change the number of golfers up until the morning of the tournament. The change will need to be in writing, either email or fax, before the event starts.

The second piece of information that we will need to know is the yardage of the par-3 hole you have selected for the Grand Prize hole in one. Selecting the par-3 is something that you and/or your golf committee will choose. As long as the yardage meets the proper requirements for your prize value then that hole is fine with US Hole In One. The minimum yardage is 150 yards for prizes under $50,000.

The third and final piece of information necessary to obtain a price quote from US Hole In One is the value of the Grand Prize hole in one you wish to offer to your golfers. Like the yardage of the par-3, the value of the Grand Prize is completely up to you. Many customers love doing cash simply because it’s the easiest hole in one insurance option. If you would prefer to offer a new vehicle or a motorcycle or a boat and you would like to have it displayed at the golf course on the day of your tournament you would just need to set that up with a dealer in your area.

Once you have these three pieces of information you are ready to contact US Hole In One and get your hole in one insurance price quote. You will also want to provide your tournament consultant with the name of your business or organization and your current contact information. Once we have that information we will email you over a price quote along with the hole in one insurance application that you would need to fax back into our office to get the insurance in place.

What Comes In Your Hole In One Insurance Package

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

Many of our customers think that when you purchase hole in one insurance from US Hole In One you just get the coverage for the grand prize hole. However, it is quite the opposite. The hole in one insurance package includes: bonus prizes for other par-3’s on the course, full color tee box signs, free golf club gift certificates, free direct shipping for signage, and no hidden policy fees.

The bonus prizes for the other par-3’s on the course are for hole in one insurance contests on those holes. Essentially with the purchase of the insurance for your grand prize hole you will also have a hole in one contest on each of the other par-3’s on the course at no extra charge. Each one of the additional holes must play 130 yards or long for the men and the ladies can play up to 15 yards closer. Those prizes will be a flat screen TV from Sharp, a set of Callaway Diablo Irons, and two roundtrip domestic airline tickets.

Full color tee box signs are also provided at no extra charge for both the grand prize hole and the other bonus par-3 prize holes. You can also put a sponsor name on the grand prize sign and/or the bonus prize signs. You can use the same name or different names and you can also use a logo if you would like to.
The free golf club gift certificates will be sent in the box with your signs and there will be enough for every golfer in your tournament. You are free to give them out at registration or put them in goodie bags if you are choosing to do those for your tournament. The golfers, if they choose to redeem the certificates, will just be responsible for paying the shipping and handing. Depending on the club that the golfer chooses, a wedge or a hybrid, the shipping is under $25.

Free direct shipping in regard to the free signs is guaranteed as long as US Hole In One receives the one page application form at least ten (10) calendar days before the tournament date. We can either ship directly to your home or business or to the golf course if that would be easier. We will ship to whichever destination is best for you.

Finally, US Hole In One offers no hidden policy fees. Any changes can be made to the policy up until the morning of the tournament. All changes must be submitted, in writing, before the tournament starts. In regard to weather, you just need to let us know by the first business day following the originally scheduled tournament date and you can reschedule without any fees.
