Putting Contest Insurance Rules:

Friday, May 25, 2012

Putting contests are great way to add even more excitement to your golf tournament and they are also a great way to raise extra money for your charity. When purchasing insurance from US Hole In One it is very important that you read the Terms and Conditions very carefully regarding the rules for holding a putting contest.

Unlike the hole in one insurance contest, the putting contests are not for everyone in the tournament.  Many people are confused by this and ask why everyone cannot take a putt for the cash. The answer is simple, the odds of making a putt are much higher than those of making a hole in one, and therefore it would be very expensive to allow everyone in the tournament to take a putt.

To pick the one finalist for the putting contest you can either hold a raffle and pick one name from a hat or hold a putt off.  If you choose to hold a putt off you need to make sure that the qualifying putts are not longer than half the distance of the final putt (i.e. if the final putt is 50 feet the qualifying putts must be 25 feet or less) and they must take place on a different hole than the final putt as well.  US Hole In One requires that all putting contests are videotaped and show the measurement of the length of the putt.  Depending on the value of the grand prize you will either need to have one or two witnesses who are 18 years of age or older.  One of whom may need to be a PGA Pro or a Police Officer.

US Hole In One’s Low Price Guarantee

Friday, May 11, 2012

US Hole In One wants to make sure their customers are satisfied and remain loyal to our company. We understand that part clients being loyal to US Hole In One is offering the lowest price and great customer service. We are so confident that we offer the lowest hole in one insurance price around for our clients. Included in the price, quoted to you by your tournament consultant, is not only the grand prize hole but also bonus prize holes and signs, all for one price! While most competitors don’t even offer a prize package that is all inclusive, US Hole In One guarantees that the price your receive from our company will be less than any other quote from a different hole in one insurance company.

In the rare case that a client comes back to us with a lower price from a different insurance company, the process of the low price guarantee is simple. US Hole In One will gladly review the quote and beat the price.  A tournament consultant will ask the client to email or fax over the lower quote just so US Hole In One can verify that the lower quote is from a valid insurance company (one backed by an underwriter). After making sure that the company has an underwriter, your consultant will adjust our price, and we take 10% of the difference then subtract that number from the lower quote. From there you will be emailed over an updated quote and application and you’ll have hole in one insurance in place that same day!
