US Hole In One offers different types of contest coverage for your golf tournament. These contests give your golfers a chance to WIN BIG at your event, making it even more exciting! The different golf insurance contests that US Hole In One offers are  hole in oneputting and shootout insurance for golf tournaments all over the United States and in Canada. Let’s take a look at the difference between these three different types of golf contests!

Hole In One Contest

The hole in one contest is done during the course of play and involves all golfers in the tournament. It gives all the golfers playing in your golf tournament the chance to win the grand prize on the designated grand prize par 3 hole along with the bonus hole in one prizes on the other par 3’s. The price for hole in one coverage is based on the value of the grand prize, the yardage of the hole, and the number of golfers, amateurs and professionals. Hole in one contest are an awesome addition to a golf tournament because it gives every golfer in your tournament a chance to shoot for a grand prize.

Putting Contest

A putting contest is a very easy way to raise some extra cash at your golf event and it provides a great incentive for people to sign up. Putting contests are not for all of the golfers in the tournament. A putting contest allows the contestant(s) to take a single putt at 40, 50 or 60 feet away.  If they sink that putt, they WIN! It is that easy!!

Shootout Contest

A shootout contest is not for all of the golfers in the tournament. Shootout contests are priced per shot, so it is best to randomly narrow down the field to 1-5 golfers making it another great way to raise a little extra cash at your event. A shootout grand prize is a larger cash prize, $100,000 or $1,000,000, for example. Most clients like to set up the shootout contest on the hole closest to the club house so everyone in the tournament can witness the contest taking place. You can use a par 4 or par 5 hole and  just measure out at least 165 yards from the green and set up the shot from there. If the golfer aces that hole, they WIN!
