Types of Golf Insurance For Your Event!

Friday, December 4, 2015

US Hole In One offers 3 different types of contest coverage for your golf tournament.  These contests give your golfers a chance to win big prizes at your event and make it more exciting!  The three contests that are available for your golf tournament are hole in one, putting and shootout.

Hole In One Contest

The hole in one contest is done during the course of play which involves all golfers in the tournament. It gives all the golfers playing in your event 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 number of golfers, yardage of the par 3, and value of the grand prize.

Putting Contest

A putting contest is a very fun and exciting 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 the prize!

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!
