Friday, January 29, 2016

Whether it is your first time purchasing golf insurance or you’re  renewing your coverage from previous years, we try to make obtaining hole in one insurance as easy as possible!  For our new clients, it can be overwhelming and a bit confusing when planning their golf tournament especially if he or she is not a regular golfer.  Here are a few answers to some of the most frequently asked questions we get here at US Hole in One.

What is the minimum yardage for my grand prize hole?

The yardage for the grand prize hole must be at least 150 yards for the men and 135 yards for the ladies.  The ladies can always play up to 15 yards closer than the men’s tee’s on all par-3 holes.  If the prize value reaches $50,000, the minimum yardage then increases to 160 yards for men, 145 for women.  For grand prizes $100,000 and greater, the yardage MUST be at least 165 yards for men and 150 yards for ladies.

What if I do not know my exact number of golfers?

That’s okay! Any changes that occur after you send us your completed application need to be made in writing via e-mail or fax.  US Hole in One requires written notification prior to tee off on the morning of your event.  All changes must be e-mailed to changes@usholeinone.com or faxed to 888-603-8424.

What is included in my prize package?

  • The hole in one prize package includes bonus prizes for all of the other par-3’s on the course in addition to the grand prize hole in one.  The minimum yardage on those holes is 130 yards for the men and wherever you decide to place those tees the ladies can also play up to 15 yards closer.
  • You will receive a sign for the hole in one grand prize, which we will print a sponsor name on for you, the tournament name or you can email over to us a high resolution logo. Also, you will receive signs for the bonus hole in one prizes.

The free golf clubs are from Warrior Golf.  Each golfer will have a choice of a wedge or a hybrid.  The clubs are valued at $200 and the golfers just have to pay the shipping fee if they choose to redeem the certificate.  The shipping on the wedge is $11.85 and for the hybrid it is $23.50. Each golfer will also receive a $10 off coupon from Golfsmith.com.

How to Fill Out a Hole In One Application

Friday, January 15, 2016

At US Hole in One, we try to make the process of purchasing hole in one insurance as simple and easy as possible.  Firstly a client can either call in or get an instant price quote online.  Our pricing is based upon the number of golfers, the yardage of the Par 3 and the price value of the grand prize.  Once a client provides us with all the necessary information, an e-mail will be sent to them with a price quote and a 1 page application that the client needs to complete.  Our hole in one application is broken down to seven sections.

Section 1: The first section requires your contact information as well as your company name.  The information in this section can be already filled in if you requested an online price quote or called one of our tournament consultants.  If the shipping address for the signage is different than your contact information, make sure to fill that in under the shipping information.

Section 2: This is where the golf course information as well as the event name is shown.  US Hole in One cannot provide insurance if this section is not completed.

Section 3: This is the most important section for our hole in one application.  In this section you must provide us with the date of your tournament, number of golfers (amateurs and professionals), hole number, yardage for the par 3, prize value and the certificate fee that you should have received with your price quote.  You must also verify if you’d like a sign for your grand prize hole and if you’d like a sponsor’s name on it as well.

Section 4: This is the additional bonus prize section where you indicate which package you’d like and how many prizes you will need for the other par 3’s that are on the course. The standard bonus prizes are included in your certificate fee, and just for $45, you can upgrade to premium bonus prizes that are higher in cash value.  We also include signs for your bonus prizes and you can customize all three of them with a sponsor name and or logo for just $30 extra!

Section 5: If you would like to purchase one of our putting and dice roll contests, this is the section where you would indicate which add-on contest you would like to get.  In addition to filling out this section, there is a separate 1 page application that we require you to fill out for the Add-On Contest.

Section 6: US Hole in One accepts a check or debit or credit card as payment.  In this section you indicate how you’d like to pay for your coverage by writing your credit card information or if by paying with check, we will e-mail you an invoice and you can mail the check to us.

Once you have completed your application, you can then fax (610-525-8004) or e-mail it to (orders@usholeinone.com).  If you have any other questions, do not hesitate to give us a call at 888-882-5440 or e-mail us at info@usholeinone.com . We look forward to working with you!
