How to Fill Out Your Hole In One Application

Friday, April 29, 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!
