It’s Never Too Late to Get Coverage!

Friday, May 13, 2016

The two questions that we hear at US Hole in One the most are “is it too late to get coverage?” and “how far in advance do I need to book my insurance?”  The process of securing your coverage begins with a price quote which you can receive online or if you contact one of our representatives.  We can even secure coverage that day!  There is no long waiting period for the insurance to go into effect, once US Hole In One receives your completed application we will issue insurance that very same day. At US Hole In One we want to make it as easy as possible for you. We can bind coverage at any point before the tournament, as long as the tournament has not started, we can get you covered!

We suggest that you give yourself time to plan the golf tournament and insurance so that you can take advantage of our hole in one prize package, which includes signage, bonus prizes, gift cards and more!  However, we have many clients that call us the morning of the tournament and ask for coverage.  This can be done with the hard copy of the application that your tournament consultant e-mails you or you can always purchase the insurance online on our website by filling out a price quote and then making the payment right then.  We ask that all applications get back to us 10 calendar days before the tournament so that there will be no charge for shipping and your signs can get to you safely before your tournament.  If you are within the 10 days we can still get you your signs in time, it would just be a $25 rush shipping fee and then if you’d like to overnight your signage it would be $50.  For those emergency situations where someone forgot to get insurance or your sponsor backs out last minute, it is best the fill out the online application, you will have coverage in minutes!


If you have any questions, please contact a US Hole in One representative at 888-882-5440 or e-mail us at  We’d be happy to help you out.

Witness Requirements For Your Golf Event

Friday, May 6, 2016

It is extremely important to make sure you meet witness requirements for your hole in one insurance, putting and shootout contest in order to guarantee a payout in the case of a winner. The requirements vary per contest, some more intense than the other due to a high element of risk involved with the hole in one insurance.  For the full witness requirements, you can see them on our terms and conditions when you receive a price quote and application from US Hole in One.

Hole In One Insurance Policy.  The requirements are broken down based on the prize value you are insuring.  Any prize under $60,000 only requires 1 person who is 18 years and older and not playing in the tournament to sit at the prize hole the entire time at the tournament.  For prize values between $60,000 to $150,000, two people are required as witnesses with the same restrictions as above.  Prize values from $150,000 to $1,000,000 need 2 non participants , one being a PGA pro or a police officer and 2 playing partners and it must be videotaped.  The bonus prizes do not need a designated witness sitting at the hole for the entire tournament, as long as the tournament will be played in threesomes or foursomes.  No video is required for hole in one policies UNLESS the value is $100,000 or above or if the tournament has less than 25 players and a prize value of $25,000 or greater.

Putting Insurance Policy. US Hole in One can insure putting contests up to $25,000.  All putting contests must be videotaped; this involves the measuring of the putts as well as the person or people taking the putt. For values $10,000 and under, just one additional person over the age of 18 is required to witness and 2 witnesses are required for any prize value over $10,000.

Shootout Insurance Policy.  Just like the putting contest, all shootout contests must be videotaped.  Most shootout contests involve a prize value of $100,000 or greater, due to the high value.  In addition to videotaping the contest, two witnesses must be present and one has to be a PGA pro or active police officer.
