Why Golf Is Considered “The Retirement Sport”

Friday, June 30, 2017

Retirement means a lot of things to a lot of different people. Whether you think it means to stop working, living on a yacht, or to do countless of leisure activities. But for many men and many women — there is one activity that cannot be ignored: golf. Even for athletes, the transition from basketball, baseball, soccer, etc. always lead to the sport of golf. Why is this so?

Golf is more than a sport. It does not require rigorous physical activity, and can be played professionally by people who are overweight, injured, or non-athletic. This allows people from many different backgrounds react positively to the sport. Even NBA’s MVP Stephen Curry shot a two-under-par 70 at Pebble Beach this year. Michael Jordan, Charles Barkeley, Ryan Succop and Tom Brady are amongst the long list of golfers who also play golf outside of their familiar courts or fields.

While golf serves as an excellent pastime for retirees, it can also help create an bustling social life and keep retirees physically active. What better way to create excitement for your senior golfers than by throwing a hole-in-one tournament?! Give your golfers the chance to win big with cash prizes and giveaways!

A Million Dollar Reason To Hold A Shootout Contest

Thursday, June 22, 2017

We can go ahead and list a million reasons why you should hold a Shootout Contest. But we only need to give you one reason – your golfers can win $1,000,000!

Why would you want to offer a million dollar shootout? The economy is changing, some of today’s best golf courses are feeling the pinch as membership dues do not come in, and golfers are hitting the greens less frequently. This may be the right time to host a million dollar shootout. Perhaps your employees are working hard and you want to reward them with a day on the golf course. It could be that you need to raise money for a charity and a million dollar golf shootout sounds like the right way to go.

These are just some of the reasons why you may want to host this very special event. The fact is, the only thing that feels better than actually hitting that hole in one is being able to win $1,000,000 while doing so. This is possible. Your organization can host a million dollar shootout and hand over those funds to someone who is able to be accurate enough to win.

In order to host this event, you will want to contact US Hole in One about their insurance products designed just for this event. That way, if someone does hit the shot, your organization does not have to foot the bill for doing so. Once you have insurance, host a qualifying contest, such as the person who hits closest to the pin or even a simple raffle. The person who wins the qualifying round is given the opportunity to try the million-dollar shootout challenge.

For all of these reasons (all $1 million of them) this type of shootout is just the right fit for virtually any event you may be hosting. Speak to one of our representative at 888-882-5440 or email us at to learn more.

Do The Math! USHIO + Your Tournament = Success!

Friday, June 16, 2017

You don’t have to be a mathematician to calculate just how awesome our services are. The math is simple. Our services + your event = success! We strive to add(+) giveaways and prizes to your event and at the same time subtract(-) the heavy cost. As a result your event will multiply(x) in golfer attendance and profits! To give you an idea of how successful your event can be we have broke down a sample “problem” that we have recently “solved”

Problem/Question: A dealership sponsored a hole in one contest at a local country club. All 224 golfers playing in the tournament had the opportunity on hole #5 to take a shot at winning a 2015 Chevrolet Camaro. From 142 yards, a golfer did just that, winning the grand prize worth $42,000. How much did it cost with US Hole In One to throw this tournament?

Solved/Answer: If you said $42,000 you are wrong. The cost to throw a hole in one contest with US Hole In One is a fraction of the cost of the actual prize. For this dealership, they ended up spending ~$2,500. We covered the cost of the prize leaving the dealer with only the certificate fee. Also note that the cost could have increased or decreased based upon the total of golfers participating, distance and prize value.

We can go further and list a ton of so called  “problems” that our customers face when throwing a tournament. But with our services, the outcome is always the same – success! You can also add(+) on additional contest like our Putting, Shootout or Dice Roll to give your golfers more opportunities to win.
