None Of The Risk, All Of The Reward

Friday, January 18, 2019

It is increasingly difficult to differentiate your tournament from that of your past or competitor golf courses. The one thing that can make you stand out from the crowd is offering your golfers more than the ability to participate, but to be rewarded. US Hole In One specializes in prize insurance for your tournament so that you can provide all the rewards to your golfers, with none of the accompanying risk.

Purchasing hole-in-one insurance is a must for increasing excitement at your golf tournament and at the same time eliminating the stress of wondering if you will pay for the hefty grand prize. Think of it this way, imagine a player manages to hit a hole-in-one during your tournament and your company promotes a grand prize for $50,000! It’s hard to keep a chipper demeanor and be the face of the tournament after realizing your business just took a huge loss. Without hole-in-one insurance  you’d be liable for the whole fee instead of just the premium.

When you have hole-in-one insurance, you can gladly give out that huge prize and actually root for your golfers to win it. Instead of being known as the mundane tournament, your tournament can be known as the one where the local golfer won thousands for a hole-in-one!

New Year, New Tournament Ideas

Thursday, January 3, 2019

Deciding to have a golf tournament is just the first step. But coming up with the appropriate format for your outing is the next step in assuring the success of your event. With it being a new year, why not try nontraditional ways to play golf? Your players have the natural desire to try something different. There are too many different ways of playing for you to hold the same golf tournament year after year. Find a format that appeals to both your experts as well as amateurs with some of our formats below:


The scramble format is great in tournaments to speed up play. In a scramble the foursome plays together and records one score for each hole. All four golfers tee off then they take the best drive and all hit their second shot from there, the pattern continues for the second shot and so on until the ball goes into the hole. This results in more birdies and pars and a quicker round of play.

Better Ball

The better ball format is very common in golf tournaments. Every golfer plays the hole with their own ball. After each player has finished the hole the lowest score by any golfer in the group is recorded.. This gives the group the opportunity to throw out the poor scores so at the end of the round they end up with one overall lowest score possible. It puts groups of golfers against each other instead of every golfer for themselves.


The shamble is very similar to scramble where all the golfers tee off and pick the best drive. From here all the golfers hit their second shot, unlike the scramble the golfers then play their own ball from the second shot on, like normal stroke play.
