Witness Requirements

Friday, January 16, 2015

In order to guarantee a payout in the case of a winner, making sure the correct witness requirements are met for a hole in one insurance, putting and shootout contests is every important. Each of these contests have different requirements, some more intense than other due to a high element of risk involved with the hole in one insurance. Reading the terms and conditions for the contest you are running and being very familiar with those terms and conditions is a must. Take a look here at the different witness requirements for the contests offered by US Hole In One.

Hole In One & Shootout Contests

  • All witnesses must be 18 years of age or older and appointed by the association member.
  • For all prize limits, two (2) playing partners of the winner are required, including the bonus hole in one prizes.
  • Prize limits of $2,000 to $59,999, one non-event participant witness.
  • Prize limits of $60,000 to $150,000, two non-event participant witnesses.
  • Prize limits of $150,001 to $1,000,000, two non-event participant witnesses (one of which is a PGA Professional or Police Officer), as well as a continuous, unedited videotape shot from behind the green of all shots to win the prize.
  • A videotape is also required, in addition to the witness requirements for all agreements in which both: the number of contestants is 24 or less AND the Prize Value is $25,000 or greater.

Putting Contest

  • All witnesses must be 18 years of age or older and appointed by the association member.
  • For all prize limits, a continuous, unedited videotape must show the measurement of the putt distance, ball placement and the ball being struck and ending up in the hole (cup).
  • Prize limits up to $10,000, one non-contest participant witness is required.
  • Prize limits $10,001 to $50,000, two non-contest participant witnesses is required (one of which must be a PGA Professional).

Where the witness is located is also important. The non-participating witness(es) must be able to see both the teeing ground and the hole of each golfer striking their shot from the tee box,and of the golf ball making its way all the way into the hole. So, as long as the witness has a clear, unobstructed view of each golfer striking their shot from the tee box and of the golf ball making its way all the way into the hole, they can be anywhere on the golf course. If the course has hole with a blind tee shot of some kind, we recommend having two witnesses for the hole to make sure that you have at least have one witness who saw the golfer tee off, and one witnessing the ball going into the cup.

If you still have questions about your witness requirements, please do not hesitate to contact your tournament consultant at US Hole In One by email at or by calling us at 888-882-5440. We are more than happy to answer any questions!
