Types Of Putting Contests For A Golf Outing

Friday, February 14, 2020

You may be familiar with just one style when it comes to putting contests. However, US Hole In One offers three types of putting contests that you can hold at your next tournament – single putt, progressive putt and add-on putt. All contests give your golfers the opportunity to take a chance to putt for a prize. But there are differences between the three as well. To make sure you pick the right putting contest for your event, allow us to explain how they work and how you can benefit from them.

Single Putt Contest

With a single putt contest, you can allow your golfers to attempt a single 40 or 50 foot putt for a prize. If they successfully putt the ball into the hole, they win the prize, and US Hole In One Covers the cost! Depending on your budget this putting contest can be done with multiple participants. Or you can narrow your participant down to one lucky putter by holding qualifying rounds, or pre-selecting through a raffle to name a few options. Prizes can vary from a big cash prize to vacations and almost anything you can dream up.  

Progressive Putt Contest

This contest allows you to get more people in on the fun! Have your golfers start with the challenge of making a 10-foot putt. For those that are successful, they move onto a 30-foot putt.  The challenge then progresses to a final 50-foot putt for the grand prize. If any of your golfers are able to make all three winning shots, they win!

Add-On Putting Contest

The last type of putting contests is an “add on” that is purchased along with a hole in one insurance contest. The add on putting contest is 60 feet and the prize values are $2,500, $5,000 or $10,000. Since the add on putting contest has a discounted rates it is only for one person from the tournament.

Additional Benefits For Holding A Putting Contest

Whether you choose a single add-on or progressive contest, they all come with a complimentary putting sign which you can customize with your sponsor’s name or logo, your putting hole number and the prize to be won. You can find additional information about our signage by viewing our putting application or hole in one application. This can give you an idea of deadlines, requirements and more

Also, we also do not charge you for the shipping of the sign as long as you get us the application 10 days prior to your event date. Some other companies add fees onto their services for sending you the material you need for your event.

Keep in mind that we offer a wide range of golf contests including the standard hole in one insurance. If you are considering a hole in one contest or a putting contest, choose the company that has the means to ensure your security and to ensure your contestants have a fair shot at winning a fabulous prize. We also have a low price for our services which we match with a 110 percent low price guarantee. If you find a lower price we will beat it by 10 percent of the difference as long as it comes from a legitimate competitor. For more information on any of our putting contests give us a call at 888-882-5140.
