Hole Distance for Women in Your Outing

If you are in charge of running a golf tournament for your company or local organization, you want to make sure that your event runs as smoothly as possible. Obviously, you are looking to run a top notch event with as few complaints from participants as possible. One of the most common complaints we hear from participants in golf tournaments is that the hole in one insurance provider that their tournament director selected required all of the golfers to shoot from the same distance. Unfortunately, that means the tournament director went with one of our competitors and not US Hole In One.

At US Hole In One, we base the price of the coverage on three different factors. The first factor is the number of golfers, the second is the value of the prize, and the third is the distance of the hole for men. We explicitly ask for the distance of the men's tee because we allow the women to shoot from 15 yards closer than the men. We have a minimum distance of 150 yards for the men but that means that the women can shoot from 135 yards if the men are set up at 150 yards. This 15 yard advantage for the women helps to make the possibility of hitting a hole in one equally feasible for both men and women.

The closer distance for the women applies to any of the contest holes covered with prizes from US Hole In One. That means that whether it is a grand prize or bonus prize hole, the women at your event can most likely tee up at their own tees and still have a shot at the prize. Sometimes the women's tee box is more than 15 yards in front of the men's tee box in which case you would simply ask the pro to move the women's tee back on that hole to within 15 yards of the men's tees. Remember, if you have any questions in regards to the terms of your agreement with US Hole In One simply call or email us and we would be glad to help.
