Ways to Spice Up Your Next Fundraising Golf Tournament

Looking to raise even more money at your next golf tournament? A great way to do this is to offer a Putting Contest. Many people are now giving raffle tickets to their golfers as a “thank you” for making a donation to their charity. At the end of the event you pull one raffle ticket and let that golfer take the putt. There’s nothing better than giving money to help out a great cause and then getting a chance to sink a putt for $25,000.

The putting contests we have many different options. Our most popular is the 50 foot putt for one lucky golfer. However, you can purchase coverage for 40 or 50 foot putts and offer any type of prize that you wish. If US Hole In One is covering your Hole In One contest you can even add-on a 60 foot putt to your package at a discounted rate. Most putting contests take place on the Practice Green which allows for everyone at the tournament to watch that lucky golfer take their chance at winning big!

Another option for the putting contest would be to pick a few raffle tickets and give those golfers a chance at a putt-off to get down to one person that will take the big money putt. If you wish to run your contest this way there are two criteria that must be followed. The qualifying putts cannot be more than half of the distance of the final putt and must take place on a different hole than the final putt. So if you purchase coverage for a 50 foot putt make sure your qualifiers are 25 feet or less.

There are lots of options when is comes to raising money at your next golf tournament and US Hole In One would be happy to put a package together that best fits you.
