How to Insure Hole-in-One Golfing Events

Hole-in-One Golfing Events are unique in that they offer a specific prize to a participant that aces an identified hole. The prizes may incorporate cash, new vehicles, or other luxury goods. Sponsors need to purchase a special type of indemnification prize coverage to protect themselves from losses before the event takes place. Insurance coverage is subject to a situation when a hole in one is played and the prize is presented. Typically, a minimum of 2 contest officials must verify the hole in one and that it was played according to rules before insurance covers the loss.

Hole-in-One Insurance Coverage is important because:

  • Prospective event profits are protected
  • Notable prizes will draw more event participants along with media exposure
  • Hole in One prize can be funded by local business thereby bringing in added income
  • It is a nominal way to present a sensational prize at no risk

  1. For-Children, a childhood disease charity, organized a golfing fundraiser. They advertised a $50,000 cash prize for any golfer who would make a hole in one on hole number 13. The very first golfer to swing his club aced that specific hole and was declared winner of the prize. Luckily, the insurance coverage that was purchased included unlimited prize restoration. This allowed the promise of awarding another hole in one golfer to be possible. The particular coverage also ensured that For-Children disease charity would win $10,000 because the policy included 20% of the prize value to be given to the charity. 

  2. A neighborhood church sponsored a golf tournament to raise money for breast cancer research. One of the participating golfers hit a hole in one and won the $25,000 cash prize. As per the terms of the contest, the breast cancer research was awarded $5,000.

  3. A mental health organization held its yearly golf tournament fundraiser. Two holes were advertised hole in one prize possibilities. Lo and behold, both had hole in one winners with total payouts at $55,000 and an added $11,000 to go towards the mental health group.
