How to Run a Hole in One Competition

Running a Hole in One Competition

Hole in One competitions are a great way to raise funds for charity, attract people to your golf club or make your corporate event day go with a swing. And with insuring your event you can run in it safe in the knowledge that a hole in one competition won’t leave a huge hole in your pocket So how do you run a successful hole in one competition? Here’s’s best-practise guide to running yours:

1. Get Hole in One insurance

Whatever the aim of your event, you’ll want to make sure that it isn’t going to end up costing you a fortune. Whether your prize is cash, a car or a holiday, for as little as £99 can indemnify you against your hole in one prize being won, allowing you to relax and enjoy the event.

2. Choose the right hole for your main prize

Choosing the right hole for your competition is important. It must play a minimum of 150 yards from the men’s tees and at least 135 yards from the ladies’. If you can chose a hole with a history of hole in ones then so much the better; it will help boost attendance if golfers think they have a realistic chance of winning and it will make your event much more memorable (and much more publicised!) if someone wins it.

3. Will you offer ancillary prizes?

Ancillary prizes are great for hole in one competitions as they can give even the most novice of golf novices a chance to compete and win. Offering prizes for best putt, longest drive, twos club, best escape etc. adds fun and excitement to every hole and they are simple to set up. Just make sure that your attendees know what’s on offer at each hole.

4. Witness a hole in one

You’ll need witnesses on the main prize hole so the hole in one can be verified. Don’t worry, here at we can provide full instructions as to what they’ll need to do should a hole in one be shot and it’s all very straightforward.

5. Get help promoting your Hole in One competition

If your hole in one competition is for a good cause then it’s a great idea to get all those involved to help you promote it. Suppliers of prizes, the course, equipment, hospitality etc. will all have publicity outlets so ask if they’ll help you with the promotion. Here at we’re always happy to help in whatever way we can so, when buying your policy, please ask if you’d like further advice.
