Offering hole in one prizes can turn an ordinary event into something unforgettable. There is no better way to attract more golfers, generate more revenue and add extra fun and excitement to a charity golf day than by running a hole in one event
As the organiser of a charity golf day you can select a significant prize – such as a car or a luxury holiday – and should a participant shoot a hole in one on a designated hole then they can win it. Until 2012 it wasn’t possible to run hole in one competitions such as these as the ‘Royal & Ancient’s’ rules didn’t allow for amateur golfers to win a significant prizes in a competition without losing their amateur status. Since 2012, however, things have changed and providing that the hole in one competition is run during a round of golf and is incidental to that round then big prizes can be won without fear of them losing their amateur status.
You can reasonably ask participants in your hole in one competition to make a contribution towards your charity when registering. This can make real financial sense for charities running hole in one events as the following example, which assumes a donation of £20 per player, shows:
Charity event with 74 participants
Hole in one hole of 170 yards with a prize of a £20,000 car
Ancillary Prizes on all other par 3s
Donation from participating players @£20 each
Profit for the charity
