Ways to Raise Extra Money At Your Golf Tournament

Along with purchasing hole in one insurance, many of our clients ask us about other types of golf contests that we offer that may help them to raise even more money during their tournament. Foresite Sports also offers putting and shootout coverage which are both great ways to bring in some extra money. Whether you choose to offer your golfers the chance to win Ten Thousand Dollars by sinking a putt or a Million Dollars by hitting a hole in one you are sure to spark some extra added excitement during the tournament day! By selling raffle tickets throughout the day at various locations around the course you will get a chance not only to get to know the golfers playing in your tournament but you will also get a little time to talk with them about the special cause you are raising money for.

For the putting contest, you can choose to do a forty, fifty, or sixty foot putt. Most people purchase coverage for just one finalist but if you would like to purchase coverage so that you can select more golfers to take the putt you can certainly do so. The ten thousand dollar putt is our most popular and you can run this contest on the practice green. Keep in mind you will need to videotape this contest. Once you start recording you will need to video the golfer being selected and the measurement of the putt. Keep the camera running and back up so you get the one finalist, the length of the putt, and the hole all in the same shot. You will also need to have one person over the age of 18 who is not playing in the tournament as the witness.

The Million Dollar Shootout is sure to get your golfers excited! When the tournament is over pick one of the raffle tickets and give that lucky golfer a shot. You can do this on a par-three hole that measures 165 yards or you can use a par-four and measure the shot from the hole into the fairway. Again you will need to videotape this shot and you will need two witnesses over the age of 18 who are not playing in the tournament. One of the witnesses will need to be a PGA Pro or Police Officer.

Next time you give us a call be sure to ask one of our tournament consultants about adding one of these contests on to your hole in one insurance package for your next golf outing.

Young Golfer Hits First Hole In One

A hole in one at any age is an extremely exciting accomplishment. Some golfers go their whole life without an ace on their score card, so when Danny Wade was able to check that off his list at the young age of 8 years old, he was nothing less than ecstatic. The hole in one occurred when the father and son duo were playing at the Scotland Yards Golf Club in Dade City, FL. The two play the course close to 3 times a week and this was young Danny’s first hole in one, his father hit one here two years before.

Danny’s father said that he has always been a jokester, so when the hole in one occurred and his father didn’t see, he at first claimed he must have been joking and pulling a prank on his dad. Danny, who was celebrating on the tee box, was beside himself at the thought of a hole in one and once his father had seen the ball in the hole, both were jumping for joy on the green gathering some attention from the other golfers on the course.

Danny was a local star once his school got word of his ace. His third grade teacher even created a whole lesson plan out of his hole in one that involved the students measuring out the distance of the shot and seeing for themselves how great of an accomplishment the hole in one was. Danny is a great example of a young golfer with determination to continue playing the game and of course making more aces! Congrats to Danny from Foresite Sports, the leading provider of hole in one insurance.

Important Tips For Binding Hole In One Insurance

Before getting a quote online or giving us a call at Foresite Sports, there are three specific pieces of information that we will need to know in order to provide you with a price quote for hole in one insurance.  We will need to know the number of golfers (amateurs and pros), the yardage of the Grand Prize par-3 hole(s), and the value of the Grand Prize.  Once you are ready to bind coverage and complete the one page application form we will also need to know the date of the golf tournament, the hole number for the Grand Prize hole, the name of the tournament and the name of the golf course where the tournament will take place.

Even if you do not know the exact number of golfers when getting your initial price quote don’t worry.  Most of our clients either base their count on the number of golfers from their tournament the year before or they simply make a guesstimate based their invite list.  It is important to keep in mind that you can always change the number of golfer up until the morning of the tournament.  The change will need to be submitted in writing, either fax or email.  Once we receive your written policy change we will then issue a refund or bill you for the difference.

The yardage of the par-3 Grand Prize hole will depend on the value of the prize you are purchasing hole in one insurance for.  For prizes up to $49,999 the minimum yardage is 150 yards for men.  For prizes valued from $50,000-$99,999 the men’s tees will need to play 160 yards or longer.  Finally, for prizes value at $100,000 or greater the hole will need to be 165 yards or longer.  Ladies can play up to fifteen (15) yards closer than the men for all prize levels.

Finally and most importantly, your prize value.  For most of our new clients this is usually the most challenging decision.  But really this is the easiest choice since the Grand Prize is completely up to you.  We have many of prize suggestions on our website that will help get you headed in the right direction of picking the best grand prize for your golf tournament.  Whether you want to do cash, a new car, a motorcycle, or a golf vacation it’s completely up to you!

Hopefully these tips will get off to a great start in planning your next golf tournament but if you should have any questions do not hesitate to contact one of our knowledgeable tournament consultants.

How to Pick Your Hole In One Insurance Provider

Foresite Sports is hoping you will stay right here and invest in our hole in one insurance, but it is important to select the type of contest insurance that is right for your particular needs. For that reason, you may be considering other companies as well. Before you make a decision on who to work with for your hole in one insurance needs, take the following things in mind. Compare several companies to determine which is the best one for you.

  • Check out the Better Business Bureau for more information on the company. This is a good place to see what complaints have been filed against the company but also to see if the company has taken care of those complaints.
  • Next, check the insurance company’s underwriters. You want to ensure that the company has the type of underwriters that are financially stable. One way to know this is to check what their A.M. Best Co rating is. This is like a credit rating for the company.
  • In addition to this, learn about the company’s customer service. You want a company that is willing to work with you and to meet all of your goals including on time delivery and one that abides by the terms and conditions offered to you.

We feel that Foresite Sports can provide the best possible experience for you and stands behind its name. You will not find a better provider for the coverage you need for your next event!

How to Hit a Tee Shot… Right in the Hole Hopefully!

So you’re faced with a daunting tee shot on a tough par-3. What’s your strategy? How do you go about it? Can you do it? Well of course you can. Foresite Sports is here to give you some quick tips on how to hit drives with laser-like accuracy.

Before you even hit your drive take note of the tee box. A lot of courses today have tee boxes that aren’t directly aligned with the fairway. Some actually are angled so make sure that you take note of this. This first step is as important as hole-in-one insurance is to Foresite Sports. There’s no point in even teeing the ball up without going through this step. Next you must survey the hole. Which side of the hole is the best side to miss? Ask yourself what the wind is doing?

Now you must play to your strengths. If you like to fade or draw the ball there are some slight adjustments that you can make when playing in the wind. All you have to do is adjust accordingly. For example if you are a right hander playing in a right to left wind and you like to:

  1. draw the ball – make sure that you aim a little right and try not to release the club fully as the wind will exaggerate your normal ball flight and make the ball dive left. Feel as if you hold off your shot. That way the ball won’t be affected as much.
  2. fade the ball – make sure that you take extra club as your normal ball flight will fight the wind instead of riding it. Aim a touch right of your target but not as much as someone who draws the ball would. Your ball will start off straight , fade in the air , and then fall to the left as the wind gets a hold of it

Now if you’re left –handed you do the opposite. Hopefully if you execute these steps well you could win a hole in one prize, courtesy of Foresite Sports. We are the best out there when it comes to providing quality hole in one insurance so give us a try!
