Hole In One Insurance & Junior Golfers

With the growing popularity of the game, and Tiger Woods' emergence as a sporting icon, more and more golf outings these days are finding themselves with junior golfers participating in their events. Consequently, a question we are frequently asked is whether or not junior golfers are allowed to compete in hole in one contests for which hole in one insurance was purchased.

The simple answer is yes, anyone, no matter their age, can compete for prizes covered by hole in one insurance. However, there are two important things to keep in mind when permitting junior golfers to compete for prizes. First of all, they must play from the same tee box as their peers. That means all males must play from the mens' tee and all females must play from the ladies' tee. No exceptions. (Coincidentally, the same rule applies to seniors.) Secondly, should a junior golfer successfully make a hole in one during your event and choose to claim their prize, they, like everyone else, will be responsible for paying taxes on their winnings. Simply because they are a minor does not exclude them from paying Uncle Sam his due share.
