Need to Cancel Your Hole In One Insurance?

Imagine having planned a big hole in one event and it rains. What can you do? This is one of the most common reasons that individuals need to reschedule or cancel their special event. We understand that. If you do need to do this, you can contact Foresite Sports through email or with a fax within a business day of your event and we will cancel or transfer your coverage to a new date..

What happens if you need to cancel your event altogether? The good news is that we understand that situations arise and therefore you can get a total refund for your tournament, minus Foresite Sports’s $40 cancellation fee.

What happens if the skies open in the middle of your event, leading to rain and the inability to continue your tournament. If this happens, you will need to let us know how many shots were taken at the target hole. Then, your refund will be prorated.

However, keep in mind that there is no fee for postponing your event, even if you do not yet know the new date for your event. Simply contact us and let us know what is happening and we will ensure that your event can continue according to your original goals. Even if circumstances are unique, such as the weather clears up but the putting contest is not possible, we will help you to reschedule your event so that your US Hole in One insurance protection remains in effect. We want to work with you to have a successful event and strive to do so.

Quick Facts About Hole In One Insurance – Part 1

Customer service comes first at Foresite Sports. Happy customers are customers who know what they are getting into and ultimately get what they signed up for. This is one of the reasons why Foresite Sports stands tall amongst its competitors .Here are some important things that all our valued customers should know:

  • Payment for hole in one prize coverage should be addressed to USHIO and postmarked prior to the day of the contest, or faxed to Foresite Sports with a valid Visa, MasterCard, or American Express prior to the start of the contest
  • If you choose mail over fax, we highly recommend that you use certified mail. It’s always wise to mail something that you can track
  • Take note that Insurance agents act exclusively on behalf of the applicant, and not Foresite Sports
  • Once we get your application, we at Foresite Sports will mail, fax or email written confirmation of your participation in our hole in one program (Certificate of Participation) based upon the submitted application and payment.
  • This Certificate of Participation will take the place of all prior agreements or  representations, whether written or oral, and contain the full agreement of both parties.
  • Next,  any changes after that must be approved  in writing by US Hole In One
  • Foresite Sports is free to use the Names and likenesses of the association member, acing golfer (winner), and hole sponsor without further compensation to the association member, winner or sponsor. For example, videos of our special hole-in-one winners are posted on YouTube
  • All witnesses have to be 18 years of age or older and chosen by the association member. For all prize limits, two (2) playing partners of the winner are required as witnesses along with the following:
  1. Prize limits of $2,000 to $59,999 need one non-event participant witness is required
  2. For prizes of $60,000 to $99,999, two non-event participant witnesses are required
  3. For prizes of $100,000 to $1,000,000, two non-event participant witnesses (one of which is a PGA Professional or Police Officer) are required as well as a continuous, unedited videotape shot from behind the green of all shots to win the prize. A videotape is also required, in addition to the witness requirements for all agreements in which both: the number of contestants is 24 or less AND the Prize Value is $25,000 or greater. We definitely want to make sure that no one tries to pull a fast one on us. If someone makes a hole in one, but the witness requirements aren’t met, Foresite Sports sadly does not have to pay the winner.

There are a couple more quick facts that we would like you to know and we will share them with you in part two of this blog segment. Till then we wish you the best both on and off the golf course.

Golf Tips for 2010

Foresite Sports would love to help you become a better golfer in 2010. There aren’t as many satisfying things as shooting lower scores and watching your handicap index fall through the floor.

For most people the short game is the most immediate pathway to a better golf game.  So, if you’ve been having problems in the bunkers this first tip from Foresite Sports will give you the skills to knock it close. First adopt an open stance. A 60 or 56 degree wedge should suffice. Next, make sure that you open up the face to the point where you could rest a glass of water on it. Now you’re ready to swing away. In your backswing feel like you cock your wrists abruptly. Halfway back you should form an L between your arms and the clubshaft. All you have to do from here is accelerate through the shot and watch the ball rise and land gently. There is one catch though. To get good at this shot you have to practice it.

Next up is a classic putting tip. Keeping your head and torso still when putting is really important. Every time that you move them just before you strike the ball, you increase your chances of yipping the putt and sadly missing it.

The last tip of course is to get hole-in-one insurance. Nothing makes a golf outing stand out more than the presence of attractive grand prizes at all the par3 holes. This gives more golfers the incentive to play in your event. We help give away a wide array of prizes so if you are thinking of giving away a custom prize, we can make it happen! So don’t hesitate to visit our website, www.foresitesports.com or to call us at 888-882-5440.
