Bowling Promotions

Company holiday parties are right around the corner so keep in mind that running a contest with Foresite Sports is a great way to give back to your employees. Bowling alley’s are at the top of companies lists for company party locations, they have a run atmosphere and offer the appropriate amount of space to have a great time whether you bowl or not! Bowling is also a great sport just to have fun with, when you go bowling you will have employees with all levels of skill which only adds to the fun of it!

Foresite Sports has two bowling promotions that are perfect to liven up any company bowling party. The contests are tasks that any one would be familiar with, the 7-10 split and the perfect game. Depending on how many people you want to participate in the promotion either can be catered to you needs. The 7-10 split has a little better odds, the best way to run this contest is to select a few employees out of the group to participate. A great way to select is to take the top performers from the past year, for example take the top 2 people from each of your 5 divisions allowing 10 total contestants. Between rounds take those ten people to one lane and see if they can make a 7-10 split with their co-workers cheering them on! The second promotion the perfect game is a little tougher however that does mean that it is perfect for everyone at your party to participate. This promotion would be done during your designated time on the lanes so no extra time is needed. This keeps a good competitive spirit among you co- workers while still having them cheer on one another to bowl at strike!

Hole In One Insurance Witness Requirements:

After purchasing a hole in one insurance, putting insurance, or shootout insurance, making sure you know the witness requirements for each of the contests is an important factor to making your hole in one insurance policy a success! It is very important as a tournament organizer to read and understand all the terms and condition because they will vary between the different contests.

The hole in one insurance witness requirements are dependent on the prize value you are insuring. For most prizes (under $60,000) you will need to have one person who will be stationed at the hole who is over the age of 18 and not playing in the tournament. This person needs to be stationed so they can clearly see the players teeing off and the ball going in the hole. For prize values between $60,000 and $100,000, the requirement increases to two non playing individuals and for anything over $100,000, two non playing individuals are required one being a pro or a police officer. At this prize level all shots will also have to be videotaped.

For a putting contest no matter what prize value you are giving away, it must be videotaped. The video must include the measurement of the putt as well as the person taking it. In addition to the videotape you are required to have one additional witness for prize vales up to $10,000 and two witnesses for any value over that. Shootout contest also always have to be videotaped, this videotape works best set up behind the hole so you can get the golfer and green in the same shot. Since shootouts are typically done with high prize values over $100,000, they also need two people to witness, one being the pro or police officer. Please review all terms and conditions before running any of the contests.

Free Golf Club Offer

When you purchase hole in one prize insurance from Foresite Sports you will receive a gift certificate to redeem for a free golf club for each and every golfer in your tournament.  So many of our clients think this is too good to be true and ask us if there is a catch.  Nope, no catch, just a free golf club.

Each golfer will have their choice of a 19-Degree Hybrid Club or 60-Degree Lob Wedge exclusively from Warrior Custom Golf.  The golfers will be responsible for paying the shipping and handling for the club that they choose.  The shipping however is under $25 on each of the clubs.  This year we also started the offer that golfers can get both of the clubs if they so choose and the shipping will then be $29.95.  This is a great way to try out a new club without having to spend a bunch of money.  You  can either hand out the golf club gift certificates at registration when everyone comes to check in or better yet you can use them as an extra bonus to put in your goodie bags.

When you call Foresite Sports to get a price quote one of our tournament consultants will email the information to you along with the information for the free golf club offer.  You will then be able to go online and redeem your coupon right away!  We really suggest that our tournament organizers do this so that they can have one or both of the clubs at the course on the day of the tournament.  Not only can the golfers have a hands-on sample of the club they can get for free, you can also use the club(s) as a prize for contests that you are running that day.

Staying Warm in the Winter Months of Golf Season!

Not all golfers have the luxury of playing golf year round, most golfers enjoy the spring, summer and fall months and play a round or two every weekend however once late November rolls around, the golf course is off limits! Here are some tips on how to stay warm if you are going to venture out into the cold and how to keep active with your golf game even if its not on the links.

If you have a golfer that is restricted by climate and can not play every weekend in the winter months, make sure they are ready to hit the links as soon as possible with some cold gear. Staying warm on the golf course is all about layers, start with some type of compression long sleeved as a base layer, add a nice golf polo, short or long sleeve in their favorite color and as the top layer consider investing in a thermal jacket. With these layers you golfer will be able to hit the course as soon as the snow is cleared and will stay warm the whole round!

If the weather is too unbearable to even consider playing outside, a great alternative is the indoor training methods. Many golf retail stores will sell a target pop up net and light weight golf balls perfect to set up in a basement to extra room. Also turf putting greens help any golfer perfect their short game when they are unable to get to the course. If you want to go all out and practice like the pro’s, buy a software system that will allow you to play virtual golf, right inside your own home! The golf simulators come with software, mats and a projection screen that will make you feel like you are in sunnyCaliforniaplaying the best course in the country.
