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.

West Virginia Golf Course For Sale: Considered Birthplace for American Golf

In Charleston,West Virginia, a golf course called Oakhurst Links has been put on the market. This course is considered the birthplace of American golf, due to its long history and the fact that you can still find sheep roaming the fairways from time to time. The first competition to take place at the golf course was in 1884. And, the owner, who has owned and run the course for the last 50 years, says it is time for someone else to manage it.

The golf course is only nine holes. There is also an onsite museum at the course. The course is now on the market for $4.5 million. The goal is for a new owner to be found who will continue to maintain the course as it is or improve it. The owner, Lewis Keller is 86 and is the self proclaimed “custodian” of the course.

The course is important, and as such as is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Tournaments were held in the early portion of the summer, but the course is no longer open to the public. The property has only been on the market for a few months but the goal is to preserve the history of the facility so that future generations can enjoy the very foundation of golf in the country.

In addition, that is just what happens when one plays there. When you do, you are required to use replica hickory clubs and you have to hit gutta percha balls that are molded from sap of the sapodilla tree. To make a tee, you need to form them, by hand, from a mound of wet sand. There are no electric carts on the course either. In addition, as mentioned, you may even see a herd of sheep crossing the fairway from time to time.

What’s the Most Important Club in Your Bag?

Haven’t you always wondered what the most valuable club in your bag is? David Dusek, a writer for Golf.com, took the initiative by e-mailing several GOLF Magazine Top 100 Teachers and asking them the following question: What is the most important/valuable club in a weekend player’s bag? We are going to share some of their responses:

Brian Mogg, coach of Y.E. Yang and director of the Brian Mogg Performance Center at Golden Bear Golf Club at Keene‘s Point in Windermere, Fla. wrote:

“The putter is the most important/valuable club in the bag. However, the actual cost to the manufacturer to build a putter is much less than a large-headed driver with a graphite shaft. Your putter is vital and important and worth every penny if it works, but proportional to what it costs to make it should also be looked at.  This is why $250 seems high-priced for a putter.”

Mike Bender, coach of Zach Johnson and master instructor at the Mike Bender Golf Academy at Timacuan Golf Club in Lake Mary, Fla. says:

“Without a doubt, the most important club in the bag is the driver.  Have you ever heard of a golfer incurring a penalty on a putter? If the average amateur golfer hit to his typical distance, but you put him in the middle of every fairway, he’d better his handicap by a mile. When I was playing the
PGA Tour, officials had just started to keep detailed stats, and the No. 1 putter was Morris Hatalsky. For being the best putter, he was nowhere near the top of the money list. But guys like Greg Norman, Tom Kite, Bruce Litsky, Nick Faldo, and Mark O’Meara were, and none of them could be considered great putter like Ben Crenshaw, Lorin Roberts and Brad Faxon.”

However, the responsibility of this decision lies on you. You have to be objective in order to look at the areas that truly need improvement. At Foresite Sports being objective is one of our strategies and it has allowed us to be successful. Let us help you by providing you with quality hole-in-one insurance. For more information you can call us at 888 882 5440.

Golf Facts Revealed

It’s your friendly hole in one insurance company coming to you from Bryn Mawr, PA. If you don’t know who we are, we’re Foresite Sports. We strive to continually provide our customers with quality hole in one insurance coverage which also happens to be affordable. We’ve been doing this for years and we won’t stop. Now onto the fun stuff. In this blog segment we will hit you with some interesting golf facts.

Ok lets set it off with the first fact. Did you know that the World’s Longest Golf Course is the International Golf Club in Massachusetts, a long par 77,  8325-yards, from the tiger tees. Now that sounds like a long round of golf!

Next, did you know that the Longest Hole in the World is the 7th hole (par 7) of the Sano Course at the Satsuki Golf Club in Japan.  It measures a whopping 909 yards. Love to see Bubba Watson take that big guy on.

Did you know that the World’s Largest Bunker is Hell’s Half Acre on the 585-yard 7th hole of the Pine Valley Course in New Jersey.

This next fact will definitely turn some heads. A truly interesting gentleman by the name of  Floyd Satterlee Rood used the United States as a golf course, when he played from the Pacific to the Atlantic from September 14, 1963, to October 3, 1964, in 114,737 strokes.  He lost 3,511 balls on the 3,397.7 mile trail.

This should make you wonder where/how these people come up with these ideas. If it doesn’t then this next fact should: the Lowest Recorded Score for throwing a golf ball around 18 holes (more than 6,000 yards) is 82 by Joe Flynn, ages 21, at the 6,228-yard Port Royal Course in Bermuda on March 27, 1975.

Golfers have done a lot of cool things in the past and the future of the game looks good. Just remember that if you need premier hole in one insurance all you have to do is call 888 882 5440 or visit our website: www.foresitesports.com.

Short Game Help

Here’s the scenario: you’ve missed the green on a par 3 and there is a high bunker between your ball and the hole. What’s even worse is that the green slopes downwards towards the hole. You’re not having a nightmare and you’re not about to wake up from it because this is reality. Even though this shot is intimidating it is way easier than getting a hole in one.  With a little practice and correct technique you’ll be on your way to becoming a short-game maestro.

So how exactly do you play this shot? What we want to accomplish is a high floating shot that lands a couple of feet on the green and trickles towards the hole. First you set up with an open stance and open the clubface as far as you can. Try to imagine a glass of water resting on your 60 degree wedge’s club face. Also if you don’t have a 60 degree wedge make sure you get one. Just like you need a little luck to make a hole-in-one, you need a 60 degree wedge to have a truly versatile short game.

Once you adopt an open stance with an open face you should cock your wrists in your takeaway. On your downswing the key is to swing on your feet line. Also make sure that you accelerate through the shot as the ball wont travel far. Swing to a full finish and watch your ball rise into the air and land as softly as a feather. Hopefully you’ll save your par or even sneak in a birdie. Till then make sure that outings at your golf club have hole-in-one insurance.  Hole-in-one insurance makes playing par 3s worthwhile. All holes-in-one are rewarded so everyone’s happy at the end of the day. Foresite Sports is here to make your day brighter. Call 888 882 5440 to find out more. You won’t regret it.

Foresite Sports’ Tips for Great Golf

Foresite Sports is a premier supplier of hole-in-one and golf contest insurance and is located in Bryn Mawr, PA if you ever decide to visit us. We’ve made a lot of customers happy and we intend to keep doing so. This wouldn’t be possible if we didn’t have a passion for what we do, as well as for the game of golf. This time around we are going to share some tips that should help you play your best golf ever. Hopefully that round will include a hole-in-one, but maybe that a bit too much to hope for.

Well, our first tip is to honestly assess your strengths and weaknesses. The key is to play to your strengths. If you don’t hit the ball far it might not be a good idea to try and carry a ball 265 yards over a lake. Instead, lay up! If you have a favorite yardage, be it 150 yards or 100 yards, try to leave that yardage into greens as many times as you can. If you really want to be a complete player, then we encourage you to try and turn your weaknesses into your future strengths. This sounds simple and you can call us “captain obvious” but this is a lot harder than you may think.

Next, make sure that you spice up your short game. There’s no point in hitting it great off of the tee, unless you can finish it off. “Drive for show and putt for a lot of dough.” This is one of golf’s most abused clichés, but no matter how annoying it gets, it is true!

The last tip is the hardest to do. Control your emotions! Don’t get too down or even too up. Overexcitement can be as defeating as anger or frustration. This allows you to make solid decisions in the 4 or so hours that you spend on the course.

So that’s it for this time. Lastly, Foresite Sports is the best when it comes to hole-in-one insurance. Call us at 888-882-5440 to find out why.

Careers Are On The Line At This Year’s PGA School

For aspiring professional golfers who want to get onto the PGA Tour, this is a very important time. The final stage of tour school is being played and only 25 golfers will advance onto the PGA Tour, whilst the others will have to settle for the Nationwide Tour. The road here has been tough as there are at least two stages before the third and final stage of tour school. Professional golfers without any sort of status, have to go through a prequalification stage. So it’s pretty much dog-eat –dog and there is no insurance on anything.

So the feeling of making a hole-in-one would be similar to making it onto the PGA Tour for these golfers. What’s even more interesting is that David Duval, a former world number one golfer is participating in the final round. He is the first former number one player to do so, which shows how much his game slumped but also how good these golfers really are. US Hole In One definitely agrees that there is no insurance or guarantee on making it through tour school. These golfers have to play well and earn their way through.

However, Foresite Sports provides some insurance of its own, as most of you already know. Foresite Sports specializes in hole in one insurance and that is definitely a guaranteed service. So, if a person makes a hole-in-one on an insured hole they could win big. Really big! We’ve helped give away cars, cash prizes, vacation trips and more. Therefore, if you know the tournament director at your golf club, or even better, if you are the tournament director then you have come to the right place. We welcome you and would like to let you know that we not only offer the best hole-in-one coverage but it is really affordable. On top of that you can take a look at the golf outing services that we provide. These services can be viewed on our website (www.foresitesports.com) or you could call us directly at 888 882 5440.

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.
