Fun Types of Hole-in-One Competitions to Add to Your Next Event
Golfing events are always more exciting when there are multiple ways for participants to win prizes. A hole in-one competition is always a big hit. It's not as easy to make a hole in one. The odds are low for even a seasoned pro to score the ace.
According to the National Hole-in-One Registry, the odds of the average golfer making a hole-in-one are 12,500 to 1. Broken down even further, here are the odds of:
- Tour player making an ace: 3,000 to 1
- Low-handicapper making an ace: 5,000 to 1
- Two players from the same foursome acing the same hole: 17 million to 1"
Hole-in-One Events to Challenge and Excite at Your Next Event
To bring more excitement and ways for your participants to leave with a prize, you can sweeten the pot by adding more competitions with additional rewards that will add to the excitement of your tournament.
Putt for a Hole in One
A putting contest is a fun way to bring more exciting competition to your golfing event. While the odds may not be as high as a hole in one, the pressure is on, and reading the green is a skill that is vital for making that winning put.
One way you can add excitement for your attendees is by holding a putting contest, that is open to the crowd. Charging an entry fee to take that one shot is a great way to bring money in for your cause.
Chip for a Hole in One
Another hole in one competition that can raise the excitement is to see who can chip their way out of the bunker. Getting the ball out of the sand trap can be a challenge for even the best golfers. A prize is a great way to encourage fun competition and help golfers get out of a cat box.
Closest to the Pin in One Shot
With the odds for anyone making a hole in one shot, a prize for the closest to the pin is the perfect way to guarantee a prize for one lucky golfing participant, who will walk away, ready to return to hold his winner's status. The more the chances of winning, the more participants will want to play.
Up the Game with a Par Three Challenge
With a Par Three Challenge, you create even more anticipation, waiting for the final put on the last par-3 hole. The golfer who makes the lowest score of all the par-3 holes is another winner. If the winner happens to have also won the hole-in-one challenge, there will be one happy golfer. You can imagine the celebration in the watering hole.
Reward the Longest Drive
We know that it's unlikely that someone makes the hole in one, but someone will have the longest drive. It's a simple competition that adds big excitement to the fairway, especially when someone makes a drive that no other golfer comes close to beating. In the world of golf, the power and the accuracy behind the driving shot is something every golfer wants to achieve.
