NILES - Have you ever wondered how golf courses give away such big prizes at golf tournaments? You know, win a free car or $100,000 for a hole-in one. Well, your answer is right here.
CGA, Inc. has been providing hole-in-one coverage for golf tournaments since 1992. CGA's service allows sponsors the opportunity to offer larger prizes for a fraction of the price.
Most important, CGA takes pride in offering the most competitive rates along with the best package in the hole-in-one coverage business.
CGA provides coverage, which allows sponsors to offer the opportunity to win larger prizes for only a small portion of the prize value. CGA covers prizes of up to two million dollars. The promotions offered are unique and most can be customized for your organization.
Some of the options CGA offers are hole-in-one for a car, cash or boat, million dollar hole-in-one, putting contests and many more. For those lucky enough to get a hole-in-one, the prizes are very rewarding.
Just how often does CGA have to pay out for a hole-in-one? “One in 10,000 shots, or, one in 70 hole-in-one events,” Knepple said.
So, before you hold your next golf tournament, be sure to contact CGA.
Contracts must be secured five days prior to the tournament date to guarantee signs, and free shipping. CGA will accept last minute tournaments and provide signage, provided the contract holder provides a shipping number.
To get started, you must utilize a CGA application for a hole-in-one coverage quote(s), or email them regarding any other type of promotion.
To determine a quote, you must provide CGA with the number of participants (amateur or pro), the yardage of the Par 3, and the prize value.
There us a minimum fee of $250. Rates vary depending on the number of golfers, prize value and yardage of the hole for hole-in-one events. For anything other than hole-in-one, rates start at $500.
