On Tuesday June 26th, pro snowboarder, Eero Niemela of Cardiff-by-the Sea, California, hit a hole in one worth $25,000 cash paid for by hole in one insurance provider US Hole In One.

According to Brucher, “Hole In One insurance was a totally new thing to me but I was so happy to work with US Hole In One. I can’t believe we had a winner at my very first charity tournament but I can’t wait to build an awesome relationship with US Hole In One. They really helped make the tournament stand out from the rest. All of the celebrities that attended this tournament wee really stoked to hear about the concept of hole in one insurance too. We will be purchasing coverage from US Hole in One for many years to come!”

Hole in one insurance is very affordable and it really helps to enhance the tournament. The added incentive of taking home a big prize definitely encourages golfers to sign up and donate even more to the cause at hand. Securing prize coverage is as simple as choosing a prize, telling us the number of golfers at your event, and designating which par 3 hole you'll hold the contest on”.

Those bonus prizes are a set of Callaway golf clubs, airline tickets for two anywhere in the continental United States and a Sharp LCD television.
