Question: What Is Golf Hole In One Insurance?

Hole in one insurance, which is a type of prize indemnification insurance, works just like any other kind of insurance policy, except that instead of insuring your property against damage, you are paying a premium to eliminate the risk of having to pay for a prize if someone makes a hole in one during your golf event.

How much does it cost to insure a hole in one?

Low-cost to insure

The premium is based on the value of the prize, the length of the hole and the number of golfers shooting at the hole during the event. For example, an average cost for an outing offering a $10,000 cash hole-in-one prize on a 165-yard hole for 100 golfers is approximately $225.
