Ending a golf tournament has never been the same since shootout competitions surfaced at high end golf events. Shootout competitions are the new favorite event at golf tournaments both large and small. Additionally, shootouts are a perfect sponsorship opportunity.

Keep reading to find out how to run the perfect shootout competition.


What’s Special About the Shootout?

The Shootout competition is iconic because there can be much larger prizes offered compared to traditional hole-in-one contests. Prize values can be as high as $1,000,000! Additionally, shootouts can take place in a populated spot, so most golfers at the tournament can spectate. If you need an activity to take place while everyone is winding down and waiting for the awards ceremony or dinner, a Shootout competition may be your answer.

How Does A Shootout Work?

Shootouts can be customized, which is a benefit to making the event specific for the course and goals of the sponsors. However, generally a shootout works by taking one to four golfers back to the 9th or 18th fairway after the golfing has ended to accommodate spectators. There are options on how these one to four golfers are chosen. They may be chosen at random via lottery tickets, or you can choose “closest to the pin” contest winners. Really, the options for who participates, and where the contest is held is up to you!

Once the golfers have been selected, each golfer will have the chance to make a hole-in-one from the spot you choose. For our packages, the yardage must be at least 165 yards out. If the golfer makes the hole in one, they could win anywhere from $50,000 to $1,000,000! With stakes this high, the golfers and spectators will be excited about supporting the potential winners and being a part of the day.
