The winning ace was fired by Nick Porter on the course’s par-3 second hole during the club’s annual member-guest tournament on Sept. 11. Porter and his playing partners were just the third group of the day to play the stout one-shotter, which was set up from the course’s 172-yard white tees.

“I’ve been at this a long time and seen plenty of hole-in-one opportunities to win something, but I’ve never seen a golfer make one,” said Hunting Creek Country Club General Manager Zeke Larson. “Perfect Golf Event could not have been more professional and efficient, and I wouldn’t think of utilizing anyone else for hole-in-one insurance.”

The hole-in-one contest was sponsored by Marine Sales and Service in Louisville, an 11-acre “on the water” dealership located on the Kentucky bank of the Ohio River. The sought-after hole-in-one prize was a brand new 2021 Regal 2300 high-performance runabout boat measuring 24-feet from bow to stern, featuring a 280-horsepower inboard-outboard Volvo engine.

“We’re elated for Nick and his family and congratulate Hunting Creek on a successful and exhilarating member-guest tournament,” said Bryan Arnett, sales and brokerage with Marine Sales and Service. “Partnering with Perfect Golf Event and knowing that our boat – Nick’s future prize – was insured gave us the utmost peace of mind while participating in this unforgettable experience.”

Hole-in-one insurance is purchased by golf courses and clubs to add excitement to their tournaments, increase player registration and sell multi-level sponsorships. Most successful events have between one and four hole-in-one contents available to participants. Perfect Golf Event offers tournament organizers a simple, reliable process for obtaining a quote for hole-on-one insurance, as well as a wide-selection of contests to choose from.

“Hole-in-one contests add short- and long-term value to golf tournaments and events, and insurance is an extremely affordable safeguard for golf courses, clubs and tournament sponsors,” said Perfect Golf Event Chief Operating Officer Paul Courter. “We’re thrilled for Hunting Creek Country Club, Marine Sales and Service, and Mr. Porter and his family.”
