Anyone Ever Win A HUGE Prize At A Golf Outing?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

I almost did today...a new Ford F-150. Was playing with a vendor and two clients in a local charity golf outing today. On two of the holes they were giving away vehicles. Last hole of the day for us, 181 yard Par 3. Hit a beautiful 6 iron. Balls hits about 2' right in front of the cup, take a bounce dead square into the flag stick and stops with the front edge of the ball hanging over the lip. That close to a $40k+ vehicle...instead I received $100 Best Buy gift card for closest to the pind2_doh.gifa3_biggrin.gif

A bunch of Pampered Chef stuff.  I brought it home and told my wife and kids I won it golfing...at the raffle after the round.  Kids were still impressed but wife continues to mocks me.  It had to be about $150 worth of stuff.  I may even use the cute apron when I am grilling.

At an outing in the mid 80's, I had $5 left in my pocket after seeming to be the one buying all the drinks. Raffle was $5 a ticket. decisions, decisions.... I bought the ticket and won a set of Hogan Edge Irons, 3-SW. I was pretty chuffed to say the least. After coming just out of the prizes in the scramble to a couple of groups with at least 2 scratcher's each with our group of ragtag hackers, this made the day. I didn't need money after that, everyone was buying ME the drinks!

I haven't but a company I used to work for had a guy win $10k in their tournament.   It was one of those hole in one deals.

 

Nice prize but the jerk stiffed us on the entry fee!

I didn't, but my dad got his first hole in one ever in a golf tourney and it just so happened to be on the win-a-car hole! He ended up taking the cash payout since they already had enough cars. I think it ended up being about $35k. Must be nice!!

I had the exact thing happen to me about 10years ago.  It was a scramble that I was playing in for my company. It was 182 yard par 3 and I hit a 4i (my distance was shorter back then) and it was a baby cut.  It actually landed on the very front of the green but took a generous bounce , rolled up to the hole with some speed, hit the stick, and came out to about 6 feet or so.  I didn't even get closest to the pin, but the hole in one would have netted me a Camaro Z28 convertible.

closest I came was 2 feet and i won an 80 dollar putter.  I've never played for many "hole in one" prizes..especially not cars lol!

I played in a 2-man scramble tournament with my dad, and the prizes were as follows.  4th place: A pair of hybrids, 3rd place: a pair of new bags, 2nd place: a pair of new drivers, and 1st place: a whole mess of Chicago Cubs merchandise... My dad and I won the tournament, but I am a Chicago White Sox fan... I couldn't believe it.  I was happy to have won, but I wasn't too excited about the prizes.

I won a raffle in a golf tournament for a round trip to Hong Kong first class for two, estimated cost was $6,000 - $8,000.

i havent been in enough scrambles to have a chance to win anything yet but my dad won a Ping staff bag a couple years ago for longest putt. He had me sell it for him on ebay, ended up selling for a few hundred

I made my first (hopefully not last) career ace in April of 2010.  I was speaking to my wife about it a few days before and I said that I hoped when and if I finally made a hole-in-one, that I was playing a casual round and that I wasn't playing in the club I belong to because I didn't want the $500+ bar tab afterwards.  At the time, I was unemployed... and even though I wasn't broke... I didn't necessarily have a couple hundred dollars laying around to spend on alcohol.

 

Well... as luck would have it, that following Sunday... I jarred a pitching wedge from 115 yards on the 12th hole of my second favorite course in New Jersey.  Wooohoo!  Oh, sh**!  I literally had $20 in my pocket and didn't bring any of my credit cards.

 

The club I play with has a closest to the pin prize for each par 3 played... but I wasn't sure how it would work since, I mean... I DID just make a hole-in-one.  Well... come to find out, I won the prize for that hole.  A whopping... ready for this... $40!!!

 

Luckily, it was a crappy weather day and people had left the club house.  I ended up spending about $50 on drinks... which didn't hurt me.  But, I was worried about it over the course of the remaining 6 holes!

 

So... yeah, largest prize I've won is $40... twice.  Once for an ace!

my dad and i won $300 total for first place in our flight in a local scramble tournament a couple of years ago (which we had to win in a sudden death three-way playoff).  my dad insisted i take $200 of it since i made about 2/3 of the shots we played, so after the tournament fee of $50, i pocketed $150.  also won a really nice callaway golf bag in a post-tournament drawing five years ago that i still use today.
