Golf risk events such as the Hole In One, Putt Fore Cash and Million Dollar Shot are a great addition to any golf tournament. All of these events require a holed out shot or putt in order to win the associated prize. The Circle Shot risk event is a unique alternative because the ball simply has to get close to the hole to win the prize.
A cash prize is awarded if the ball simply comes to rest within three or six feet of the hole – no hole in one required!
PAYOUT: Choose from three prize options – $1,000 Cash if the ball comes to rest within 3 feet of the cup, $2,000 Cash if the ball comes to rest within 3 feet of the hole or $1,000 Cash if the ball comes to rest within 6 feet of the hole plus an additional $1,000 Cash if the ball comes to rest within 6 feet of the hole.
