NHIO Provides $20 Million in Cash & Prizes for New England PGA Event
Dubbed the “Greatest Day In Golf,” the BENRUS Open is a New England PGA conducted event featuring cash and prizes valued at over $20 million. This prestigious, high-stakes event draws both amateur and professional golfers from far and wide.
Unlike most tournaments, the BENRUS Open is complex event to provide prize coverage for, due to the number of par three holes and mix of both pro and amateur players. Given the complexity, number and amounts of the prize packages, the event organizers needed hole-in-one and other prize coverage they could count on along with industry event expertise to select prize packages that would draw a crowd.
“The BENRUS Open is a huge undertaking for our course,” comments Troy Pare, PGA Director of Operations at The Preserve at Boulder Hills. “We needed a coverage provider with whom we had complete confidence that they would be a reliable and accessible business partner in this event.”
Pare tapped Nationwide Hole In One to provide the hole-in-one coverage for the event which features three qualifying rounds as well as a final event, each offering multiple opportunities for golfers to win $1 million for scoring a hole-in-one.
Nationwide Hole In One is proud to be entrusted with such a distinguished, high-stakes event. It has been a pleasure for our team to work with the creators of the BENRUS Open to create such an exciting and innovative prize package. We look forward to the BENRUS Open events as well as assisting with other events at The Preserve in the future.
The BENRUS Open will be held on June 18, 2015, with multiple qualifying rounds in May that will also feature prize winning opportunities. In addition to the $1 million hole-in-one prizes, multiple other prize winning opportunities are available including:
- $10,000 per hole-in-one during qualifying rounds
- $100,000 stroke play purse
- Four BMW hole-in-one car giveaways
- Hole-in-one prize trip to Bermuda
