The Seven Dwarfs of Golf

Everyone except for Mulligan has a shot at hitting a hole in one. Our golf contests provide great excitement for all types of golfers at all levels – even Slicey, Trappy, Bogey, Toppy, Hooky and ThreePutty. But you don’t get to take a Mulligan when a Big Bonus Prize is on the line. Each golfer gets one shot at the car, the cash, or the exotic vacation package.

When Slicey bounces his shot off a tree and into the hole, Great Shot Golf’s hole in one coverage handles the prize details so you don’t have to pay out of pocket.

This is a video from an awesome and unique Big Bonus Contest we ran for Trading Advantage.


The Prize: $1,000 cash per contestant for the 20 contestants whose guess is closest to closing values of the Dow Jones Industrial Cash Average on 10/10/2014. There is only one guess per person for each date. If duplicate guesses result in more than twenty who might qualify for the $1,000.00 prize, the 20 winners will be selected based on the earliest entry dates and times.

Those 20 contestants will qualify for the second prize of $1,000,000. In order to win, the contestant must have guessed the exact closing value of the Dow Jones Industrial Cash Average on 11/10/2014 to the 2nd decimal place.  There are no guaranteed winners for the $1,000,000 prizes. If multiple contestants guess the value correctly, each contestant of the 20 finalists who guessed the correct value will win $1,000.000.
