Hole in One - Hole in Hell

There's yet another way to get in trouble in association management - the golf tournament hole-in-one. Colleague/friend asked I share this one. With golf tournament fundraisers, organizations can buy policy to give large prize for hole-in-one - such as new car or tens of thousands of dollars. However, policy likely has restrictions - such as minimum distance to the hole used for the prize, and ensuring correct monitoring. How many of us just hand that detail over to the golf pro without double-checking to ensure hole is far enough distance and that it's being monitored as policy/contract requires? What establishes who's responsible if procedure isn't followed correctly and prize isn't paid?

That hole-in-one can be expensive administrative mistake if not handled correctly.
