Here are the specifics:


The 15th Annual Achen-Gardner/Chandler Horizon Rotary Club Million Dollar Hole-In-One Shootout presented by Thorobred Chevrolet.  


The event is hosted by the Crowne Plaza San Marcos Golf Resort at One San Marcos Place in Chandler, located three blocks west of Arizona Ave. on Chandler Blvd. The event will take place on a specially designed hole built on the practice area of the San Marcos Golf Club.  The hole will be used exclusively for this event.


Three consecutive weekends over eight qualifying days, plus the finals:

● Saturday-Monday, February 16-18 (qualifying), 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. daily

● Friday-Sunday, February 22-24 (qualifying), 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. daily

● Friday and Saturday, Feb. 29 and March 1 (qualifying), 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. daily

● Sunday, March 2; women’s shootout, semi-finals and $1 Million Finals


Open to adult golfers of all ages who want to win fabulous prizes including a possible $1 million in cash. A total of 13 daily prizes will be awarded including rounds of golf, golf clubs, restaurant gift certificates and other great giveaways for holes in one and closest to the pin each day of qualifying and in each of three 3-hour sessions daily.


To help the Chandler Horizon Rotary Club raise money for local charities. In 2007, the event raised more than $40,000 for East Valley charities. 


Participants make a charitable donation of $1 per ball to try to get as close as possible to the hole from about 100 yards away in any of three qualifying sessions daily: 9 a.m.–noon; noon–3 p.m.; and 3-6 p.m. Anyone making a hole-in-one during any session automatically qualifies for the finals on March 2. If no holes-in-one are made during a session, the closest to the pin in that session will qualify for the semifinals. There is no limit to the number of qualifying tries a contestant can make and a prize is awarded for each session winner as well as the 10 closest shots of each day.

During the finals, the closest 20 shots from the eight days of qualifying will hit one shot each from 150 yards at 10 different pins, each of which carries with it a fantastic prize. These include the Grand Prize of $1 million; other cash prizes ranging from $10,000 to $25,000; and many others. There also is a women’s $10,000 shootout with the top 10 qualifiers participating. Anyone sinking a hole in one on any of the 10 holes during the finals will win the corresponding prize for that hole.
