Fiesta Bowl Million Dollar Hole-In-One Approaching Final Sunday

Fiesta Bowl Million Dollar Hole-In-One Approaching Final SundayThe nation’s top Hole-in-One competition, the Fiesta Bowl Million Dollar Hole-in-One, is approaching the final shootout on Sunday, November 14th at Phoenix’s historic Arizona Biltmore Golf Club.

For just $1 a shot, thousands of golfers/ gamblers aim for an ace on a custom-built 125-yard hole. The top 20 finishers each day receive fabulous prizes, including PING irons, golf bags as well as certificates for complimentary foursomes at area golf courses, finest restaurants and resorts.

The top three daily finishers, including anyone who nails a hole-in-one, will advance to the finals for a shot at the $1 Million Dollar hole. A portion of the proceeds will benefit The 100 Club of Arizona, supporting families of police officers and firefighters when tragedy strikes. 

Event Highlights:

  • 22 Holes In One have been made through Day 8

  • On Day 7, ball sales were the highest since totals have been recorded. Undoubtedly, the sunny, 71 degree “chamber of commerce” day contributed to the bottom line.

  • Three golfers, Micheal Barter of Phoenix. Trey Martin of Scottsdale and 2004 event champion, David Reiter of Glendale each have 2 in the hole. Phoenix’s Michael McGlothin has one and narrowly missed number two when his shot stopped 2 feet ¾ inches shy of the cup.

  • In a classy gesture on Veteran’s Day, active-duty military as well as all veterans received two bags of balls for the price of one.

  • After an ace is recorded, golfers are mandated to take a provisional shot. The closest was by Martin at 6 feet 2.5 inches. The longest was by Scottsdale resident and Golfer’s Guide friend, Trent Longnecker. Trent’s shot was 174 feet 7.5 inches.

    Longnecker, a 4-handicap who plays out of FireRock Country Club in Fountain Hills and who has three on-course holes-in-one hit stated with a smile “After I made the hole in one, I had such gratitude toward the Fiesta Bowl Committee that I had to say “SHANK-YOU” very much on my provisional. The ball went straight right off the hosel and in the process, I may have set a Fiesta Bowl Hole-In-One record for years to come.”

  • Friday and Saturday, the event is open from 9 a.m. – 7 p.m. Please note that on Sunday, Nov. 14th, hours are condensed from 9 a.m. – Noon. After a short break and ceremony, the final will begin at 2 p.m.
