Recently, my son got a hole in one. Somebody at the club said to write the ball manufacturer and they usually send some swag. In this case it's his favorite - Callaway Chrome Soft. He loves that ball. Anybody else familiar with the ole' hole-in-one letter? I've never gotten an ace....dangit...

When I got mine back in 2005 I wasn't sure what to do and the guys I was with said to contact the manufacture's of the clubs and ball used, maybe they would send you something.  I did that and received a bag tag from Titleist (used the 762 iron), a divot tool from Taylormade (used a Noodle ball cause it was in November!)  Then I also got a ball marker from the hole in one society for registering it.

It has never crossed my mind that manufacturers do this as I have never come close to a hole in one. I have holed out twice for eagle and once for birdie from 100 to 128 yards....maybe I should try that! I joke. If I ever do get lucky enough to make a HIO I hope I remember to try this.

I have a nice Wood Plaque from Callaway (CS ball) for my HIO. I also wrote Mizuno (irons) and they sent me a nice high end glove and a frameable certificate, which I framed.

The golf course sent me a plaque and they put a brass plate up on the HIO wall display with y name on it.

I got a nice certificate from the PGA that I framed for mine.  I have no idea if the pro at the course did it or I registered it with the PGA because it was 8 years ago

I happened to be using a Titleist DT solo when I luckily had a HIO.  Someone mentioned I should send the info to them.  Was nice to get a metal (bag tag?) and certificate.  

Even better was they sent me a free sleeve of Titleist Trusoft when they first came out.  Not so lucky with those.  Lost them in the water before long.

Got my first and only hole-in-one with a Precept Tour Premium (great ball back in it's day).  Wrote to Precept and they sent me a certificate and a dozen balls.

This thread makes me want a Hole in One bad. I would love me some manufacturer swag!

Ive never made one and before and, never really gave it much thought.  My closest to a Hole in One though was less than an inch.
Several of them less than 6 inches.

Titleist sent me a hole in one key chain years ago. Forgot to send in on subsequent aces. Saw this thread and contacted Srixon about a recent ace with irons and ball. Email reply said they would send out a certificate. The days of swag must be over. :)

I received a letter and bag tag from Titleist for my last one a few years ago.
I'm not suggesting we kill all the stupid people, I'm just suggesting we remove all the warning labels and let the situation resolve itself.
