SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – In honor of Veterans Day, the Fiesta Bowl Million Dollar Hole-in-One presented by Fox Sports Arizona will offer a two-for-one special to all veterans and active-duty military.

On Thursday, Nov. 11, veterans and active-duty members will receive a free bag of 11 balls with the purchase of a bag, doubling their chances at a hole-in-one and a number of fabulous prizes.

“This is a great opportunity for us to thank the men and women who have served our country so valiantly,” said Hole-in-One Chairman Tim Brown.

The Hole-in-One, one of the nation’s top amateur hole-in-one tournaments, is currently running at the Arizona Biltmore Country Club in Phoenix until Nov. 14. For just $1 a shot, more than 1,000 golfers of varying skill levels aim for an ace on a 125-yard hole.

This year’s top three grand prizes are:

  • a one-year membership to Encanterra, a Trilogy Country Club, and a full set of PING clubs
  • a three night experience at the Fairmont St. Andrews in Scotland with a chance to play on the legendary Old Course at St. Andrews
  • a luxurious 10-day cruise for two on Holland America Line

The top 30 finishers each day receive fabulous prizes, including PING irons and golf bags, and complimentary foursomes at the Valley’s best golf courses and certificates to some of Arizona’s finest restaurants. The top three daily finishers, including anyone who nails a hole-in-one, advance to the finals for a shot at the $1 million hole. The finals will take place at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 14.

Daily rounds run from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and 9:00 a.m. to noon on Nov. 14. The final round will take place on Nov. 14 at 2:00 p.m.
