Golf Ball Drop Rules

Prizes include Parking Spot, XBox, Chromebook, Big Air Passes and more

All Proceeds Benefit the Vista del Mar Elementary and Middle School

The Mako Masters Golf Ball Drop will take place on Friday, January 26th, 2018 at Talega Golf Course, weather and circumstances permitting. Participants may enter more than once. After purchase, participants will be provided access to see their golf ball number assignment. All purchased golf balls will be individually numbered based on the ticket number that corresponds with their individually numbered golf ball. Purchasers must be 21 years old or older at the time of purchase. All golf ball purchases are final and non-refundable. By entering the Golf Ball Drop, the purchaser acknowledges that he or she is aware of, and agrees to abide by, The Golf Ball Drop Rules. Odds of winning depend on the number of golf balls sold, as well as where they land when dropped.

In one, over the top-moment, hundreds of individually numbered golf balls will rain down, quickly filling the hole. The three participants whose numbered golf balls go into the hole or fall closest to the hole will win these prizes.

Winner Need Not Be Present To Win

If multiple balls go in the hole, the ball at the bottom of the hole will be determined the winner. If no ball goes in the hole, then the ball landing closest to the hole will be the winner. The next closest to the hole will be determined 2nd Place, the next 3rd and the next 4th.. The ball closest to the hole will be determined by measuring in a straight line from the center of the hole to the ball. Decisions by pre-selected Golf Ball Drop Judges will be final and binding. The winners will be announced at the awards banquet of the Mako Masters on January 26th, 2018. Winners not present will be notified by phone, mail or email based on contact information supplied. If a winner cannot be located or fails to claim prize within ten (10) days after notification, the prize will be forfeited and awarded to an alternate winner. Decisions of contest judges are final.
