Louisville, KY. – 56 golfers will take a swing at $1 million in today’s Finals for the Stock Yards Bank Kentucky Derby Festival $1 Million Dollar Hole-In-One Golf Contest. The Finals begin at 6 p.m. tonight (Tuesday, April 28) at Seneca Golf Course, Hole #8.
Each Finalist gets one shot at the green, set up 150 yards away (135 yards for women finalists). If no finalist hits a hole in one, the participant hitting the ball closest to the pin will win $5,000. The Finals competition is exciting and free for spectators.
In 2014, John Cook of Louisville came closest to the pin, hitting his tee shot 3 feet and half an inch from the cup. There has been no million dollar winner in the event’s 25-year history.
