SmartPin Technology Changes Par-3 Contests Forever!

The grand old game of golf will never be the same. SmartPin has arrived. Learn more!

September 1, 2021 the golf world was changed forever.  Daily SmartPin Golf Competitions on selected par-3 holes will soon be Nationwide. Ace Golf Technologies’ original vision of providing golfers with the opportunity to feel the thrill of victory by hitting that once in a lifetime shot and winning big money will become a reality.                                                                          

SmartPin is a patent pending, golf flagstick with a ‘brain’ that talks to the Internet. To activate SmartPin, a golfer clicks the SmartPin app on his cell phone. Cameras contained in SmartPin provide autonomous video evidence of prize-winning golf shots.

Ace Golf Technologies LLC, developers of SmartPin, links a network of participating SmartPin golf course partners where individual golfers may compete with the click of an app. The company envisions millions of golfers, scattered across America and around the world, competing daily for major prizes.

SmartPin’s Daily Golf Competitions separate themselves from all other Hole-In-One contests by offering three ways to win. Golfer who choose to participate in the daily contest pay a $5 entry fee for each SmartPin Shot . The entry fees is charged to the golfer’s credit card or in the pro shop. In some cases the entry fee is included in the greens fee paid by the golfer. The $5 entry fee provides Golfers three different ways to win SmartPin games.

Before a golfer can play the SmartPin Games he or she must put the SmartPin App on their cell phone. There are two ways to get the app. Golfers may test SmartPin to 612-453-0350 then click the link. Or the QR code below.

Golfers, be sure to put the app on the home page of your cell phone. (All personal and credit card information is confidential and will never be shared.) Prior to the shot click the app select the golf course and start the timer.

Hit It To Gimme Distance

SmartPin is the only video golf competition that pays a prize for hitting a golf ball within three feet of the hole on the SmartPin par-3 hole. Every golfer has played in tournaments and league events where a prize is given for the ball hit closest to the hole on a par-3 hole. The Gimme Game is similar. 

With the Gimme Game every winning shot (within three feet of hole) recorded with the SmartPin app earns a part of the Daily SmartPin Gimme Game Jackpot. Every shot! Every time! Let that sink in. Golfers have a realistic chance to win every time they play the SmartPin hole on any SmartPin golf course. 

Each golfer who wins the Gimme Game receives a gift certificate from Ace Golf Technologies payable in the pro shop at the golf course where the Gimme was scored. In addition to the local pro shop certificate, every Gimme Game receives a share of the Daily Gimme Game Jackpot. If he or she hits the only Gimme, they will receive the entire Jackpot. If there are multiple winners, each Gimme Game winner receives his or her appropriate share. Each winner receives a free personalized souvenir video of their winning shot.

We all know that videos are easily shared. With the video of the winning shot, a golfer in Minnesota may challenge with a golfer in Florida. Just a bet between two golfers. Or a group of golfers in different locations, or the same location, with different tee times could have a bet on hitting a golf ball within ‘Gimme’ distance. The options for betting with the videos are endless.

Make A Hole-In-One

A Hole-In-One is much more rare than hitting it to Gimme distance. Therefore, the payout for a Hole-In-One is much larger. The National SmartPin has the only Hole-In-One contest with a progressive jackpot. The SmartPin National Progressive Hole-In-One Jackpot (starting at $10,000) works as follows: Each day that a Hole-In-One is not made, the jackpot for tomorrow’s game grows by a fixed amount. The jackpot grows that fixed amount each day until a Hole-In-One is made. The daily Hole-In-One Jackpot will always be $10,000 or more. As the number of SmartPin partner golf courses increase, the base jackpot will increase.   Hole-In-One Jackpots could start at $30,000 to $50,000 within a year.
