Company History

WorldWide Hole ‘N One (www.hole-in-one.co.uk)  was founded in 1996 as sister company to US market leader American Hole ‘N One (www.ahno.net). After initially dealing with UK market WorldWide (based in St Albans, Herts.) has extended its client base around the globe to include Europe, Australasia and Asia.

The initial focus was in providing the industry leading hole-in-one insurance package to the corporate golf market. Over the first few years on course marketing developed into a whole range of promotional contestants. As WorldWide Special Risks our insured contests are now used by Retailers, Brands, Publishers, Event Organisers and many others. High value, exciting prizes (up to £10,000,000), underwritten by our prize insurance cover are used to help increase awareness, capture data, increase customers, enhance direct mail response and more.

In 2002 WorldWide Special Risks opened a London office, subsequently moving into the Lloyd’s insurance building in 2006. Focussing on Event Insurance solutions our London underwriting division supplies Cancellation and Abandonment, Non-Appearance, Property “All Risks” and Liability insurance to a range of occasions from private parties to major global events.
