A slightly unusual insurance dispute from America where a Charleston Golf Club insured against holes-in-one at a tournament in July.

They had offered spectators in their 18th hole grandstand payouts of $100 for the first hole-in-one during the tournament, $500 for a second and $1,000 for a third. Spectators were lucky enough to see two holes-in-one prompting a total payout of $192,000 to the fans. However, when the Club came to claim, the insurers refused to pay as the par 3 hole was supposed to be at least 170 yards long, but it was only 137 yards. Whoops!
