Stock Yards Bank $1 Million Dollar Hole-in-One Golf Contest℠

The Kentucky Derby Festival recognizes the importance of public health and safety – it is always the Derby Festival’s top priority and we appreciate everything that is being done for all of us. We want to do our part as well, and with an abundance of caution, have decided to postpone the 2020 Kentucky Derby Festival until later in the year.

The schedule may look a little different as we move things into a new timeframe, but there will be a Thunder Over Louisville, a miniMarathon, a Pegasus Parade, and many other events in between. As you can imagine, there are a lot of moving parts, and once we get all the details finalized, we will release a new schedule.



Thursday, August 20 – Sunday, August 30, 2020*
10:00 AM – 8:30 PM

Sunday, August 30, 2020
10:00 AM – 5:00 PM
6:00 PM: Semi-Finals

Tuesday, September 1, 2020
6:00 PM: Finals at Hole #8, Seneca Golf Course

We keep trying to give the money away! In its 32nd year, the $1 million dollar prize is still up for grabs in the finals of the $1 Million Dollar Hole-In-One Golf Contest. Anyone from beginners to scratch golfers can take a shot. If no one gets the million, they can still walk away with a terrific First Prize, $5,000!

Preliminaries are held for 10 days. This year’s challenge begins Thursday, August 20 and runs through Sunday, August 30. The Hole-In-One is open daily. Each golf ball is only $1. Get 10 FREE golf balls with the purchase of a $7 Pegasus Pin at the event.


Each day, ten people will qualify to advance to the Semi-Finals. All Hole-In-One qualifiers will go directly to the Finals at Seneca Golf Course, Hole #8 on Tuesday, September 1. All others who qualified, will advance to the Semi-Finals and will be given 3 shots to try to proceed to the Finals. (Those who proceed to the Finals are those hitting closest to the hole, filling the remaining spaces of the 56 total Finalist positions.) There will be 56 positions available at the Finals, so there is a lot of opportunity. (Hold that thought: you don’t get the million unless a hole-in-one is made in the actual Finals…but not bad for a day’s work.) If there is not a hole-in-one at the Finals, the closest to the hole will receive $5,000. The qualifier shot is 100 yards for everyone. The Finals shot is 150 yards for men and 135 yards for women.
