This 10 day hole-in-one contest is expected to draw more than 1,500 participants who will take shots at the green from 125-yards away for a chance to win hundreds of prizes.
Every shot landing on the green is a winner with special prizes such as restaurant, golf and entertainment gift certificates. There will also be daily prizes awarded to the top 10 closest shots to the pin each day.
Additionally, the top two shots each day will also qualify for the finals that are held on Sunday, October 26 at 6:30 p.m. Anyone who makes a hole-in-one during the finals will win $1,000,000.
If no aces are recorded during the finals, the person who lands their ball closest to the pin will win a trip for two to the Caribbean courtesy of American Airlines.
Proceeds will benefit the Valero Alamo Scholarship Program. This year the Valero Alamo Bowl will award a record 55 Bexar County high school students $7,500 scholarships bringing the bowl’s 15-year scholarship total to 452 students sharing $1.64 million.

About the Bowl
The Valero Alamo Bowl is an annual post-season collegiate game played in the 65,000 seat Alamodome in San Antonio. The game is annually broadcast on ESPN and features teams from the Big 12 and Pac-12 conferences.
From 2014-2019, six bowls will host the conference champions, at-large teams and semi-finals games as part of the new College Football Playoff. The Valero Alamo Bowl is now the #1 bowl outside of that structure and will feature the top available teams from the Big 12 and Pac-12 conferences.
Last year a standing room only crowd of 65,918 attended the Valero Alamo Bowl to watch Oregon’s win over Texas marking the game’s second highest attendance of all-time, third sellout in a row and the sixth capacity crowd in the last eight years.
This season’s Valero Alamo Bowl will kick off on Friday, January 2 at 5:45 p.m.
Tickets are now on sale at the Alamodome Southwest Box Office and online through alamobowl.com or Ticketmaster. To get up-to-the-minute information, follow the Valero Alamo Bowl on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter (@valeroalamobowl) or visit www.alamobowl.com.
