The Million Dollar Hole-in-One Shootout returns to Bluffton's Old South Golf Links this week looking for its first big winner.

Qualifying for Saturday's finals will be held Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Finals will be held Saturday starting at 6 p.m., when qualifiers will have a chance to hit a hole-in-one and win $1 million.

Participants can purchase bags of range balls during qualifying, with proceeds going to Bright Ideas, an educational grant program funding local innovative classroom projects.

Prizes will be awarded each day. Putting contests will be held for children and adults.

The first hole-in-one in the finals will also win a 2014 Ford Fiesta from O.C. Welch.
