Would you like to have a chance at making a million-dollar shot? All you have to do to become eligible is make an ace this week at a participating course and sign up for The Barclays Hole-in-One Challenge.

Anyone who has a documented hole-in-one (on a hole 125 yards or longer) through July 31 will be invited to take one shot at a shortened 18th hole at Bethpage Red following the second round of the Barclays at Bethpage Black Aug. 26. If that golfer makes an ace with that stroke, he or she will win $1 million.

The Long Island sites participating are all of the courses at both Bethpage and Eisenhower Parks, Cold Spring, Glen Oaks, Harbor Links, Laurel Links, Muttontown, North Fork, North Hills, North Shore, Old Westbury, Plandome, Smithtown Landing, Stonebridge, Swan Lake, the Vineyards and West Sayville.
