Bring Your "A" Game for a Successful Golf Tournament

​BRINGING YOU’RE "A" GAME
The Best Golf Tournament Possible
 
We have had the opportunity to work with and talk to thousands of tournaments throughout the US over the past 15 years. We have found that the average tournament only nets $5000, but is that the only determining factor in judging a golf event? Is it all about the money or is it about experience? Golfers are the real deciding factor. Do golfers enjoy your event and do they keep coming back? That is the big question.
 
WHAT DETERMINES A GREAT GOLF TOURNAMENT?
To determine what is a great golf tournament we have to ask ourselves several questions: Did the golfers have a great time? Will they be back next year? Do they tell others about their experience? If we can answer these questions we will know whether we have a great event or not.
 
After talking with many golfers and tournament organizers we have found that what they want is a great golf tournament. The following is what golfers are looking for in a great even:
 
WHAT ARE GOLFERS LOOKING FOR?
 
GREAT GOLF COURSE
They want a golf course in great condition. One that is not too difficult and they can play well. Staff that is friendly and helpful. A 4 to 5 hour round, with a fore caddy if possible.  
 
GREAT GIFTS AND PRIZES
A quality goodie bag or player gift package that might include a golf shirt, hat, balls, glove and towel. Gifts that they can use and remind them of your event and all golfers want to walk away with something.
 
TO BE A WINNER
Winners come back. Golfers love to win. Make sure that everyone is a winner, whether that is 1st, 2nd or 3rd or in an on-course game or contest such as; Closest to the pin, long drive or putting contest.  
 
GREAT FOOD AND BEVERAGE
Golfers love to eat. Spend a little more on food and it will go a long way. They will talk about the food. Pay for their drinks, it makes a great impression. 
 
 
A NETWORKING OPPORTUNITY
Golfers want to take the day off of work, play golf and call it work. Promote the event as a way to meet other people in business. Insure that during the day everyone gets a chance to meet one another. Try a mixer during the awards ceremony. 
  
GREAT EXPERIENCE
A great experience includes the whole day. Staring with a smooth registration process, clear instructions, time to warm up, stretch, talk with others.  A clear scoring process and not waiting too long to get the results and a fun and upbeat awards ceremony.  
 
Now that we have identified what makes a great golf tournament, now the question is how do we get there? What does it take to make this happen. All of this takes money and manpower.
 
Try these and you will keep golfers coming back year after year!
