Planning Your 2016 Golf Tournament

by GTS on February 18th, 2016


2015 is behind us and 2016 is now upon us. Time flies by and before you know it your golf tournament will be here.  The best way to produce a better event than last year is proper planning and execution - brainstorm what would make for a better event and execute those ideas! Plan now and you will be ahead of the game. Here are the key steps to plan properly; follow these steps and you will be successful!
Have a clear purpose and objective: How much money would you like to raise and where is the money going? Consider our SuperTicket Fundraising Program - turn-key fundraising featuring vacations and a $100,000 shootout which have averaged $3,000 profit since 2001!
Recruit a motivated and connected volunteer committee: Share your vision and get them excited.
Find a golf course that gets golfers excited: Golfers will play in your event because of the golf course.
Choose a format that makes lots of winners: The more winners that you have the more people will come back next year.
Create golfer packages that encourages participation: Give golfers something to come for! Something that will be branded with the tournament's logo and/or a sponsor's logo that will stay in their lives and be used - see all of our Golfer Gift options for some great ideas and tried/true favorites. 
Promote your event to a target market and show quality: Promote a first class event to a specific group. Don’t be all things to all people.
Sell bigger sponsors by offering them a return on investment: Sponsors want customers and exposure.
Plan games and contests that generate money: Increase your bottom line with games that generate money.
Have an awards ceremony that is fun and allows networking: Keep golfers around and give them a reason to stay. Also the more awards you can hand out the better! We make buying awards easy and budget friendly - check out our Awards and Trophies to see how much money you can save versus local award shops.
Follow up with golfers and sponsors and they will give more: Don’t allow them to forget you and they will give you more for your cause.
