Make Sure Your Golf Tournament Awards are up to Par

​We have seen it many times... a tournament with a tight budget will only pass out awards to the 1st place team, and not only that, but the quality of the awards just isn't great - or they decide to just do gift cards. Don't do this at your tournament! Many golfers really enjoy being presented with an award and proudly display it at their office or home - which reminds them of your tournament and come next year they are more likely to attend again. 

Physical awards also serve as conversation pieces which will promote your event - "Hey John that's a nice ___ (longest drive, closest to the pin, 1st place, etc.) award you have on your desk - what tournament did you win that at?" John proceeds to say how fun the tournament was and why he should play in his foursome next year. Another golfer added to your tournament without any marketing efforts on your part!
 
Your goal should be to make as many winners as possible. Golfers that win awards, especially, come back year after year. There are many award possibilities at golf tournaments, here are some examples:
 
1st, 2nd 3rd Place Team (Flight A, B, C)
36 Winners

Make sure to have plenty of great raffle prizes too! Include raffle tickets in your SuperTicket Fundraising Package offering to increase your gross donation amount from the tournament - golfers appreciate the one-donation approach that our SuperTicket offers, rather than buying raffle tickets before, during, and after the round. Take care of business, aka asking for donations, in the morning and leave them alone to enjoy their round and the beautiful course!
 
And back to the awards - remember give them really nice awards and they will come back, and bring their friends!
