Tips For Effective Planning Of A Golf Tournament

Aug 21, 2008
Golf tournaments provide opportunity for your club to get that desired recognition as well allow you to make a mark in the golf tournament scene. In addition, if you have a sponsor then that sponsor definitely benefits from the golf tournament by getting brand name recognition.

For planning that golf tournament you need to start planning well in advance and have a set of guidelines that will help you organize the tournament.

When you conceptualize the idea of a golf tournament then you need to make sure first of all that whether this event is going be an annual event or this is a one off event. That is important as that can mean a vast difference in terms of planning as well as corporate sponsorship.

Once that is decided you need to then start thinking about a venue for the tournament. That tournament can be had on a golf course which your club owns but if you are planning to host big names then you need to look out for a good venue. You need to decide that fast as that can be very challenging with a lot of competing tournaments trying for a good destination.

Next major thing is your sponsor for without those finances would be a tough thing to get. If you are organizing a tournament on behalf of a club then you can you need to get some sponsorship from the golf equipment manufactures such as golf ball manufactures or golf umbrella manufacturers. Then you can also try to get other sponsorships such as the gifts or the keepsakes for every player.

For effective planning and organizing you can do two things out of which one is an expensive approach and that approach is that you can outsource all these tasks to an event planning company. That company can actually take care of all the tasks with definitely project management oversight from you. The other way is to do all the tasks yourself which can be very challenging but it can be in your control.

For doing all the things yourself you will definitely need help from all the quarters you can get including having one or two assistants for administrative tasks. This is important especially when you interact with corporates for sponsorships or when you are writing invitation letters to golf players to participate.

The major thing to consider is the dates of the tournament which can likely impact the participation of players. To get maximum mileage you will need to have the press cover the event. Make sure that you call upon a big personality or a top government official as the guest of honor on the inaugural day well as the final day. That will definitely get you maximum press coverage.

There are other planning things that you need to take care of like the tournament format and the tournament coordinator. Then you need to plan for the stay of players as well as the transportation arrangement for the players.

For all the activities to be remembered is tough thing so make a checklist of all the activities with dates marked against each so that you are able to effectively mange and track all the things.
