Successfully Organizing Charity Golf Tournaments

Nov 3, 2007
Did you know that a golfing event is a great way to earn money for charitable organizations? Charity golf tournaments are highly successful for many reasons. First, people enjoy playing the game, so the fact that it is a golfing event will draw many people. Another reason for the popularity of these events is that people always jump at the chance to give to worthwhile causes, while at the same time getting something rewarding in return. But while these events are highly successful at bringing in money, they are incredibly difficult to organize and plan. Here are some tips for planning a successful charitable golfing event.

One of the first things you need to do is choose a date and location. Charity golf tournaments need to be planned and booked well ahead of time. Remember, when you are having your event, the course that you have chosen will basically be giving you the entire facility for your event. They are not willing to do this too often, so booking well ahead of time is important to ensure you get the course you want. Also, getting morning tee times, which is ideal for your players, can be a challenge. Again, booking early will help with this as well.

Once you have chosen your location and date, you need decide on your budget. This will allow you to purchase the important promotional materials you need to recruit players for your event. These materials can include:

* Apparel to give to potential guests
* Flyers advertising the event
* Incentive rewards for those who sign up
* Signs and posters to post around your area telling of your event.

These materials can be somewhat expensive to purchase. Try to find a company that will give you discounts since you are purchasing these products in bulk. You may also be able to get a discount if you let them know you are working on planning charity golf tournaments for a good cause.

One thing you may unintentionally overlook when planning is the rewards you will give your winning team or player. Also, do not forget to plan for equipment that your players might need. You will not want to ask them to pay extra for golf cars and balls, and you may have a player or two that forgets to bring clubs. If this happens, you need to have some equipment available for these players to use.

As you can clearly see, there is a lot of work that goes in to planning charity golf tournaments. One way to take some of the stress off of your shoulders is to work with a professional organization company. One of the most experienced companies in the industry is De Winter Golf Enterprises.
