There are nearly 1 million golf outings in the US each year, 90% of which are for the purpose of fundraising. With this competition, you need to ensure that you plan every aspect of your golf tournament from A-Z.
Step 1: Creating Your Plan
Golf tournaments require hard work, planning and require months of planning, concentration, and preparation. However, you can make the job easier by following “tried and true” techniques for a fun, successful and profitable event.
Step 2: Creating Your Event Timeline
A timeline helps to keep your event on track.
Step 3: Building Your Committee
Your committee is what makes your tournament go and ensures success. The people in this committee will help handle planning, managing key aspects of your tournament, and basically determine your success or failure. In other words, if you want your golf tournament to be a great success, you need to have the good solid committee members. The key is picking and choosing committee volunteers that are reliable, dependable and add value to your golf tournament.
Step 4: Budget
Sadly, many golf tournaments end up as a financial disaster, maybe big fun but, nothing to show for all the hard work! Mainly because organizers do not manage the budget correctly, make realistic goals.
Step 5: Choosing Your Format
These questions are important, as they’ll help decide what your format will be (in addition to the caliber of the golfers you invite
Step 6: Choosing Your Golf Course
Selecting the right, most wonderful golf course is very important, a beautiful place with rolling fairways, smooth as silk greens, and prime location. THIS is what your golfers will be coming for – make no mistake – thus, choosing one is among the most crucial decisions you can make when planning your golf course.
Step 7: Event Promotion
Once you have the tournament itself planned out, it’s important to start event promotion. This can take a variety of paths; but, for our purposes, we will talk about one of the most successful marketing strategies you can utilize: internet marketing.
Step 8: What Do Your Golfers Want?
Determine what your golfers, for your particular event “really” want. That’s the key to attracting golfers; are they casual weekend golfers, or hard core low handicappers? You’ll need to know to give the players what they want and will enjoy.
Step 9: Sponsors
Without sponsors, basically there is no golf tournament.Sponsors are the lifeblood of “any” golf tournament. It’s very important that you start selling sponsors as soon as you possibly can. This is the main way you’ll be making money from your tournament, which means it should be the #1 priority of your committee members. But how can you get sponsors for your brand new tournament? And how can you convince people to give you money, just because you’re hosting a tournament? Fortunately, it’s easier than you might think!
Step 10: Signs and Banners
When people arrive at your tournament, you want them to know they’re at the tournament. No understated subtlety here, no "uh oh, I think I might have taken the wrong turn"; you want the golf course to scream that they’ve arrived! If you hope this is the case – and we here at BestOutings.com guarantee that you do – then you need to forego the wire frames of small charities, and go big! Here’s what you need:
