Selecting your golf course should be high on your list of priorities first in your preparation. You will need to take into account your golfers’ budgets. However, the price is not the sole deciding factor in your selection. Is the course challenging, yet fair? Is it famous for being in exceptional condition? Is the staff friendly, yet professional? Do they have centers for your own feast? You will probably approach several of the local facilities. When you get the courses, ask if they’ve got an in-house event planner. It is always helpful to have one individual who is going to become your course contact. When a question arises, you’ll want a decision-maker available. During your initial contact, request a mobile phone number and an email address.
The golf course staff will need to understand your preferred date(s), the number of golfers you anticipate, your format (shotgun start or tee times), your schedule for the day (breakfast, lunch, refreshments during registration, dinner). You do not have to have all the details of the day intended with this initial meeting, but the more information you can give, the better understanding the staff will need of your objectives and requirements. You will wish to have an estimated budget for what you anticipate the course to supply and be clear about your needs… don’t overlook drinks, lunch, prizes. Some courses will be willing to provide all-inclusive package prices while others will offer ala carte pricing. Do not neglect to inquire about fees for calculating scores, renting banquet facilities or support fees, and taxation. Ask whether the course takes a deposit. This will have to be dealt with in your preparation. Are you required to register a contract or would the course pout their pricing on paper?
Request the course representative what services they offer that may set them apart from other courses. Do they offer discounts on pro shop purchases, coupons for return visits, rounds of golf clubs for prizes? Are they willing to make a donation to your charity or sponsor a decoration? Can they offer you any assistance in your marketing? This can have a massive influence on your tournament! Bear in mind, most event planners have a vested interest in your achievement!
Many planners may also help you with signage and competition ideas. It’s a fantastic idea to discuss this several months before the event as a few custom-made logos and special order items might be necessary for the competitions. Today, there are many ways that special on-course competitions can call for the golfers in creative methods and add much-needed $$ to your own contributions.
Some of the easier contests for volunteers to assist with are:
- Beat the Pro
- Pot of Gold
- Putting Competition
- Hole-in-One Contests. (Read this article about hole-in-one contest coverage)
- Silent & Live Auctions
- Blind Bogey
Additionally, there are numerous unique ideas that a fantastic planner can help you organize. But remember… the course will require advance notice of most of these competitions that might call for more volunteers tables, tables at the putting green or driving selection, signage, measuring apparatus, volunteer carts, etc.
Ask if your course can offer sponsor signs. Some courses will publish your sponsor ads and provide low-cost tee signals. This can be an inexpensive alternative to having signs professionally published. Read this online article to learn more.
