Selecting your golf course ought to be high on your list of priorities first in your preparation. You will have to take into account your golfers’ budgets. But the cost isn’t the sole determining factor in your selection. Is the course challenging, yet fair? Is it famous to be in excellent condition? Do they have facilities for your own feast? You’ll probably approach several of the local facilities. If you contact the courses, ask if they’ve got an in-house event planner. It is always helpful to have one person who is going to be your course contact. When a question arises, you’ll want a decision-maker accessible. During your initial contact, request a mobile phone number and an email address.
The golf course personnel need to know your preferred date(s), the number of golfers you anticipate, your arrangement (shotgun start or tee times), your schedule for the day (breakfast, lunch, refreshments during enrollment, supper). You do not have to have all of the details of the day intended for this initial meeting, but the more information you can give, the better comprehension the staff will need of your objectives and needs. You are going to wish to have an estimated budget for what you anticipate the course to supply and be clear about your needs… don’t overlook beverages, lunch, prizes. Some courses will be inclined to provide comprehensive package prices while some will provide ala carte pricing. Do not forget to ask about charges for calculating scores, leasing banquet facilities or service charges, and taxation. Ask whether the course requires a deposit. This will have to be dealt with in your preparation. Are you required to sign a contract or would the course pout their pricing on newspaper?
Ask the course representative exactly what services they provide 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 prize? Can they offer you any assistance in your marketing? This may have a massive impact on your tournament! Remember, most event planners have a vested interest in your achievement!
Many planners may also help you with signage and contest ideas. It is a good idea to explore these several months before the event as some custom logo and special order items might be necessary for the competitions. Today, there are lots of ways that particular on-course contests can call for the golfers in creative ways and include much-needed $$$ to your own contributions.
Some of the easier contests for volunteers to assist with are:
- Closest to the Pin, Longest Drive & Most Reputable Tee Shot & Skins
- Beat the Pro
- Pot of Gold
- Putting Competition
- Hole-in-One Contests. (Check this article)
- Silent & Live Auctions
- Blind Bogey
Additionally, there are several unique ideas that a good planner can help you arrange. But remember… the course will require advance notice of the majority of these competitions which may require extra volunteers tables, tables in the putting green or driving selection, signage, measuring apparatus, volunteer carts, etc.
Ask if your course can provide sponsor signs. Some courses will print your host ads and provide low-cost tee signs. This may be an inexpensive option to having signs professionally printed.
