Make Your 2019 Golf Tournament Bigger and Better!

Nest time your charity golf outing committee convenes, make the first topic of conversation all about the age old question…”What have you done for me lately?” This is no time to rest on your laurels. Everyone coming to the event, whether it’s the players, their spouses, the volunteers…all are looking for BIGGER and BETTER than last year. It’s just the nature of the beast. So your job is to deliver! The player gift should be better. The contests should be better. The raffle prizes should be better. The auction should be better. The signage should be better.  The prizes and awards should be better. The food should be better. Maybe the course needs to be better?!? When you focus on how to make all these things better…you stand a much better chance of generating BIGGER revenue!! Good news: you and the committee don’t have to go it alone. After 26 years, Tournament Pros is all about bigger and better! Contact us for some free advice: 800-790-4653,


2019 Golf Tournament: Auction This!

If you’re planning a charity golf fundraiser, it’s all about raising funds for the charity, right? So you’re looking to generate as much revenue for the cause as possible–while spending as little as possible.  Which means you’re including an auction, right? Almost every auction company worth their weight in salt (including Tournament Pros!) offers memorabilia on consignment…and that means you’ve got no out-of-pocket expense and no risk holding either a live or silent auction, or both. No risk, all reward…sounds good to us.  Add as many items as you can get donated…and you’re on your way to a successful tournament, auction…and fundraiser.  Another key to success; the bid sheets should contain spots for bidders to leave their contact info. After the event, why not call these folks and see if they still want the item they bid on? Again, most auction houses (including Tournament Pros!) will have access to identical pieces. And now you’ve raised even more money. We’ll be glad to help you navigate your way through the whole auction process. Call 800-790-4653 or email No risk, all reward…sounds good, right?!

2019 Golf Outing: Make Your SWAG Memorable!

Will Rogers famously once said “you never get a second chance to make a first impression”. (Or was it Oscar Wilde?)  Regardless of who said it, they are very important words to remember when you’re deciding what t-prize to give your golfers when they arrive at the tournament! Are you going to hand them another shirt or hat…to go along with the dozens of other shirts and hats they have at home in their closet? Or are you going to give them something that stops them in their tracks…where they’re telling their friends they need to come to next year’s event!?! These days, you can put a tournament–or sponsor–logo on just about ANYTHING, and it doesn’t have to be golf related: electronics, home improvement items,  leisure items, and on and on. The list is truly endless…so explore all your options! Which is why you may need to put more than one committee person in charge of player gifts; it’s a big job…and perhaps the most important one.  If you need some help choosing the right gift, contact Tournament Pros at 800-790-4653,….and make that first impression a GREAT one!
