Keeping Your Cool in the Summer Charity Golf Tournaments

There may be just a month or so left of summer…but that’s no excuse for letting your guard down for the tournaments in August.
So…some tips and tricks for your upcoming golf outing:
1. Have some water on every tee box.
2. If that’s not logistically possible, have several carts out on the course with water moving from hole to hole.
3. If THAT’S not possible…have LOTS of bottled water available at the turn (end of each nine holes)
Keeping your players hydrated is vital…not only for their health, but for their overall attitude; you don’t want them “spent”
at the end of the round just when you’re hoping they’re ready to SPEND money on raffle and auction items.
If you’re going to run short of any beverages, have it be the alcohol that goes first; consuming beer, etc in the heat is just going to
make everyone worse off anyway! H2O is your best friend…for at least another month!

Make Everyone a Winner at Your Golf Outing

Everybody loves a winner…especially when it’s them! One of the keys to a successful golf tournament is to make as many people as possible feel good…about themselves, your organization and the tournament itself. Nothing will do more to make sure they return–maybe with friends!?–than feeling good about their experience at your fundraising event. So what can you do to ensure that happens? Here’s a few ways you can add to the winners’ list:
1. Have as many contests as possible. The more contests, the more winners: Putting contest, chipping contest, long drive contest, shortest drive contest, straightest drive contest, crookedest drive contest, longest putt made, closest-to-the pin (on every par 3 hole), scratchcards, cash shootouts: $1M shot, $25K bonus shots, etc., hole-in-one prizes, 1st place team, 2nd place team, 3rd place team, last place team!
2. Have as many raffle prizes as possible. The more prizes, the more winners. Make EVERYONE on the committee responsible for getting raffle prizes donated…or finding/making special deals for some.
3. Have an auction…live or silent or both.
Remember…there’s a direct correlation between the number of winners you have–and therefore the number of happy people there are–and the success of our event. It’s a winning formula!
