Why not YOUR charity?! When you have a CASH prize as a main hole-in-one prize, why not split it with the golfer?!
As long as you declare your intentions before the event begins–whether that be in the rules, an announcement before the start of play or on the sign at the tee–you’re good to go! And if lightening strikes–as it did on 8/7/23 at the Brain Rampolla Memorial Golf Tournament at the Piney Branch GC in Hampstead, MD–your organization could be a BIG winner! You can do the same thing with a $5K or $10K putting contest, a $1M shot or even a shot within 1 ft. wins $1000 par 3 contest! Call or email us today and get a free consultation on how we can help your charity RAISE MORE MONEY!! (800) 790-4653, firstname.lastname@example.org
…that your charity golf tournament is a success if you have a lot of sponsors. And those sponsors deserved to be recognized for their contributions… with a great big TEE-SIGN! You can put tee-signs on the tees. You can put tee-signs by the green. Put them at registration…and put them up at the awards dinner. Sign, sign, everywhere a sign! Tournament Pros can help you with those signs; big signs, little signs, banners, pin flags and cart stickers too! Give your sponsors the recognition they deserve; call us at 800-790-4653 or info @tournamentpros.com and let us help you make ALL your sponsors happy…which brings them back year after year!
You always have hole-in-one prizes. You’ve done the Putting Contest. Each year there’s the Long Drive and Closest-to-the-pin contests. And of course there’s the raffle prizes and the silent auction. So what’s left?? PLENTY! Have you featured a shot for…ONE MILLION DOLLARS?!? Have you tried a HELICOPTER BALL DROP?!? What about a TRICK SHOT SHOW?!? Many organizations like yours are looking for ways to set themselves apart from the “other guys”. Everybody’ s cause is a worthy one, but let’s face it, golfers can only take so many days off from work to play in an outing…and job #1 is to make sure they choose YOUR tournament! Which means you need to go one (or two?!) steps beyond the competition and set yourself apart. Additionally, the ideas just mentioned are wonderful ways to INCREASE revenue…and when all is said and done, isn’t that goal #1?!! Tournament Pros stands ready to explain how a clinic or ball drop or $1M shot can be just what the doctor ordered 🙂 So give us a call (800) 790-4653 or shoot us an email (email@example.com) and let the FUN and FUNDRAISING begin!!
$300? $400? $600?!!
If you’re not doing either a live or silent auction at your golf tournament, you’re leaving a lot of revenue for the cause…uncollected. So…start collecting! Almost all memorabilia companies offer their pieces on consignment, so there’s a)no out-of-pocket expense to you and b) no risk! And if you’re tired of the same old tired signed balls, bats or framed pictures, there’s now exciting adventures and experiences you can offer up: How about a virtual piano lesson from Elton John?! Or maybe two tickets to the Grammys?! Maybe one of your guests would like to go to The Masters?! Or on an African safari?! Gambling junket to Vegas?! Wine-tasting party in Napa? Again…the risk to you is zero, nada, nothing. Forgive the cliche, but what do you have to lose?!? If you need help finding out more about all these options–including good ‘ole fashioned memorabilia!–give us a shout at (800)790-4653 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Do I hear…$1000?! SOLD!
Breaking news: A charity golf tournament is a LOT of work. A SUCCESSFUL charity golf tournament–that raises more than the $5K average profit out of the 1.5M charity outings each year–is REALLY a lot of work. So…get some help! Form a committee of a handful of people (five is enough, 10 is too many) who you feel will roll up their sleeves and dig in; i.e. you want to find people who care about your cause as much as you do! Assign each person a different task regarding “day of” activities (registration, goodie bag distribution, on course volunteers/witnesses, raffle ticket sales, drink cart, etc). But make every member of the committee responsible for finding golfers and sponsors (if that’s still an issue). Make sure they all understand that while their input is desired and valued, in the end, you (as committee chair) have the final say. Get a special thank-you gift for every committee member and present it to them at the awards ceremony so they can receive the recognition they deserve for their hard work. Remember…for a successful fundraiser like a charity golf tournament, it’s not the time to go it alone! P.S. Make sure to remind each member that THEY don’t have to go it alone either; we are here to help: Contact email@example.com, 800-790-4653 for hole-in-one coverage, contests, sponsor signs, player gifts, auction items, raffle prizes and anything else you need to make this the best year ever for your charity golf outing!
