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!

SPONSORSHIPS…the magic word for 2023!
Though your players are vital to success, SPONSORS are the real key to reaching your revenue goals. With so many events to choose from, golfers are very keen on getting the best bang for their buck; if you try and gouge them, beware! In other words, don’t double the green fees. Adding a little to what the course charges is fine, the key word being “little”. You can also sell a fun contest package at registration, have a “buy-in” at a hole or two (not four or five), create a fun raffle and have some nifty auction items, but that’s not going to generate the big bucks you’re after. THAT needs to come from the land of SPONSORSHIPS. And the key here is NOT to stop at 18 hole signs; that should only be the beginning of your quest for more sponsors. Time to think outside the box…perhaps starting with a (box) lunch sponsor! Then there’s the driving range sponsor, the drink cart sponsor, contest sponsors and of course, a TITLE SPONSOR. But wait…don’t stop at the traditional hole-in-one, closest-to-the-pin and long drive sponsors. Why not have a MILLION DOLLAR SHOT contest/sponsor? Or a $5000 putting contest/sponsor? Or a $25,000 Shoot-out contest/sponsor? The insurance to cover these prizes is not NEARLY as expensive as you might think! So a sponsorship not only covers the small cost, but allows you the opportunity to make much more on top of that. Best of all, those sponsors look like real heroes putting up these big prizes themselves, but of course, they’re not on the hook for any of these large payouts. (Companies like Tournament Pros write those big checks if someone can make a winning shot.)
