Show Off Your Sponsors with Signs and Promotional Products

Planning a golf outing? Sponsor signs and promotional products are a must! Not only are you letting your sponsors know how appreciative you are of their patronage, but you’re also helping them gain new recognition as well. Well-placed signage and promotional gear grabs spectator attention and lets those in attendance know just how generous your sponsor has been in preparing your golf outing or tournament.

However, when it comes to golf outing sponsor signs and promotional products, you want to make sure you have the right design team. While there are plenty of online tools that let you place logos onto signs and products, the result might be less than stellar. From pixelated logos to poor color match, what looks good online doesn’t always look as good in person.

When it comes to sponsor signs for a golf outing or tournament, you don’t want to leave anything to chance. Your sponsors and spectators will be looking at what you purchased with a critical eye. That’s why you should ask for digital mockups of your signs and products before you buy them. Likewise, make sure you work with someone directly — like you can with our team — so they can assure you that everything will look exactly the way you expect.

How to Get Sponsors for Your Golf Fundraiser

A golf fundraiser tournament is an excellent way to generate money for your organization for several reasons.

Golf is a popular sport and tournaments even more so, especially if you use something like a best-ball format that welcomes all golfers, just not the low handicappers.

A lot of them are held during weekdays, and most people would much rather be on the course than in the office.

People also like to play golf fundraiser tournaments because they want to help others.

And, finally, they like to go because tournaments usually have lots of good prizes.

That’s why you need sponsors for your tournament — to provide those good prizes that attract golfers and to help defray expenses for hosting the event. You need to give sponsors a reason to donate. Make sure they know that it’s for a good cause, and tell them what it is.

Mention tax breaks that can be received from charitable donations. Let them know you’ll give them plenty of promotion during the event, and that it’s good marketing. Also, throw some free entries their way. Most companies have golfers who would love to play in an event.

At Tournament Pros, we know that if you keep your sponsors happy, they will keep you happy.

Tips for Holding a Silent Auction at Your Golf Tournament

A golf tournament is a great way to spend the day. This is true even if you’re a duffer because a bad day on the course is better than a good day at work.

If you’re hosting a fundraiser tournament, you want to make it wildly popular. Tournament Pros has some tips for you. A sold-out tournament brings in plenty of entry fees, and adding a silent auction can really boost the amount you raise. The beauty of an auction, apart from how lucrative it is, lies in the fact that once you’ve done the prep work, it pretty much runs itself.

The first thing you need to do is get swag to auction. Find sponsors and businesses that are willing to make a charitable donation to your event. Aim for companies that appeal to golfers, like sporting goods stores. If companies are entering teams into your tournament, ask them for donations. They can write it off as a deduction. Remember to hit up the host club for a silent auction donation, and they will likely provide green fees or something from the pro shop.

Once you get items, display them prominently to attract bidders and make sure to promote it during the tournament with announcements and signage. Put a form with the item that tells what it is, the value, and who donated it. Leave plenty of space for bidders to add their amount and contact details.
