One of the best ways to support a good cause is to hold a charity golf tournament. And one of the best ways to reward your employees, muster up some team spirit, or kick off a new initiative is to plan a golf outing just for them. Whether it’s charity events, team building, networking events, or entertaining clients and partners, getting out there on the course seems to bring out the best in everyone!

How to Plan a Golf Tournament
Setting up a golf tournament is definitely not a cake walk! There’s a lot to plan and hundreds of details to worry about before the big day. Planning your event can sometimes feel like you’re getting ready for a Broadway show… complete with star players, promotion, ticket sales, and concerns over production quality. Fear not, since we’ve got tons of experience with pulling off successful charity golf tournaments and outings for all kinds of groups. Here’s a rough idea of all the different types of activities that go into planning this type of event...
- Setting a budget
- Help with lining up sponsors/hole patrons
- Getting the community involved to promote the event
- Connecting you with a golf pro for the event
- Organizing the sign-up process
- Fundraising, including golf cart promotions
- Help with Goodie Bags
- Directing traffic on the day of the event
- Customizing the event for your group size (e.g. shotgun tee times)
- Scoring the tournament
- Catering and alcohol
- Implementing safety precautions during the event
- Free drink tickets
- Raffles or auctions for prizes
- The after-golf event
With all this and more, we can help fill in the gaps if you’re an event planner who isn’t familiar with the sport. And even if you’ve been golfing for years, you may not know how to plan a golf tournament. That’s where we come in!
A Course to Accommodate Any Player
With golf outings or charity tournaments, it’s always good to hold your event on a golf course that can accommodate a variety of players who are at different skill levels. Knowing that your novice players will be comfortable and your experienced golfers will be challenged will give you lots of peace of mind. Our course is enjoyable for all levels of players and we’ll work with you to make sure no player is left feeling like they can’t play the course or enjoy the tournament.
How We Do Golf Tournaments and Outings
We want your event to be successful so we have a proven strategy that’s worked for us in the past to bring about many a successful charity golf tournament and outings for a variety of causes and/or corporate customers.
- Listening to you. First, we take the time to listen to your needs right from the get-go, during the initial planning stages.
- Creating your master plan. After we get a good sense of what your event should look like, who’s going to be involved, and how we’ll be measuring success, a master plan is created.
- Bringing the team together. The Master Plan is the blueprint for your event and brings together a diverse team of professionals. From caterers to caddies, it’s really a group effort to bring about a successful golf outing or charity tournament!
- Launching your event. Finally, we set things into motion by putting our team into action. It’s all coordinated by our event planner, who works to make it all happen according to plan.
You, as the lead contact for your event, will work with our event planner throughout the planning phases leading up to the day of the event and, of course, the actual day of the event. It’s end-to-end service that will leave you feeling like you had a partner for everything… which, of course, you will!
