Summer is in full swing and after being cooped up this past year, it feels great. As we approach the onset of schools resuming and the temperatures cooling there is no better time to plan outdoor activities. Whether it’s a team building event, company golf outing or a charitable outing, people are anxious to get involved with events that provide fun and relaxation and a little competition.
Golf outings are one to the most popular organized outdoor events that are fun for all participants. That is what makes them a great venue for charitable events. Whether you offer branded products for raffles, participation awards and placement awards.
There are a few things you need to plan to make your event a success.
Early Planning: Book your event four to six months before the big day to ensure the course can accommodate the number of guests you plan to have.
Send out invitations. Giving people 3-6 weeks warning before your date allows for plenty of time for attendees to adapt schedules. Going digital with your invite helps you update event info and send reminders leading up to the tournament. You can also impress your confirmed guests with branded postcards paired with divot repair tools and golf balls.
Plan for handouts at the registration table: Hand out gift bags to golfers when they stop by the registration table. They’ll love receiving a free gift just for showing up, and will be more likely to donate because of it. Fill their tote bags with promos they can use throughout the match, like branded polo’s to rep their team or bottled water and snacks to refuel on-the-go.
Setup raffles to help the cause: The perfect time to kick off your charity raffle is when the match is just about finished. Entice participants to donate with high-quality promos like branded golf bags or golf gloves. Have players buy raffle tickets at an affordable cost for the chance to win one of these big ticket items.
Make sure every guest leaves with something: All of your guests deserve to feel special – after all, they came out for a good cause. Celebrate all kinds of achievements, from the Longest Putt and Highest Scoring Team, to silly titles like Most Creative Team Name or Most Team Spirit. Guests will be as delighted to receive a branded trophy or plaque as they will to get a free sports bottle or golf towel.
