On Target Golf Tournament Success Stories
Jun 1, 2017
You and I know that golf means more than just a tiny white ball rolling across a massive green. It means raising money for a charity, getting together with business acquaintances, inking deals over the golf course and have your brand seen at that community event
Since people of virtually every fitness level can participate, golf tournaments provide the perfect backdrop for everything from casual conversation to fierce competition. And with 24.1 million self-proclaimed “golfers” in the U.S. and some 800,000 tournaments held each year, the events appeal as much to small non-profit organizations as multi-national corporations.
One of the reasons golf tournaments are so popular among players is because they appeal to golfers of all levels. Beginners have just as much chance at claiming victory as seasoned professionals, since foursomes are specifically assembled to evenly distribute talent.
A Few short golf tournament success stories:
- Conceived to raise funds for teaching the deaf, The HEAR Center Annual Golf Tournament has been the mainstay of the center’s fundraising efforts for 33 years, raising $750,000 during that time.
- The Southern California grief support group, New Hope, exceeded their goal with their first golf tournament, Fore Hope, collecting $30,000 through tournament registrations, a silent auction and sponsorships.
- The Fidelco Fall Classic is an annual charity golf tournament that benefits a New England guide-dog school. The three-year-old event is a significant revenue generator for the foundation, having raised $12,000 its first year and $20,000 the second. The event is sponsored by Stanley Corp., makers of Stanley tools, a partnership that has connected the foundation to a host of other companies.
In addition to team-building and fundraising, tournaments are a great way for non-profit directors and entrepreneurs to brand — not just with on-site signage but also through personalized prizes and participant swag. Whether you choose to distribute gifts on the golf course during registration, immediately following game play, inside the clubhouse following the tournament, or as the highlight of a follow-up banquet, there are lots of great ways to promote your brand:
