Planning Winning Golf Events
You know that golf events are a great way to promote your business or corporation. You can network with others in your industry, negotiate big contracts with new clients, and strategize with coworkers while playing the game. But planning these tournaments and trips is not easy. Just stop for a moment and think about all of the details you will need to consider. A year before your tournament, you need to outline all of the objectives you have for the event. How many people do you wish to attend the tournament? Who is going to be in charge? You will want to recruit a team of people that will help you plan.
It’s important that these people are on the same page as you, understand your objectives, and are highly organized individuals. Having these objectives in mind will help you as you promote. One problem you may find, however, is that there are no people in your company that are organized and experienced enough to help you plan your tournament. Golf events take a tremendous amount of organization and forward thinking. At least six months before you plan to host your tournament, you need to choose the date and a budget.
Once you have chosen the date, start mapping out the things you need to accomplish before that date. This is also the time to choose a location for your tournament, if you have not already done so. If you do not book your location early, you will lose the chance to get the best courses, tee times, and dates. You are going to quickly find that there is far more to do than you ever dreamed possible. As your event draws closer, around three months before the tournament is scheduled, the work gets even more frantic. This is when you want to advertise. There are many venues you can use to advertise golf events, including press releases, promotional materials, incentives, and free giveaways. You are going to find that golfing promotional materials are quite expensive. This is also the time to choose the awards that you will give the winning players or teams and the structure of your tournament. You may be surprised how many different options there are for structuring your tournament.
As the tournament gets closer, you need to make sure you have planned not only excellent golfing for your guests, but also meals, accommodations, and entertainment for the rest of the day. On average, there will be eleven hours during a typical day of golfing where your guests have nothing to do. You need to provide then with interesting, golf-related activities to fill this time. That way they will not leave with a poor impression of you and your company. Does it sound like planning golf events may be too daunting of a task for one person to handle?
