When I was young my mom always told me the “idle hands are the devils tools”, meaning if you do not keep busy on a regular basis then you will find some way to get into trouble. I strongly believe this is true and believe many children can avoid getting into serious trouble later in life if they pick up a hobby that is interesting to them and eventually can even turn into a passion. Since golf is a game that can never be perfected and players are always looking for ways to improve what better hobby to introduce children to at a young age than golf, which will provide them with a lifetime of enjoyment in addition to teaching them many attributes which can be applied to daily life.
Something that any golfer will tell you is critical to becoming a proficient player is hard work and practice, which are probably the most important aspects of this game millions love to play and can teach children these values at the same time. Anyone who has even attempted to hit a golf ball will tell you it is not easy, many beginners will completely miss the ball when swinging for the first time, however through perseverance players find they begin to make contact with the ball and become more consistent. When children begin to see improvement it shows them the results from being diligent through practice and hard work, two values which any person can not deny are crucial to success in the work place and can be applied to life in general. Once the child begins to see improvement they will want to practice more and more, spending more time hitting golf balls or practicing their putting skills, the more time they spend doing this the less time they will have to get involved with the “wrong crowd” and possibly start down a path affecting them for the rest of their lives and in some cases even leading to life of crime.
Contrary to popular belief starting a child in golf is not as expensive as one might think, you can normally find a complete set used children’s golf clubs for under $100. It will take some time before your child will feel comfortable enough to play competitively, however when they are ready there are many junior golf tournaments held around the country waiting for them.
The age old question for many not for profit organizations and charities is how can we raise money for our cause? There are many different methods the leaders of these organizations have tried over the years which can be anything from a bake sale to a car wash. An idea many leaders have found to be very successful as well as fun for everyone involved is organizing a charity golf tournament. A charity golf event provides the opportunity for people to incorporate their love for golf as well as donate to a good cause. After the decision has been made to host a golf tournament the next step is to begin recruiting players for the event.
After the decision is made to host a charity event the next step is to find players, leaving many promoters and organizers wondering who will be willing to participate in this event? The simple answer is anyone who is even remotely interested in golf could be willing to participate in the tournament. Unlike an amateur event where most people playing in the tournament are fairly good at golf with lower handicap, a charity event is not really about winning or losing rather more about raising money and helping people in need meaning the opportunity for participation is much larger appealing to a greater number of people. Many local golf courses have programs to help organize a charity golf tournament and will even advertise your event to people playing their course and course members. Another avenue to find willing players for your event is by contacting local businesses, many businesses will be willing to sponsor a team from their offices as this is a tax write off and can be used as an incentive for employees for hard work and providing them with a fun day out of the office. With corporate sponsors there are a number of different possibilities including team sponsorships, hole/tee sign sponsorships, and in some instances the company might be willing to sponsor the entire golf tournament.
