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.
