What It Takes To Arrange An Awesome Golf Tour

Arranging a golf tour irrespective of its nature or size can be a daunting task. However, when you follow a systematic procedure, you can be assured that your event runs without any hitches and successfully. Here are some tips, which will guide you in accomplishing this feat.

Clear objective

You need to be clear about the objective of the tour such as whether it is to raise funds for charity or to name a champion or any other goal. When you have a clear concept of the tournament objective, you can readily book a suitable golf course. Since golf courses need at least around 9 to 12 months advance booking, you have to be very clear on the objective.

Budget planning

Once you have your objective defined, you move on to the format that suits you best. This depends on the cost involved. Find about the money needed to hold the tour in different courses and pick one that fits your budget and needs. Entry fee would not be the main profit generator, so you need to focus more on sponsorships. Being clear about the events in the tournament and creating hype about the exciting experience is sure to generate revenue.

Event promotion

Know about the various ways by which you can attract players. Press releases, tournament flyers, social medial, email list etc., help to spread the word nicely. Since advertising is time-consuming work, you need to do it right to avoid it from becoming too overwhelming.

Form a committee

Since a tournament has various aspects to see to, including, social functions, dates, prizes, transportation, potential sites, beverage and food, and other aspects, you should gather volunteers and form a committee to plan the event and organize it, so everything runs smoothly.

Efficient management

For the tour to progress smoothly, you need to have an efficient base set up for all aspects right from receiving applications, designing golf shirts, registration and silent auction to beverage carts and other entertainments. It is best to get help from the experts in the final leg of the arrangement, so you have all the information regarding the tournament in the proper way. Experts will also help in handling things in a better way.

Even if the bottom line is what you consider important as organizer of the tour, to attract participants and make them return, they should have a satisfying experience. Some look for the social aspect, while others focus on the golf more. When you use unique ideas for the prizes, guest speakers and other parts of the event, it will make the tour stand out more prominently.



Golf Is All About Strategy

Considering all aspects of a golf course you’ve never played before takes a bit of time. But you will reap the rewards of that effort during play. Your final score will surprise your opponents who thought they had one up on you because of their familiarity with the course. So take the time and do your homework. Making a habit of doing so will improve your game immensely. Golf is, after all, as much about strategy as it is about skill.
