Getting the Community Involved
Fun Golf Fundraising Ideas
A golf outing is not only a great way to raise money for your organization but the perfect way to bring the community together in support of your charity's cause.
Finding the Perfect Venue
Secure a venue that is willing to give your charity a discount on green fees, or better yet, will donate the fees. A course with a clubhouse works well since you will be able to hold a dinner or banquet at the end of the event. This is a good opportunity to have others attend who are not interested in the golf portion of the event.
Sponsorships are a great way for local merchants and businesses to gain community recognition while supporting your charity event. Sponsors can be secured for different parts of the event such as putting greens, golf holes, refreshments or even golf carts.
Getting People Involved
Remember the more players you have, the more money you will raise for your organization. Why not invite local TV and radio personalities to your event and have other local celebrities involved as well? Celebrities are a great way to draw people to your event.
Plan a Mini Golf Tournament!
If an official golf tournament is out of the question, then hold a mini golf outing instead. Mini golf is fun for both children and adults and can bring in revenue for your charity.
Prizes and Awards
Why not give awards and prizes at the event for things such as hole in one, longest drive and overall winning team.
Plenty of Golf Fundraising Ideas
When it comes to planning a golf outing, the sky is the limit. There are so many ways to get creative with golf fundraising ideas. The day can be filled with activities that will raise money and will result in a huge profit for your organization. Be sure to have many elements in place that will raise money such as raffles, auctions and other contests throughout the day. Remember to have fun with your event and make it as enjoyable and exciting as possible for all those who attend.
Recognition and Publicity
Be sure to have the media involved so that your event gets recognition and publicity is given to your charity. The more your event is advertised, the more likely it will be to get a big response of people interested in attending. It is also a nice idea to have the golf tournament results listed in the local newspapers afterwards.
