PostSubject: how to run a charity golf tourny   Mon Nov 02, 2009 6:42 pm

hi all,

i'd like to ask from those who have organized a charity golf tournament for some advise.

firstly, i'd like to ask if anyone knows any generous companies who are willing to sponsor prizes. i can't be too specific here, but it's quite a prestigious event held at tmcc.

i'm on the organizing committee, very willing to make cold calls and do the legwork, but i haven't been getting good response. the committee have been working hard on the players and donations side so we have no problems with that. however, the sponsorship side is a little neglected, so even though a lot of VIPs are playing the prizes and sponsorship that we have got so far are not very fantastic.

second, anyone have any interesting novelty games ideas? the usual longest drive, nearest the pin/line and hole-in-one is quite routine. would like some unique ideas so spice things up.

many thanks in advance.

How about

1. shortest drive
2. Tee off for the longest using only putter
3. Worse score
4. Most well dress
5. Most bunker shots
6. Most ball into water - prize : Drink a jug of beer with golf balls inside as gift

Careful with the longest putter drive hor. Putter can bengkok one! Organiser better supple old disposable one.

you could make a certain hole playable by only a certain iron. Eg hole 9, you can only use 9 iron and nothing else. Least number of strokes win.

apart from all the prizes, how to allocate flights, and all the logistics..

in my own opinion, the most important thing is transparency on money issues.
how much money has been spent, spent on what and how much is going to the charity.

msmoon is spot on. The last event in previous forum has too many issues on transparencies. Expenditures always get people worked up unnecessarily. Be transparent and accountable on each cost spend. Get a lot of help to usher people to their position, especially non-golfers, they can help while you take the time to enjoy the game a bit.

some of the novelty events i had participated..

1. start off from middle of fairway to reach green. taken as a direct 2nd stroke. those who got on the green gets pts/prize/etc...

2. tee off from bunker

3. tee off using a specific club

4. tee off wearing a pair of flippers

5. spin a few rounds then immediately tee off

6. mark out an area on the fairway and whoever can lands their ball in the marked area wins pts/prizes/etc.. a test of whether they play for prize or play their game..

Thats all I can think of...

For sponsored items, you can also auction of clubs, balls, bags during the dinner so that you can use the fund for charity.

The other is photographs, these can be sold to participants for a small sum so that you can recoop the photo charges.

Sell coupons in par 3s for sg10 each, whereby those strike and tee off to the greens will double up their coupons.

joleelyn: event is at the end of this month. a little rushed, i know, but i joined the com only recently and am trying my best to chip in for this part.

transparency issues, donations and logistics-wise, no problem. the committee has run the tournament many times before and it was fine. it's mainly the sponsorship of prizes that worries me.

thanks all!
