Before the first swing
If you are hosting a golf tournament, your efforts need to begin 6-9 months in advance. Pre-tournament promotions will help build excitement and participation in the event. Some outstanding gift options include branded golf umbrellas, a set of tees, or a divot repair tool kit. See our Golf Products for ideas you can use throughout the planning phase.
Branded apparel is essential for the day of the tournament. Your teams will stand apart with matching shirts. EmbroidMe can help you find the best moisture-wicking polo shirts that convey the look and feel of your event to ensure that all the players can keep their cool, even when the competition gets hot.
Tournament Gift Bags
As with so many charitable events, gift bags should be given out before the tournament gets underway. Choose a quality tote that reflects the theme of your event to hold items they can use during the tournament, such as a sports bottle, golf towel, balls, tees, and divot repair tools. Also, include a product they will use again and again, like a golf-themed pen. The tote, too, will be used many times afterward, reminding players of the good time they had, playing in your tournament and reminding them of your business or cause.
Golf tournaments are almost always themed around a charity, and there’s good reason for that—it’s a fun way to raise money and awareness for a good cause. To amp up the profit possibilities, give away prizes throughout the tournament and end the event with a raffle. Supply a unique item for the big prize and make sure you have plenty of branded giveaways so no one goes away empty-handed.
You can’t have a golf tournament without outstanding awards! Make yours memorable and plentiful. Your EmbroidMe expert can help you create trophies and plagues that can be awarded for achievements such as: Longest Putt, Longest Drive, and of course… the best overall score. Awards not only ensure goodwill on the day of the event, you can be sure the recipient will proudly display their honor in their homes and offices where observers can quickly be reminded of your event and your cause.
After the last hole…
Make sure everyone gets something to take home to remember your special event on the course. Theme photo frames, complete with a picture from the event, are a popular post-tournament item.
Your EmbroidMe store has brand name apparel from the golfing companies you know and trust and we have the experience to make sure your event is special and stands out from the rest. Visit your local resource center or give us a call to speak with a local expert who can help your event be fun, effective and memorable.
