Fundraising Activities – pt 2.

Last week, we went over activities and contests to help you fundraise before your golf event.  This week it’s all about what can take place during and after your event!  Read on for more pointers!

During your event a great fundraiser to hold is a Par 3 Challenge.  Every golfer loves some good competition – not to mention the chance to show off, which is why this contest is so great.  Have one person bet their team $x that they can get their ball on the green with a single swing.  If they miss, that money will go to charity; if they make it, they can either get their money back, receive a discount at the pro shop… or both!  Another great idea is to have each team on the golf course purchase a Long Drive and have a local Long Drive champion there on the course with them.  Depending on who wins (the player or the ‘champ’), half of the money put into the contest will go to the victor, while the other half goes to charity!  Don’t you just love it when everyone’s a winner?

After your event is the ideal time to hold a Million Dollar Shootout.  Once again, charge players $x to get in on a raffle, draw a random name and have that person try and make a hole in one for a whopping $1,000,000!  After the event is also a great opportunity to hold a silent auction, which can be setup prior to the event.  Be sure to post up sign-up sheets for next year’s event and give players a discount off of the regular rate if they register on the spot… or an additional discount if they pay right there and then!
