Golf Contests: Creative Ways To Qualify Players & Fundraise

Insuring a golf contest at your upcoming golf outing that requires you to narrow down your players in some fashion?  Whether it’s a Million Dollar Shootout, chipping contest or other insured contest, here are a few ideas from Hole In One International on how to pre-qualify your player(s) to determine who gets to participate in your golf contests, as well as how to increase fundraising dollars, come the day of your golf tournament!

1.) The Raffle
A raffle is the most common way to pre-select participants for your golf contests.  Players simply pay a fee, determined by the golf tournament committee ahead of time, to have their name entered into a drawing should they want the opportunity to participate in a golf contest.  Place the name of everyone who pays up into a hat, box, bucket, barrel, you name it!  Then, simply draw a name at random to see who the lucky qualifier/golf contest participant will be!  Want to collect valuable marketing information?  When creating your raffle tickets, have a space for each player’s information — email, phone number, address, etc.

2.) Purchasing Mulligans
A mulligan is an automatic “do-over” on a shot, meaning the player can play it again if it was a particularly bad shot.  Charge your players $x per mulligan during your golf outing – just make sure they’re aware that they cannot use any on the designated target hole, if a hole-in-one contest is being insured.  Whoever ends up purchasing the most mulligans will come back at the end of the outing for a chance to participate in your golf contests!  It’s that simple!

3.) Auction
Holding an auction as part of your golf outing?  Whether it’s a live charity auction or silent auction, people are always trying to gain the upper-hand… especially when it’s revolving around the game of golf!  There’s a good chance that the bids during an auction will go very high, generating some great fundraising bucks!  Have the highest bidder come back at the end of the auction to participate in your golf contest for the chance to win big!

Are the gears turning yet?  Can you think of any other great ways to qualify players and fundraise when it comes to insuring golf contests?  Feel free to share them with us!  Or, if you have any questions, feel free to contact us at 800-827-2249 or email us!

Golf Tournament Ideas: Here’s One – Hire the Pro!

Looking for golf tournament ideas for your next outing?  Here’s a great one, especially for non-profit organizations and/or charity golf events: a “Hire the Pro” golf contest!  Hole In One International is here to explain how the contest works, as well as how it can help you increase those valuable fundraising dollars!

Once you have chosen the golf course, golf club or country club where your golf tournament will be taking place, coordinate with the staff to provide you with one of their on-site Club Professionals who is willing to be stationed at the longest/most challenging hole on the golf course.  It’s important to make sure that this particular Club Pro is skilled at making long drives.

Next, while players are playing the course and happen to come across the designated ‘Club Pro’ hole, have your players decide whether or not they would like the Club Pro to take their shot for them (just make sure to choose a hole where no insured hole in one contest or Million Dollar Shootout will be taking place; otherwise, those policies will become void).  Players will be charged a dollar amount of your choice, depending on the size of your golf tournament and the charity (if applicable)’s needs, if they decide that they would prefer the Club Pro to take the shot for them.

If the player’s team could benefit from shaving some points off of their score, a drive taken by a professional might come in handy and be worth the $X for the advantage.  Furthermore, if they see that the other teams are utilizing the Club Pro, the pressure will be on, likely resulting in the decision to pay up for the Club Pro’s shot.  Not to mention if the money’s going towards a good cause, that’s also an added incentive!

Do the math: If you have a full field of 144 players and every single one of them decides to pay $30 for the Club Professional to take the shot for them, that’d be an automatic $4,320 raised towards you and/or your sponsor’s cause!  Don’t want to use the contest as a fundraiser?  No problem!  Take that money and deduct it from the other costs of your golf tournament (food and beverage, golf goodie bags, cost of utilizing the course, etc.) and you’ll find that you’ve ended up paying a whole lot less for the outing!

Are you a big-named company with cash to spare or a renown celebrity golf tournament?  Up the ante tenfold by hiring a Touring Professional to take the shot instead and feel free to charge more!  Use these golf tournament ideas and utilize the ‘pro’ factor in any way, shape or form you can think of to maximize profits!

Looking for more golf tournament ideas?  Contact Hole In One International today at 800-827-2249 or email us for more pointers!  Good luck and be sure to let us know if you end up implementing this particular golf contest — we’d love to hear about it!  Just post to our Facebook page if you’re a fan or send us a Tweet!
