Photos & Videos of Your Golf Tournament

NonprofitSwingWant to give your tournament participants and volunteers a way to remember your golf outing for years to come?  Then be sure to take as many photos and videos as possible before, during and even after your event!  Just make sure they’re quality photos/videos.  Wondering how to ensure that they are?  Hole In One International is here to explain how to make the most out of your visual memories and provide you with some great ideas!

Photos
Make sure you pay attention to what you’re taking photos of!  (This may seem elementary, but truth be told we see a lot of photos of scenery and beverage carts.)  While these types of photos are okay to have, it’s still important to focus on your main subject: your tournament participants!  Be sure to gather some great action shots of your players, individual photos and team/foursome photos.  Have your designated photographer (if applicable) drive around in a golf cart and take some unique photos.  Also be sure to take photos of any contest winners you happen to have!  If/when hole in one insurance is included in your outing, be sure to take a photo of any winners you have next to the prize they’ve won, if it happens to be out on the golf course; otherwise, have them stand by the appropriate signage on the hole that shows what they’ve won!

Videos
Be sure to take footage of your golfers throughout the duration of your outing.  Put together a ‘collage’ of sorts to share at your awards ceremony and sell to participants (as well as to use to promote the next event). It will make for plenty of laughs – especially if you manage to catch some footage of any golf follies, such as a player being stuck in an inescapable sand trap or a player’s ball landing straight into a water hazard.  Depending on the amount/quality of video equipment available at your golf tournament, you can also station the video cameras on a specific hole on the course and video each golfer playing that particular hole.  Or, if you have the time, you can even video each golfer’s performance from start to finish and possibly sell a video of their performance to them.  Looking to give your sponsor(s) additional exposure?  Feel free to include any necessary commercials in the video as well.

Car Dealership and JDRF Insure Hole In One Contest

Maserati LogoLooking to help attract participants to your next fundraising golf tournament?  Read on about this hole-in-one contest which was insured by a car dealership and held at a country club in California as a fundraiser for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.  You’ll undoubtedly see why it was such a bit hit!

On the specified golf tournament date, 118 amateur players showed up to tee off for Juvenile Diabetes.  As an added incentive, a brand new car was out on the course that day.  If any of the 118 golfers were able to ace this particular 165-yard par 3, they’d be driving away in style that day… in a brand new $100,000 Maserati, compliments of Hole In One International!

That’s not all, either: thanks to Hole In One International’s hole in one insurance, complimentary signage adorned the course and players were given a chance to win auxiliary prizes as well, should they have aced any of the other non-target par 3 holes on the courses.  The prizes available were a $500 VISA Gift Card, Kindle Fire and a set of Cleveland® CG16 Black Pearl Irons!

“Offering a large grand prize at your golf tournament is a surefire way of boosting attendence and grasping the players’ interest”, explains Brent Kelly, Southwest Business Development Manager with Hole In One International’s sister company, Odds On Promotions, who happened to work with this specific dealership for this golf promotion.  “When players see that prize being advertised out on the course, they’re more apt to pay/donate to participate in the tournament.”

While, unfortunately, no one was able to ace the hole with the Maserati, a great time was still had by all and the money raised went toward a wonderful cause!

Planning Your Company Golf Outing

Hole In One International

In a panic because you’ve just learned that you’re in charge of the company golf outing?   Looking for some tips on how to ttake your current outing from drab to fab?  Good news!  Kristen Hansen, Social Media Marketing Assistant with Hole In One International, is here today to help you out with some great pointers!

Name Your Outing
This may seem like a no-brainer but  it’s important!  Give your outing an enticing, yet simple and repeatable name.  For example, rather than using a generic name like “Hole In One International Golf Outing”, try adding a few attention-grabbing words (i.e. Hole In One International’s Whole Office Tee Off )  Already have a name for your outing you’ve been using previous years?  No problem!  It’s never too late to change it up!  This is your tournament, after all.

Find Your Players & Sponsors
You and your golf planning committee should be able to target potential players and sponsors with ease. You can invite employees, clients, and vendors. You can assigne your sales team to identify their own foursomes. Whatever is best for your … as long as you have a  game plan on who you plan on inviting.  Tip: Be sure to have someone from your committee build a website for your golf outing where players and sponsors can register/pay online!  Not only is having a website great for advertising purposes, but it makes receiving your funds as easy as 1-2-3!  And be sure to offer your sponsors their own  sponsor signs so they’ll get their recognition out on the golf course!

Scope Out Your Venue
Another important step to planning any golf outing is researching the golf course/golf club where you’ll be holding your event. Make sure the course can accomodate the number of players you plan on having that day, make sure the greens are maintained to your satisfaction and always be sure to consult with your committee before making any final decisions.

Make Your Event Appealing
You need to stand out!  Consider using a celebrity or local business leader as your event Chairperson, which will give your event instant credibility.  Offer a large amount of sponsorships and load them with value.  Also be sure that you’re offering fun and exciting golf contests to your event — the hole in one contest is arguably the most popular, but you could also hold a longest/straightest drive or closest to the hole contest as well.  The possibilities are endless!  Add pre-, on-course and after-event games to maximize interest.
