Are you planning a golf event for this spring or summer? Let Excalibur Group assist you with custom prizes, awards, banners, signs and auction items. Here are five important steps to planning a golf tournament…
Secure Sponsors – Golf tournaments can be pricey and many of them rely on products and donations from sponsors of all sizes and industries. Starting early is the key, and you should try to begin reaching out to your potential sponsors up to a year in advance, especially those larger corporate supporters. Those organizations usually have full calendars this time of year so be sure that you are part of their financial plans in the preceding months leading up to your event. You can approach sponsors confidently knowing that Excalibur Group can help you develop custom promotional products and event signage prominently featuring your sponsor’s logo and tag line.
Support A Charity – Most tournaments are held with the goal of raising money for a nonprofit organization like the American Cancer Society, Susan G. Komen or maybe a smaller, local charity. People love to help causes that are dear to their heart, so advertise the organization of choice avidly so those who support that type of cause can sign up. Custom promotional products featuring the charity and/or event logo and tag line are a great way to generate awareness that lasts beyond your golf event.
Establish Committees – Develop a robust team to help you organize your event. Select a goal-oriented volunteer to lead teams for Fundraising, Logistics, Volunteers and PR/Marketing. Excalibur Group would be honored to assist on your PR/Marketing committee and be a contributor not only as a products and services vendor but also as a resource for marketing and promotional ideas.
Hire A Social Media Guru – Recruit a photographer who is tech savvy and has social media skills so they can integrate event updates and details into posts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. These tasks can help promote and grow the participation and support leading up to your event and for the future.
Provide Prizes, Awards and Auction Items – Tournaments are a great time to give out branded items. Offer gifts for hole in ones, closest to the pin, longest drive, etc. and provide goodie bags for the players filled with items relevant to your event, charity and sponsors. You may also want to consider giving awards and recognition to your top sponsors and/or fundraisers. Excalibur Group offers a wide variety of plaques, trophies and other recognition items designed to meet this need.
