Planning a Golf Outing or Charity Event

I'm not going to pretend that this post will appeal to most of you... but for those of you who need it, it could be a lifesaver.

Golf Digest has just posted a guide on how to organize and host a golf outing, be it just a fun event or a full-blown charity event. I knew such guides existed but I'd never seen one before, and this one breaks things down into small manageable steps.

Golf ball teed up in a pile of money

For example, you may not realize that most of the money for a charity event comes not from entrance fees but from sponsors. This guide tells you some of the basic ways to attract sponsors and how they create a cash stream for an event.

It gives you some tips on how many people you need to have on your event-running team and what sort of tasks they should do to make sure the event runs smoothly and successfully.

The guide even gives you some direction on how to choose a suitable golf course and a tournament format that will match the skill levels of your intended attendees.

Clearly a single article like this won't tell you everything you need to know in order to run a golf event like an experienced pro. But it will point you in the right direction and give you an overview of what you're getting yourself into. Just having a clear vision of what you'll be facing might make the difference between a successful event and a disaster.

By all means, choose to make your event successful and read this guide!
