Golf As A Great Philosophy!

Who doesn’t love skipping out of work early on a Friday afternoon to get in a round of golf, but better yet raise over $250 million while playing? Despite any alternative motives, golf fundraisers are a great source of fundraising for many non-profits. It has been estimated that golf fundraising events raise over $250 million, per year, for their respective cause. Over the course of a year, it is estimated that over 400,000 golf tournaments and events are held!

With such large amounts of money being raised each year through golf events, more and more non-profit organizations are using the sport as their major fundraising effort. Although profitable, holding a golf event may not be as easy as it seems, mainly because many non-profit organizers may not be overly familiar with the sport. In addition, hiring a golf pro to organize an event or lend advice can be costly for these non-profits who are working towards maximizing any profits by holding events for as little as possible. Mainly, many organizers are not familiar with the different golf tournament formats that may be utilized, which can impact how enjoyable the tournament is. The most common format for fundraiser is the four man scramble, but the stroke play golf format is also used, but less common. But with a little knowledge and organization, a golf event can be a great source of revenue.

Most tournament directors and/or sponsors turn towards a company like Foresite Sports to help with their hole in one insurance and golf tee sign needs.
