About Golf Tournament Sponsorship. The first pool of sponsors for your MICE Golf Meetings Incentives Conferences Exhibitions ‘golf tournament’ should come from your organization’s pool of existing suppliers. Popular sponsorships include hole-in-one contests, gift bags, 19th Hole cocktail parties and golf trophies and awards banquets.
Can every meeting attendee participate in casual golf tournament formats and golf game breaks? Yes, absolutely! (We arrange disabled inclusions in our events). We handle hole-in-one insurance and we’ll help you set up your FREE event and golf outings web site. The popular Shot Gun Scramble format often is used at golf-theme conferences. A prime advantage of a scramble is it allows players of all abilities to contribute to the team’s success and helps speed play. Golfers who are new to the game can quickly learn the rules and terminology. The four-man scramble features teams of four players competing against one another. In this format, each team’s players hit from the tee box, then the team members choose the best of the four shots for the next shot. All team members then play the second shot from that location and again choose the best shot. Play continues in this manner until the hole is completed. The team then records its score and maintains that format for all 18 holes. Scramble tournaments are fun because high handicap players are paired with “never played golf before” novices. By forming teams in groups of four, it increases the odds that at least one player on the team will hit a quality shot during every rotation, thus helping speed the pace of play. The format also plays to certain golfers’ strengths. For example, some golfers excel at hitting tee shots, while others are better at chipping and putting. A 4-man scramble gives each player a chance to shine on various shots on any given hole.
Golf Game Day Breaks
• Get a FREE Custom Golf Event Website
• Golf Game Days/Great Group Photograph Opportunities
• Golf Game Days keep the momentum and energy high and present light-hearted video and still photo moments
• Cone Game. Set up three cones: one at 150 yards from the green, one at 50 yards from the green, and one on the green (at about a 10-ft. putt). Not only is this a fun way for your players to gain a competitive advantage on this hole, it speeds up pace of play on a harder hole – which is a win for everyone
• Circle Hole. For the Circle Hole, draw a 15-ft. circle around the pin on a par 3. If the ball lands inside the circle, the golfer gets a prize – if it doesn’t, they can try again or move on. Each golfer can have up to three tries that do not count as mulligans
• Wheel of Fortune Hole. Spin the wheel, where you split the options into beneficial ones such as: “Proceed to the green to putt” or “hole-in-one” or “everyone gets an extra drive”
• Straightest Drive. This can be a great alternative to the Longest Drive, for people who might not be able to hit the ball far – but they can hit it straight! You can also do Closest to the Curve, and instead of a straight line, draw a zig-zag on the course, and whoever lands closest to the white line, wins. Closest to the Curve can be fun as it’s all about luck, and even the worst golfer can win
• Beat the Pro and Play with the Pro. Set up on a par 3 hole, and have the golf professional challenge the group to a Closest-to-the-Pin contest. If anyone gets a better shot than the pro, that golfer gets a small prize
• Frisbee Golf. You might consider adding a game for great photo opportunities. Frisbee Golf mixes it up for your golfers and novice golfers alike. Tee off at a par 3 approximately 30-50 yards from the green, and use a Frisbee instead of a golf ball and club. Score by how many times it takes a golfer to throw the Frisbee and land it inside a hula hoop you have placed around the flag

“Meeting Planners have long accepted that a golf-outing is an unbeatable proposition to boost delegate attendance. Corporate CEO’s feel there must be some type of recreation at meetings – it can’t just be all learning and then go home – so the choice isn’t between having a meeting with golf or without golf, it’s between having a meeting with golf – or not having a meeting at all.” – says Anthony Webber, Regional Director at Global Cynergies, LLC for global golf-themed Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, and Exhibitions.
