An entry fee isn’t the only way to get donations from your golf tournament. Throughout the event, hold various short contests that bring in bonus donations for your cause. Participants can enter each contest by making an online donation via a mobile device. They can then challenge each other on the course to spark healthy competition. Considering the following on-course contests:
Closest to the pin
You’ll need a pen, ball markers, and a tape measure. In essence, this is a putting contest. Each player gets one stroke. After each, measure the distance from ball to pin, then record that number and the player’s name on the ball marker before replacing the ball with the marker. Once everyone’s had a chance to hit, the ball markers make it clear who the winner is.
For participants waiting to tee off, set up a putting contest to see who can successfully sink the longest putt. You could also run this as a standalone contest on a putting green.
Grip it and rip it: The longest drive
Many golfers are familiar with the phrase grip it and rip it. This contest tests who can hit the ball the farthest. Use multicolored or marked balls that can be used to determine the winner once each player has made a drive.
