Hosting a golf tournament fundraiser is a big undertaking, especially because golf tournament fundraisers are often expected to be pretty high profile. The good news is, it’s a great way to raise a lot of money in a short period of time, but you’re going to have to enlist the help of a fundraising committee, and make sure that you have a significant number of sponsors to help with your fundraising event. Here’s how to put it together:


Contact a golf course for your fundraiser

Sign a contract with the golf course where you plan on hosting your event to make sure that you have the date secured for your fundraiser. You should let the golf course know how many people are tentatively expected for your fundraiser so that they can prepare. Make sure you have a deadline date set up so that you can give the golf course final numbers for your fundraiser. 


Create a planning document for your fundraising committee

The planning document should involve everything you need to make your fundraiser a success. Organize what has to be done and assign committee members for your fundraiser. The planning document should include all the information for the entire fundraiser, including fundraising goals and participants. 


Decide what fee you will charge for your fundraiser

Golf tournament fees are usually pretty high. Keep your fundraising supporters in mind when you are planning your tournament, and make sure that the fee for the tournament reflects both the cause you are raising money for and the effort that is being put into the tournament. 


Assemble a sponsorship packet for your fundraiser

A sponsorship packet is extremely important for your fundraiser. Sponsors need to know what will be included with their sponsorship package for your event. It really helps if you have tiers for your fundraiser, so that sponsors can decide on what tier of fundraising works best for them. 


Create fliers to hand our for your fundraiser

It’s important to publicize your fundraiser as much as possible. Have fliers that you hand out to members of your community, as well as an online version that can be shared on social media. Give flyers to committee members so they can put them up in their places of work and promote your fundraiser


Make sure you have food at your fundraiser

Golf tournaments are expected to be entire day events, which means you should have meals available for participants at your fundraising event. Factor this in to both the fee for your fundraising event, and your sponsorship efforts. Contact local businesses and see if they would be willing to donate items to your fundraising event.
