Golf Tournament Planning Center

My name is Michael Pryor. I have worked in the golf business for thirty years (since I was in college) and am a 20 year PGA Member, certified in Golf Operations and Teaching & Coaching. Throughout my career I’ve hosted 1,000s of golf tournaments. I’ve worked with and hosted just about every type of tournament you could imagine – corporate, charity and competitive tournaments including PGA Tour events and USGA Championship tournaments. 

Over the years, it had been my experience that many of the tournaments (primarily corporate or charity) that we hosted were being hosted by someone who was looking to do something good to give back to their community or they had been tasked with hosting a golf tournament for their place of business – whether it be an employee appreciation event or client appreciation/networking event. In each case, often times I would hear “I’ve never hosted a golf tournament before” and was providing these new (in some cases reluctant) tournament planners with the support and information they needed to host a successful tournament. I would work hand in hand with these individuals from our initial contact through event follow-up (and many times starting the planning for the following year’s event). 

The Golf Tournament Planning Guide and the Golf Tournament Planning Center was created to be a resource for those wanting to host an enjoyable, organized, successful golf tournament. Throughout the Golf Tournament Planning Center you will have the opporutnity to access information that will help even the most inexperienced golf tournament planner look like a professional. Resources such as: 

  • Tournament Tips & Best Practices
  • Tournament Course Directory
  • Tournament Gifts & Prizes
  • Tournament Resources (Signage, Banners & Miscellaneous Operational Items)
  • The Golf Tournament Planning Guide ($29.95)
  • Access to Golf Professionals to answer your questions and support you in your tournament planning and execution

From course selection through the post tournament review process, we’ve made the resources available to you, and are here to help your tournament be a success. Shouldn’t you be able to enjoy your golf tournament along with all of your players and volunteers? A well planned, well organized event will help you to do just that!

Please let us know how we can help – send us your questions, we’d be happy to help you in any way that we can.
