Hosting a golf tournament can be a fun team building event, not just for participants, but also for those volunteering to ensure the event is a success. While running a golf tournament can be fun, there is a lot of work that goes into successfully managing the tournament. At the end of the day, a fun, successful tournament can strengthen working relationships and lead to new friendships among those that worked together to achieve the goals of the tournament.
The value of group collaboration to achieve a stated goal can lead to future successes, both with the tournament as well as with other endeavors. Golf tournaments are also:
- A great opportunity to generate some exposure and “good will” for your group throughout the community by providing a “fun event” for people to participate in while networking and perhaps raising money for a good cause.
- A great way to make money. By hosting a golf tournament there are many opportunities to generate revenues, however you have to also understand that there are costs – significant costs involved in running an tournament so it is important to understand all of the opportunities as well as the requirements and commitments involved.
- A great opportunity to network within the local community and meet potential new clients/customers and/or strengthen relationships with current customers.
- A golf tournament is a great way to show your appreciation to customers and/or team members by providing them with a fun day on the golf course.
