golf-picHosting golf tournaments are truly a fun fairway to fundraising. Schupepe Tents can provide marquees and branded tents to help promote your charity and your company’s logo. We’ve compiled a list of things to remember when hosting your next golf tournament for a fundraising event; as well as a list of some of Auckland’s most popular golf courses. We can help you pitch your tent while pitching in and helping the charity of your choice.

DO YOUR RESEARCH:
Find out when other golf tournaments are taking place in your area. If there are too many going on at the same you risk the chance of low attendance which will not bode well for your fundraising goals.

PICK THE RIGHT LOCATION:
Thankfully there are a multitude of beautiful courses to choose from in the Auckland area. You can pick from the list provided below or do some independent research to find a place that suits your needs.

PROVIDE SHELTER, BEVERAGES & FOOD:
Keeping your participants happy is paramount to any successful fundraising event. This is also a great opportunity to promote your company by using branded tents or marquees – spreading them out along the golf course for the participant’s convenience.

PRIZES & RAFFLES:
On-course contests are great for entertainment and also a way to increase funds for your charity.

SET LIMITS:
It is important to set a time limit and to not overbook. Most tournaments will have a cut off of approximately 128 players so that foursomes are not doubled up on par threes.

PROVIDE GIFT BAGS:
Make sure everyone feels like a winner! Include information about the charity that you are representing, so that people are reminded of the good cause.
