Need Fun Ideas For Golf Tournament Hole Sponsor
Posted by Anonymous on

My company always sponsors a hole at the annual Chamber of Commerce golf tournament. We have the option to have an interactive activity at the hole to engage the players. I'm looking for ideas for what I can do at the hole that will be fun and memorable for the players. In the past we've done a longest drive contest, but using marshmallows instead of golf balls. Does anyone have any other ideas along that line that they would share with me?

What is the theme of the Chamber Golf Outing. When I was in the Corporate world, I coordinated several of these...and actually won two years in a row as the favorite which gave us free sponsorship the following years.
If you have a theme to play with it is much easier to come up with a plan.

It would be a big help if you let us know what your company sells, then we could tie in an idea with it. In the interim I suggest:
"Tea Time" - serve tea and dessert at a table near the actual tee. Hand out golf tees with your company name imprinted.
"Hole In One" - string up a pinata and let people take a swing at it. They can "take a swing" and try to tear a "hole in one".

How about the ole' exploding golf ball. That is always fun.
The victim could get a prize from your company - like a new hybrid club, new golf bag, new shoes - something that has some value and is a *surprise* for the team which will get them talking about your company.
You could design it so out of how many foursomes come through only a few will win.
Some other "gag" gifts are here:
good luck :-)

How about something related to office furnishings and supplies... for example, a game of musical chairs (with a prize, and using some of your office chairs)? Maybe something related to the movie Office Space (a few of the jokes could be part of a game -- I'm thinking of the two "Bobs" or the red stapler). Or something related to the TV show "The Office"? One more idea -- maybe a "Worst Case Scenario: Office" game. You could give the participants some kind of scenario and make them figure out how to get through it (it would have to be something fairly simple, with not too many choices).

Create a typical office desk setting...on the green. Label each of the items on the setup with a point/prize value. Give everyone a chance to drive or chip to the setting, and what they hit, they get the prize. Of course, you won't want to use your showroom items - visit the local Salvation Army for a setup that you won't mind trashing. Make sure that your company name is clearly displayed on the desk.

What about getting a few massage therapists w/ massage chairs. They can give a short teaser massage at the hole and maybe one of the four players can win a longer (15-20 minute) massage to be given at the end of the play. Or maybe a gift certificate to be used at a later date.
In my area many massage therapists would love this type of opportunity to network w/ prime prospects. It's a good way for them to pick up qualified clients. Some may do it just for the contacts... or you could possibly trade w/ massage therapist for their services... a desk chair, a file cabinet, etc. Is there a massage school in your area?
You could tie it together w/ a theme about relieving the stresses of work.
