Hosting a charity golf outing is a good way to raise funds for a worthy cause. But arranging this kind of event can take a lot of work. Fortunately, the Quail Hollow Golf Course has expertise in planning events and can take the stress out of hosting a charity tournament. Here are five key considerations when you’re planning a charity golf outing.
- The course. Many people simply book the cheapest course they can find, thinking that money saved on expenses means more money for charity. But a quality course will draw more people to the outing, raising more money. Quail Hollow offers a more challenging course than smaller local clubs, and golfers who love the sport will be sure to sign on.
- Staff. Just as important as the course itself is the staff. That’s another advantage of a golf outing at Quail Hollow. The friendly staff can work with your event planners, helping them organize your outing, as well as providing services and amenities beyond the simple use of facilities.
- Volunteers. A charity event depends on lots of help from volunteers. There are dozens of little jobs that need to be done over the course of the day. Everything — from checking people in at the beginning to handing out raffle prizes at the end — needs a volunteer, and good communication with those volunteers is vital. Meeting beforehand to explain what each person’s job is and how to do it will improve the outing for everyone.
- Golfers. How many golfers are needed for the event? How many does the facility require for use of the course? How many people need to register to offset the costs of the event?
- Donations. This is the core of any charity event — getting people to give to the cause. Businesses and other organizations are usually willing to sponsor a golfer or a particular hole.
