It's important to have a golf event website that will accept online registrations and payments from players and sponsors. We see a significant increase in player and sponsor participation in golf outings, tournaments and events that offer the ability to pay online by credit card. The transactions are quick, easy and secure. The Golf Digest Planner will let you use PayPal Business for easy payment processing.
Planning a successful golf event, tournament or outing usually take 6 months or more. The Golf Digest Tournament Planner will send you task lists based on your event date to keep you on schedule. Assign tasks to committees and volunteers to make sure everything is completed in time for event day.
Players and sponsors will be more likely to support your next event if they have a great experience at this one. Successful events provide player arrival gifts including customized shirts and golf bags. They also schedule many contests and events including hole in one, putting, long drive and closest to the pin contests and shootouts. Contests and events in the Golf Digest Tournament Shop include your prizes and customized full-color signs. You can also order your trophies and awards.
Print out player pairing lists from the Golf Digest Planner before your event. Be sure to print a copy by player last name and company name so your check-in and registration process is quick and efficient. You can also print out players and sponsors that have paid online - this will help collect any funds that may be due prior to your event start time.
For many golf events, sponsors provide much of the revenue. Be sure to offer a variety of sponsorship opportunities - including online registration - on your Golf Digest Planner website.
Use our built-in e-mail templates to promote sponsorship opportunities to your target lists which can be easily uploaded into the Golf Digest Planner.
