Golf Contests & Events

Thursday, October 5, 2017

Contests will make your golf tournament exciting and more enjoyable for your participants. We speak a lot about our Hole In One contests but their are a lot more activities you can provide for your golfers during their tournament. Not to mention, it is a great way to sell additional sponsorships. We have listed a few various contests that you can hold to build excitement and profits for your next event:

This contest is held on a par 3. Prizes range from cash winnings to new automobiles and more. If a contestant makes a hole-in-one they win the prize offered at that hole. Some tournaments will have the prize donated from a local company. If your event cannot have the prize donated, have the hole-in-one contest guaranteed for the value of the prize.

The shootout is a new concept and a high profile event at golf tournaments everywhere. Each of the golfers will have the chance to make a hole-in-one for a much larger prize than offered in the traditional hole-in-one contest. Prize values can be as high as $1,000,000!! This is a great opportunity to gather all the participants outside after golf and before the dinner/awards ceremony. This is another opportunity for a sponsor to gain tremendous exposure and for you to make more profit.

Putting Contest
A putting contest can be held before, during or after your golf tournament. The putting contest will serve as an additional fundraiser by charging the golfers for each attempt to qualify for the grand prize. Most putting contests offer a grand prize up to $10,000.

Longest Drive
The longest drive event will be the most recognizable contest to your golfers. Choose a hole that is long and fairly straight. The object is to hit the longest and straightest drive during the course of play. In order to win the contest, a golfer’s shot must be in the fairway when it comes to rest. A marker is provided by the golf course to mark the distance of the longest drive and identify the winner. You should have a contest for men and women and can have as many as 4 contest holes. 2 for men and 2 for women.

Closest to the Pin
Also held on a par 3, this contest can be run at the same time as your hole-in-one contest. The object is to be the golfer that hits the ball closest to the hole for the day. A marker will be provided by the golf course for golfers to identify the closest shot to the hole. It is a good idea to have a measuring tape near the green in case two shots are very close.

Straightest Drive
This contest is held on a hole that is long and fairly straight. Draw a chalk line down the center of the fairway. The object is to be the golfer that hits the ball closest to the line. A marker will be provided by the golf course to identify the winner. This is another chance to sell a sponsorship and add to your profit.

There are many different contests and events golfers can participate in during the course of play. If you need help finding the right one for your event feel free to give us a call. Reach us at 888-882-5440 or email us at
