Putting Contests are the most popular pre-event activity available for your golf event – an exciting competition for your players waiting to tee off. For fundraising events, you can raise money by charging the player a fee to participate and also by selling a sponsorship for the putting contest.
Usually, Putting Contests are one of two formats. The first format offers a guaranteed prize to the putting contest winner. The second format allows you to offer the opportunity to win a cash prize for one final contestant if he scores the putt. You purchase the Putting Contest, the lucky finalist makes the putt and we provide the prize! Everyone’s happy! Most events will have golfers pay an entry fee to the contest. No matter what format you choose, you can hold a qualifying round, and then have the 5-8 closest putts advance to the finals where they compete for the putting contest prize.
Putting contests are also an excellent sponsorship opportunity. You should consider inviting your sponsor to participate in the putting contest by helping measure the putts – this provides added recognition for the sponsor.
