Holding a golf tournament for your staff outing is a trend that has caught the fancy of many corporates. Even non profit organizations are relying on golf tournaments to raise money for charity. After all, a laid back game of golf, under bright sunlight, is enjoyed by all and sundry! To make such events even more interesting, the organizers always keep some prizes for the winners as well as gifts and takeaways for the participants. So, if you are planning such an event yourself, here is a list of some unique ideas, which you can consider.
Golf tournament prizes and gifts should be chosen keeping the budget, event as well as the people they are meant for, in mind. Golf accessories, such as golf gloves, golf t-shirts, water bottles, golf towels, golf umbrellas, and a pack of golf balls, make for good gifts. If you plan to give golf accessories to the winners, a gift basket, which has a number of such accessories, gift wrapped separately, will be ideal! Such prizes and gifts keep the memory of the event alive, which the participants cherish forever!
Golf First Aid Kit
A golf first aid kit, that includes items such as antibacterial wipes, sunblock, skin soothing moisturizer, bandage, golf towels, and golf t-shirts amongst other things, makes for a useful gift. Every time the participants use the items in the kit, they will be reminded of the golf event. If the event that you are holding is for your clients, having your company's logo engraved on some of the items in the kit is a good idea!
It is not compulsory that gifts for a golf tournament should be related to the game. Gifts which the participants can use in their homes, such as beer mugs, photo frames, decorative cigar boxes - all engraved with the organization's logo, make for excellent gifts for such an event too. Home gifts go especially well with charity golf tournaments.
If the tournament is for the employees, corporates can keep prizes like the best golfer, the worst golfer, the most enthusiastic participant and the overall winner. Gift vouchers for shopping at a retail store, vouchers for a family dinner at a restaurant or a voucher for a relaxing day at a spa, etc., can be awarded to the recipients of these prizes.
Gift the participants a pair of watches. Have the company's logo engraved on the dial, along with the date of the tournament. A few fun words such as 'sporty' or 'adventurous' can be printed on the strap of the watches. If ordered in bulk, this gift will not cost much. At the same time, will make for a cool, useful gift!
Durable duffel golf bags are another excellent choice for giving tournament winners. They can be purchased for as little as twenty-five dollars on the Internet. There is a huge variety in duffel golf bags to choose from, right from the travel bags which a person can carry on his shoulders to a standing, trolley one. Choose the one depending upon your budget.
Career Enhancement Gifts
Certificates for participation in workshops and skills training seminars are some gifts which can greatly benefit the participants professionally. So, corporates conducting a golf tournament event for their employees, can actually use this platform to offer them opportunities to upgrade their skills and qualifications, by way of such gift certificates.
You can either consider gifting the participants the above suggested gifts or you can do some more research and choose something else. In the end, whatever gift and prizes that you zero in on, make sure that they are such that the participants are reminded of the fun that they had at the event every time they look at them!
