Eat While You Play
Every game when played in a group needs just two more things to make it more lively and enjoyable: food and drink! Why should mini golf be left out, right? If you've planned a charity golf tournament, then this is a perfect way to get the participants to shell out some extra money. With the permission of the owner, you can arrange for different booths with an assortment of foods and refreshments to be served, while the highly competitive tournament is on. No one can resist a little nibbling in the midst of a crowd, especially when games are also a part of the equation.
Raise Some Money
Mini golf tournaments are one of the best ways to organize a fundraiser for whatever reason. If it's for a club in your school, you can have a side by side exhibition of what the club is all about. This will encourage people to fork out some money for a cause. If it's for another cause, you can have particular holes sponsored by local companies. When people putt in those holes, they win a prize and the amount gets donated to the cause.
Another thing that mini golf tournaments are great for, is to make special occasions even more special. Birthdays, anniversaries, retirement parties, etc. are all great occasions to have mini golf tournaments. You can make a day of it and have a picnic before and after the tournament. The guest of honor (read birthday person, anniversary couple or retiring colleague) will play the tournament and every time he/she or they putt a hole they get a gift. This way, they have to play until they win all the gifts!
Raising money by way of auction has always been a splendid tactic. Use a mini golf tournament to further enhance the success of the auction that you want to hold. How? Well, entertainment always seems to be a major issue at fundraisers, doesn't it? So, instead of having just live music, have a fun mini golf tournament in the background of a silent auction. This way, people will bid on what they like while they enjoy their rounds of golf.
Sometimes, the more challenging something is, the more enjoyable it is. What could be more challenging in mini golf than hampering the players' vision?!? Yes, you got it right! Organize a mini golf tournament at night! Choose a new moon night to make things trickier. Of course you'll have a well-lit golf course, but this will just bring in a little more hardship into the game. You can liven up the atmosphere with some good music and a dance party adjacent to the tournament.
Well, there you go! Didn't we tell you there are some really simple, yet fun ways to transform the usual mini golf tournament into something more interesting and enjoyable? Try these out and have a great game! Good luck!
