You can make the teams to ensure you get the right people talking.
Show off your company & get your name out there. If you’re proud of your company, hosting a corporate golf day is pretty cool. When everyone’s having a good time, it’s the perfect opportunity to get some photographs and videos for your website or social media. Associating your brand with positivity and smiley face is definitely a win.
A great way to show appreciation to current clients. Every client has a choice of who to get the products you sell from. They choose you and in many cases they choose you over and over again.
Hosting a corporate golf day or another type of day for your clients is a great way just to show a bit of appreciation. And remember if everyone loves the day then the cost of the day is minimal.
Let’s be honest, your staff work hard for you. Ok well most of them do. Did you know that it’s said 80% of the work done in a business is done by 20% of the people?
Well, get that 20% of people and even the rest if you’re the generous type and host a golf day.
Local charities are always in need of help and what better way to help them out than with some donations on your golf day.
You can choose a variety of ways to donate too. One of the best ways is to get a prize donated and offer people the chance to win it on a Par 3 with a closet the flag competition.
Win some pretty epic prizes. You can get some prizes donated but to bring the glitz to your corporate golf day, you need to bring out the big guns. Think about how much you’d be looking forward to the day and now think about how much better it would be if there was the chance to win some money. And we’re not just talking about a £50 voucher for the local boozer.
You can have the options to win £5,000, £10,000 and even up to £20,000 on some corporate golf days just for getting a hole in one.Yes, the odds are heavily against you but you have to be in it to win it. And if you are in it, you’re in with a chance.
If you’re planning a corporate golf day and you want to save some cash and sort everything out yourself, we’re also here to help. Here we lay out some of the most important aspects which will help you come up with a plan for your corporate golf days.
Set a budget and stick to it. Not too sure how much is should cost? Try asking people who’ve hosted in them in the past. Generally speaking you should be setting a budget of around £1000 – £50000 depending on the amount of people going and the level of event management you want. If you’re a smaller business and your budget is tight look in to smaller golf clubs in your area.
For businesses with bigger budgets, you have your choice of the better courses including some of the best courses around the UK.
You want a venue that show’s your business in the best light. The venue is most dependent on the budget but don’t be put off if you’re on a smaller budget.
The devil is in the detail and that’s definitely right when it comes to booking any type of event. Double checking and even triple checking everything is in place weeks before the day will definitely make everything run as smooth as possible.
Don’t leave organising everything until the last minute.
Make sure the people you want there are there & make sure you get the ball rolling months before the event. Preplanning will help make sure your date is in their diary.
You don’t want to need it but it’s always better to be safe than sorry. With the weather in the UK being so unpredictable, there’s always a chance no matter what time of year you’re planning your corporate golf day, the day could have to be cancelled. There’s website’s online who offer event cancellation insurance should the unexpected happen.
That’s why it’s important to have a plan B.
Hosting your day at a country club which has several activities for guests is definitely an option to consider. Depending on your event, you may have everyone who just wants to hit the course but for days where there’s other guests consider asking them and giving them a few choices of what they’d like to do.
Take the steps to make sure your golf day is professional. You need to have someone in charge of the day who know’s about golf and can help the day run smoothly. It’s not just the golf you have to worry about, how will you greet the guests, where do they go when they arrive? What about after the golf is over, what’s the plan for that?
Yes, the golf day is all about having fun but one of the main reasons for organising your golf day is to get your business more exposure. Going the extra mile will always impress people and here it doesn’t have to be too much. Branded banners, flag sticks, tees and balls all add to the glamour of your event.
Getting stuff personalised is a great way to stand out and there are so many different options you can choose. If you’ve got the budget you get-go high class with the polos. For example, one of our clients chooses to get their clothing done by Richard Smith Bespoke which turned out to be a huge talking point and something everyone loved.
And let’s be honest, you’ve always wanted your company name on your balls, so get it done. Remember though to make them identifiable. You’ll want to get a few numbers on, perhaps 1-10 if there’s a lot of people or just 1-5 if there are around 50 people. Remember to get some pens too, so players can easily identify theirs.
How many times have you been at an event and the prizes weren’t even worth entering it for. You can get your event sponsored by some local businesses and get them to throw in a prize.
But what’s better than a decent prize? How about cold, hard cash. Did you know you can offer a cash prize of up to £50,000 without actually having to have £50,000 to give someone?
That’s right, from about £350, you can offer a prize of up to about £5,000. And think about that. If there are 100 people at the event that’s £3.50 per person. And for the £50,000 prize, your paying £7.50 per person if there are 100 people.
Do be cautious though. With the larger prizes there does need to be someone official there to witness it, so always make sure you read the terms and conditions before offering any prizes.
