    My regional office are supporting a small local charity for the next two years and my director wants to hold a charity golf day with an aim to raise around £2-5k. We are going to invite a mixture of suppliers and customers and we are going to ask people to pay £250-500 to submit a team of four players.
    We will also offer things like sponsorship of holes and a dinner and auction in the evening.
    We have a venue in mind, but I am just looking for any advice from anybody with experience of this sort of event as I am not a golfer and this is my first fundraising event too!

    Hi Katy,

    You can get loads of advice from the golf club you intend to use about the actual games etc but the ones I organise are 4 balls with the stapleford rules and 3/4 handicap and we start from the 1st and 10th hols which gives 15 tee off times so a maximum of 60 players. I don’t play golf either so I have to get someone else to score etc.

    Also find out if you can do a shot gun start (this is where all the teams start at the same time on all 18 holes) from the 1st and 10th holes or just one after the other from the first as this will determin your maximum number of players. Shotguns normaly cost more as you take up the holecourse for the day.

    Have you considered wether you will allow individuals to compete? or will it just be 4balls? as if you have a lot of singles you will need to pair them up on their handicaps.

    Don’t forget about refreshments and a presentation dinner. Depending on how posh you want to go you can have a rolling buffet and presentations when the last has come home or a posh eveing do. If you have a posh evening do you might like to consider a club with a hotel.

    Hope this helps.

    Sorry, I didn’t spot you wanted to do an auction on a dinner do!

    If possible try to get local bigwigs or celebs to attend or to take part (for free) which encourages people to want to take part. The team is then 3 places but for the same money.

    Start righting to celbs and your suppliers/contacts (if appropriat) to try to get things to auction.

    What is the charity. If it is a childrens charity you could ask the children to ‘do a bit of art’ for you to auction. That always gets the heart strings going.

    Anyway someone else has probably got better ideas than me but you can message me if you like.

    How are things progressing? Have you met any obstacles yet? I have a couple of ideas for you if the event is still going ahead, and you haven’t torn out all your hair in frustration!! Regards,

    Well the club is booked for a date in September and everything is still going ahead fine, I’m planning a meeting with the Pro to discuss optional extras e.g. trick shots, and I am going to ask my colleages to draw up a list of people they would want to invite.
    Next I’m going to do some sort of break-even chart to show the financial situation.
    However I would be open to any ideas!

    If you want to organize a successful fund raising you should first think of a location. A good idea would be to find a nice resort that would fully accommodate your guests. Since you’re talking about a fund raising associated with golf, your safest bet would be a golf resort, with a welcoming golf course.
