Holding a corporate charity golf day is a great way of building relationships with both your customers and your suppliers, but many organisations are put off by the amount of work involved. This is where we step in. We can’t guarantee the weather but we can make sure your days runs without a hitch and is promoted and branded accordingly.
Last week we organised and hosted a corporate golf day, raising funds for a local charity which enabled all of the key figures within the organisation to take part in the event and build relationships with their contacts.
On arrival at just after 9am our team set up the registration desk, put sponsorship banners and pin flags out on the course, set up the halfway house, organised the golf pro, directed the photographer, displayed the raffle and auction items, completed the goodie bags and then welcomed the players as they started to arrive.
The day kicked off with guests arriving from 10.30am, who were greeted by one of our team, registered and then directed to the refreshments. Once all of the players had arrived, there was a general address by the chairman informing them of the format of the day, which was followed by lunch.
The klaxon started the players off at 1pm, with each team having their photos taken at Hole 2 where they also had the chance to ‘Beat the pro’. With 2 other competitions also taking place on the course, it was a busy day, which included visits from ‘Little M’, the charity mascot, and from ‘Wolfie’ from Warrington Wolves, who had a team playing in the competition.
The teams started to arrive back at the club house at around 5.30pm, where they handed in their score cards and freshened up before dinner. We worked with the golf pro to finalise the winning team and the competition winners before dinner at 7pm.
The teams all enjoyed a 3 course dinner which we had specifically chosen, and the winners were announced and awarded their trophies. Following the dinner our auctioneer, actor Jack Marsden, took to the floor to ensure that the maximum amount of money was raised for a very worthy cause, and then he drew the raffle to finish off the evening. The majority of prizes were sourced by our team prior to the day. At the end of the event our team ensured the venue was cleaned and all of the necessary items used on the day were transported back.
Before the end of the event there was talk about next year’s event, and we already have a few plans in progress.
