10 Great Golf Gifts and Giveaways for Golf Tournaments
From golf balls to coffee mugs, golf prizes for tournaments should be memorable
Executing a successful fundraiser is a specialty in the event planning industry, and raffles, giveaways, gifts, and prizes are some of the most basic components of planning a great golf tournament fundraiser.
From "hole challenge" prizes to awards for the tournament winners, it's important to select golf gifts and accessories that will please the crowd. Gifts and giveaways should provide additional incentives to participate and to continue to donate.
The Titleist Pro V1 is considered by serious golfers to be the highest quality and most popular golf ball available. You might consider buying a sleeve of three for each golfer and placing them as a gift on golf carts.
Or you might choose to award only your largest playing sponsors with these prized balls, depending on the size of your budget.
The Titleist NXT Extreme is a nice quality golf ball for players of all levels if you want to save a few dollars over the Pro V1. It's still of great quality. These balls can be a great gift for all your tournament's registered golfers.
Golf Divot Repair Tool
Using a golf divot is good golf etiquette, and many courses offer a divot tool as part of the greens fee. A golf divot repair tool is a basic golf accessory.
Find one of good quality that your golfers will want to keep for future use. These are inexpensive items, but they're well received, so make sure you have enough for all golfers.
Golf First Aid Kit
It is a nice touch to offer each golfer a golf first aid kit that includes a range of items such as insect repellant, antibacterial wipes, bandage strips, aloe, or sunscreen.
Place the kits directly on the golf cart of each player so participants can avoid that nasty sunburn or mosquito bites before the big raffle. They'll have them in hand on the course.
Golf towels come in two sizes: small and large. The small towel is easy to carry, either in the pocket or clicked to the belt with a carabiner. They're great for cleaning off golf balls and clubs as necessary.
A larger towel can be used to cover the golf bag.
You can give a golf umbrella to all your golfers, or use it as a prize item, depending on your budget. Golfers are made of sturdy stock when it comes to weather. They'll play in just about any rainy condition, so this gift should be much appreciated.
Be sure to select a larger umbrella—62 inches is a good size.
Golf Duffel Bag
Golf duffel bags make a nice gift for golfers because they can use them on or off the course. Make sure the ones you chose are made of a durable material, and consider having the tournament name and date emblazoned on them. They'll be commemorative.
Golf Stand Bag
Most people really enjoy their golf bags, but many would be willing to trade up for stand bags if they had a chance to win one of high quality. Search for a very high-end bag to entice the players to want to win, particularly if you're looking to offer one as the best score prize.
A putter is a great prize option for golf outings. You can award one to the top-scoring golfer, or to the winner of the longest drive contest.
Research for top quality. You have many options, but look for a putter with a strong brand name, such as Scotty Cameron (Titleist), TaylorMade, or Ping.
Table Tennis Racket
Golf tournaments frequently offer consolation prizes to the team or individual with the worst golf score. The Prince table tennis racket might be a great item for those who enjoy table tennis, and it could serve as a nice consolation prize for those who achieve the least impressive scores as well.
