I have been in a lot of golf tournaments and I am always amazed at how many companies sponsor golf holes, usually at great expense and all they get is a little sign. What if you were actually at the golf hole?
I like the idea of the sponsor actually sitting at the hole – in person. Then make it fun for the golfers.
- Set up a couple of croquet wickets as a putting course on the tee and have the teams “putt through” while they wait to go.
- Take a video, digital photo or Polariod photograph of the foursome and ask for their email address so you can send it to them. Or play the video at the banquet.
- Mail them a framed photo.
- Have each foursome drive marshmallows or cotton swabs while they are waiting. Farthest drive gets a prize from you–visor, club cover, etc.
Imagine the impact you would make over just having a sign.
