As a tournament director, you’re constantly challenged to come up with new and exciting contests at your event. One of the most exciting promotions at a golf tournament is a putting contest.
There are a number of different ways that you can incorporate a putting contest into your next event. Here are just a few examples:
- Have the closest to the pin on all of the par 3’s get a chance to win the grand prize. After everyone is done and you announce who the 4 contestants are you can go straight to the putting green and have the crowd gather round while the 4 contestants take their chance at winning the grand prize.
- Allow all of the contestants to have a chance to win. During registration and prior to the start of the tournament, each contestant would get a chance to make a series of putts (10’, 30’, 50’). Should one of your contestants make all 3 putts they would win the grand prize.
- Include it as a raffle item. If their raffle # is drawn that player would get the chance to make a 50’ putt to win the grand prize.
For the shootout competition you will have a pre-selected number of participants attempting to hit a hole-in-one for a selected prize.
Shootouts are a great way to offer a high dollar prize value at a minimum cost to you. When a shootout contest is run correctly, you can add a lot of excitement to your tournament and help to raise participation year after year. You are able to qualify your shootout participants in any way, so be creative to maximize your shootouts potential benefit. Invite golfers to participate by holding a raffle and give one lucky golfer the chance to win big by hitting a hole-in-one!
