Golf Fundraising Ideas

There are golf groups, golf societies, golf teams, golf leagues and golf clubs (pun intended), but whatever you call your group, whether your club is for ladies only, or golf-community members only, or just a bunch of friends who like to get together to play the beloved, and often frustrating game of golf, at some point, chances are you’re going to want to throw a fundraiser to raise money for your group. Clubs raise money for green fees, cart rentals, social events and tournament fees. Some golf groups throw a fundraiser for local charities or a member in need. And of course charitable organizations of all kinds often turn to golf tournaments as a fundraising event for their group. Fundraising can be quite challenging at time, almost as challenging as the game itself!

One of the biggest decisions is often deciding what type of fundraiser to do. In Ardmore, PA, Radnor High School girls’ golf team seniors played a 104-hole marathon fundraiser to benefit Women Golfer’s Give Back, an organization founded to give back to the community and promote the game of golf to deserving young girls. In Gloucester, NJ, the Incarnation Community Golf Classic fundraiser, benefited the Angela Guttuso Fund for a graduate that suffered traumatic brain injury after a hit-and-run accident. Fundraisers by other Golf teams include golf tournament, celebrity autographs, snow golf, thons, restaurant nights, raffles, and product sales.

You can also choose from a wide variety of golf group DIY fundraising ideas to supplement your program. How about Cookie Sales, Pie Fights, Nude Calendar, Kiss the Cow, or thons of every type? Perhaps one of these successful and creative ideas can be adapted for your group’s fundraiser.

Miniature Golf Tourney – Reserve a miniature golf course for your youth group fundraising event. Have each student ask people to sponsor them per hole they play. (.10¢ per hole.) Then, run the tournament just like an Iron Man competition except you play on the miniature golf course. Play 100 holes in two hours or as many as you can do in two hours. Read more…

Equipment Swap – This fundraiser will work for many different sports. Each year in Bend, Oregon, the ski season kicks off with the Annual Skyliners Ski Swap, a fundraiser for the Mt. Bachelor Ski Education Foundation (MBSEF). Attendees can sell and buy used and new alpine and cross country ski equipment, snowboards, winter clothing, ice skates and other winter recreational items. Read more…

Night Golf Tournament – Made arrangements with a golf course to have a fundraising golf tournament. Arrange for reduced greens fees to be paid by your organization and solicit donated prizes for winners. Arrange for volunteers to handle registration, watch holes, and act as referees regarding rules of play. Charge $25 -$50 or more per 2 person team (to be paired with players of similar ability); $50-$100 or more for foursomes. Read more…
