Golf Events to Benefit AICR
From tournaments to simple outings, a golf event can be a fun and meaningful way to support a great cause. Golf events may be held in honor of someone battling cancer, in memory of someone who has passed away, or simply to promote cancer research and education.
Simple Golf Events
If you don't have the time or resources to plan a full-scale tournament, a smaller golf event can be fun meaningful and successful. Here are some great ideas of golf events to hold in your area.
- On the putting green: There are a number of games you can play on the putting green, such as the “Chip In Challenge”, among others. Ask a local course if you can run an event on the putting green for a day, a half of a day or even a couple of hours. Set it up yourself and invite your friends and colleagues. Make it open to other guests as well to raise more money!
- At the driving range: A private course may allow you to run a charitable long-drive competition from one of the driving tees, or close a hole down for a period of time for your use entirely. A public course might appreciate the publicity from such a competition. Run the game at the driving range for a day, or even once a month during the season.
- A round of mini golf: If you don’t have access to a full course, ask your local miniature golf course about their rules for holding events.
- As a group of friends: Meeting a group for your regular match? Ask everyone to contribute an extra $20 on top of playing fees for a day and make it a game to benefit AICR.
