ProAm golf tournaments are incredibly fun events with the potential to draw lots of excited spectators and participants. Golf fans will be drawn by the professional players who show up to play, while amateur players will bring friends and family to watch them test their skills against pro golfers. Plus, you can add the intrigue of an exciting prize to the appeal of the tournament itself and heighten the drama in the days leading up to the game.
If you’re looking to add more intrigue to your next event, consider offering some of these grand prizes.
Prize Ideas for ProAm Golf Tournaments
So, what kind of prizes should you give out? Here are some ideas that you can use for your next ProAm Tournament.
It's common for golf tournaments to give out a large sum of money as a grand prize, with smaller sums for lesser prizes. A cash prize is a low-risk option because everyone could always use more money and it allows the winner to do whatever they like with their winnings.
Cash is a fine prize, however, it isn't always the most creative option.
Pre-paid trip packages are popular prizes for game shows, raffles, and tournaments. For a golf tournament, why not offer a trip to a famous golf course, with a stay at a beautiful hotel, travel fare, and games of golf? Trips to well-known golf resorts like French Lick would make excellent prizes.
You've probably seen a brand-new car wrapped in a bow at an event and thought, "I'd like to be driving that." A shiny car or SUV will certainly pique the interest of an audience, especially if they can see it in front of them at the event. Just make sure nobody goes up to touch it!
High-end Golf Merchandise
If you're interested in attracting the attention of golf fans, try offering some top-of-the-line golf equipment! Maybe you could offer a set of the best performance golf clubs or golf gear, like Cobra, Taylormade, even packs of Bridgestone golf balls.
If you'd like to give your winners more freedom to choose the equipment they want, you can also give out gift certificates. Gift certificates are also good for lower placed prizes, as you can easily choose how much money goes on a gift certificate.
These are just a few prize ideas that are popular for ProAm tournaments. But feel free to think outside the box! Maybe you could offer high-end electronics to the tournament winner, or a luxury subscription box service. What would be exciting to you?
