A great way to show appreciation to current clients

A great way to show appreciation to current clients

Every client has a choice of who to get the products you sell from. They choose you and in many cases they choose you over and over again.

Hosting a corporate golf day or another type of day for your clients is a great way just to show a bit of appreciation.

And remember if everyone loves the day then the cost of the day is minimal.

Thank your staff & strengthen relationships

Let’s be honest, your staff work hard for you. Ok well most of them do. Did you know that it’s said 80% of the work done in a business is done by 20% of the people?

Well, get that 20% of people and even the rest if you’re the generous type and host a golf day.

Help out a local charity

Local charities are always in need of help and what better way to help them out than with some donations on your golf day.

You can choose a variety of ways to donate too. One of the best ways is to get a prize donated and offer people the chance to win it on a Par 3 with a closet the flag competition.

Win some pretty epic prizes

Win some pretty epic prizes

You can get some prizes donated but to bring the glitz to your corporate golf day, you need to bring out the big guns.

Think about how much you’d be looking forward to the day and now think about how much better it would be if there was the chance to win some money.

And we’re not just talking about a £50 voucher for the local boozer.

You can have the options to win £5,000, £10,000 and even up to £20,000 on some corporate golf days just for getting a hole in one.

Yes, the odds are heavily against you but you have to be in it to win it. And if you are in it, you’re in with a chance.

Now what about organising the day?

Here at TGS Events we can organise your day. Sometimes though there’s small businesses who’d rather have less glitz and organise it themselves.

That’s fine too

Setting a budget

Set a budget and stick to it. Not too sure how much is should cost? Try asking people who’ve hosted in them in the past.

Generally speaking you should be setting a budget of around £1000 – £5000 depending on the amount of people which will give you sufficient funds for a great day.

Plan, Plan and Plan some more

The devil is in the detail and that’s definitely right when it comes to booking any type of event.

Double checking and even triple checking everything is in place weeks before the day will definitely make everything run as smooth as possible.

Don’t leave organising everything until the last minute.

Getting the venue right

You want a venue that show’s your business in the best light.

Getting the guest list right

Make sure the people you want there are there & make sure you get the ball rolling months before the event. Preplanning will help make sure your date is in their diary.

Having a back up plan

You don’t want to need it but it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

Entertainment for others

Hosting your day at a country club which has several activities for guests is definitely an option to consider.

Aim to Impress

Take the steps to make sure your golf day is professional.

Focus on your brand

Yes, the golf day is all about having fun but one of the main reasons for organising your golf day is to get your business more exposure.

Going the extra mile will always impress people and here it doesn’t have to be too much. Branded banners, flag sticks, tees and balls all add to the glamour of your event. 

Get personalised polo shirts and golf balls

Getting stuff personalised is a great way to standout and there’s so many different options you can choose.

If you’ve got the budget you get go high class with the polos. For example, one of our clients choose to get their clothing done by ADD LINK HERE which turned out to be a huge talking point and something everyone loved.

And let’s be honest, you’ve always wanted your company name on your balls, so get it done. Remember though to make them identifiable. You’ll want to get a few numbers on, perhaps 1-10  if there’s a lot of people or just 1-5 if there’s around 50 people.

Remember to get some pens too, so players can easily identify theirs.

Get some prizes people actually want to win

How many times have you been at an event and the prizes weren’t even worth entering it for.

You can get your event sponsored by some local businesses and get them to throw in a prize.

But what’s better than a decent prize? How about cold, hard cash. Did you know you can offer a cash prize of up to £50,000 without actually having to have £50,000 to give someone?

That’s right, from about £350, you can offer a prize of up to about £5,000.

And think about that. If there’s 100 people at the even that’s £3.50 per person. And for the £50,000 prize your paying £7.50 per person if there’s 100 people.

Do be cautious though. With the larger prizes their does need to be someone official there to witness it, so always make sure you read the terms and conditions before offering any prizes. 

Make sure everyone knows what’s going on.

You want to have itineraries printed out about a month in advance and ideally have it on your website too.

Here at TGS Events, what we do is collect the e-mail address of every participant and as soon as the event is organised we send out an e-mail to let every know the dates and what’s going on and what to expect.

Get someone to photograph the day.

Getting photographs and videos of the day is priceless. It’s these types of images that show your business in a good light and you’re definitely going to be wanting memories of the day.

You can find student photographers from a couple of hundred pounds for the day, so you’ve not got any excuses.
