The Golf Tournament Association of America estimates that there are more than 1 million organized golf outings at America’s 15,500 clubs each year. Of these, the World Golf Foundation reports that 143,000 events directly support recognized charities, raising almost $4 billion per year from over 12 million individual participants, raising more money for charity than the MLB, NBA, NFL and NHL combined.
The overwhelming majority of golfers play the game casually, for fun, with their friends. Participation in fun, corporate and charity golf outings continues to be one of golf's largest participation segments. In Canada alone; fun, charity and corporate tournaments at the Country's 2,100 18-hole public and semi-private courses account for almost almost 30% of the 60 million rounds played each year.
These events provide tremendous fundraising and awareness-building opportunities for grassroots, non-profit organizations and for profit corporations and are an important revenue staple at many of the world's 34,100 golf courses. To be successful, they require a great deal of resources, financial commitment and event-planning experience.
Typically organized by volunteer teams, the organizing process is inherently manual and volunteer turnover erodes much of the knowledge gained in previous years. Organizing committees regularly struggle to prioritize key tasks, maximize registration, sponsorship and donation contributions, and generally manage event day activity and post-event follow up.
