Tournament Consultant: Friend or Foe?

Written by Chris Werner. Posted in Shark News

Why hiring a tournament consultant is a smart first step.

The first time you plan and implement any fundraising activity, there is a steep learning curve.  Every event has intricacies that are not immediately obvious from the outside.  A golf tournament is no different. It has all the same planning issues as any other event requiring considerable planning and close attention to an event timeline.

There are hundreds of horror stories about charity organizations who decided to host a golf event to raise funds for their good works or companies that want to say “thank you” to employees and customers only to realize that they know little to nothing about how to do the work and don’t know where to turn.  The course is great for ‘day of event” but courses rarely have dedicated folks to do in-depth planning at the beginning and pay attention to the details along the way.

Our difference is that we appreciate what golf tournament planners really do. We appreciate it because we have been in your shoes.  We fully understand the unique needs of golf tournament planners and tournament chairpersons, so we’re poised to meet those needs efficiently and cost-effectively.
