Charity golf outings can be an effective (and fun) way to raise awareness and money for your cause. And they’re popular, too. More than 800,000 golf outings are organized each year to fund and promote worthwhile causes. If your nonprofit organization is one of the many planning a charity golf outing this spring or summer, we have “fore” of the best golf giveaways to help you hit a hole-in-one.
- Golf balls: There are so many ways to use golf balls as giveaways. They are a token of appreciation that can be reused. Drop a golf ball in every swag bag or gift a sleeve to each registered participant. You could also give away an entire box as a grand prize. Try holding a putting challenge or longest drive contest where the winner takes home a box of golf balls featuring your logo.
- Apparel: Logo’d apparel is not only a fitting golf giveaway, it’s a fantastic way to caddy your brand all around town long after the event is done. A branded golf shirt is a fashionable prize for a hole-in-one contest. A logo’d cap makes a perfect raffle prize, plus it will keep the sun out of their eyes. Hats are extremely effective promoters—the average hat gets more than 3,100 impressions!
- Rain gear: According to Golf Digest®, rain gear is the third most popular item to keep in a golf bag. This rain poncho, packed neatly inside a golf ball case, is the perfect addition to your golf swag bags. It will save the day should showers threaten to rain on your event. Promotional umbrellas will not only help keep golfers dry, they also catch approximately 1,300 glances in their lifetime. Plus, umbrellas have staying power—they are kept approximately six months longer than your average promotional product. Sell golf umbrellas, imprinted with your charity’s name, at registration. It’s a great way to spread your messaging while raising additional funds for your cause. If you’re looking for a raffle prize, these golf bag covers are up to par. They keep clubs clean and dry while promoting your organization.
- Accessories: When selecting your golf giveaways, be sure to choose something the recipient can use—85 percent of people will keep a promotional product if it is useful. A custom golf kit, complete with sunscreen, first-aid supplies, a divot tool, tees and more, will ensure golfers are ready to hit the links under any conditions. The kit makes a great thank-you gift for donors. The moisture-wicking fandana helps keeps hair out of their faces and sun off their heads and necks. Plus, it helps cools the skin. Let volunteers show off your logo in this fashionable, yet functional, giveaway.
Golf season is just around the corner. Try to find the best golf giveaways as you begin to plan your charity outing. Your event will be an ace in the hole!
