How to Run a Putting Contest
- Players sign up for the contest. Most events charge a fee to play to raise more money. For example, $10 per putt or 3 putts for $25
- Set the putt length on the practice putting green from 60’-100’, don’t make it easy.
- Putters qualify for the final round by being the closest to the hole.
- The 3 golfers closest to the pin from the qualifying round will participate in the finals.
- For the finals, the 3 finalist take one more putt and whoever is closest, wins.
- The winner receives a Carnival Cruise. You can give the other two finalists a consolation prize.
- The golf course professional can help with the putting contest set up.
How Hole in One Contests Work
- This contest is held on the par 3 holes at the golf course hosting your event.
- If a golfer makes a hole in one, they win the prize featured on that hole.
- You can sell a sponsorship for each hole.
- The minimum yardage for the shot is usually 150 -165 yards and 15 yards closer for women.
How the Long Drive Contests Work
- Longest drive Contests recognize the “big hitters” in your event. Choose a hole that is long and fairly straight, usually a Par 5
- The person with the first long drive writes their name on a marker (the golf course will provide one for your event) placed in the fairway. This continues until the last group completes your event.
- Ask the golf professional at your course for the best long drive contest hole.
How a Closest to the Pin Contest Works
- This contest is also held on a par 3 and can be run at the same time as your hole-in-one contest or if your course has more than 4 Par 3 holes, use this contest on the fifth par 3.
- The object is to be the golfer that hits the ball closest to the hole for the day and to win a prize.
- The golf course will provide you with a measuring/recording device to place on the hole.
- Golfer measures and record results throughout the day.
- The golfer closest at the end of the day, wins the prize.
How a Shootout Works
- The shootout is an exciting concept and a high profile event at golf tournaments everywhere.
- Four golfers participate. The golfers can be the winning foursome or golfer selected at random from a raffle (a good way to raise more money)
- The Shootout is held on a hole near the clubhouse so everyone can watch. The distance is 165 yards and can be taken from the fairway.
- You hold the Shootout after golf with a viewing area set up with refreshments.
- Each golfer takes a shot and, if they make it, they win the cash prize
