It’s official: more and more planners are seeing the value in having a tournament as part of their event. Golf pros and meeting professionals at prestigious golf venues across the South have some advice for planners who are curious about adding a tournament to their events. Here are some of the top pieces of advice that may come in handy when you’re ready to swing your event toward a tournament:

Use the destination’s CVB: it can provide info on the best course and more for your tournament needs.

Use the people at the resort and pro shops to help you plan the tournament.

Attend as many events with tournaments incorporated as you can before planning your tournament to get some fun or maybe even out-of-the-box ideas.

Add fun contests and prizes for less-serious tournaments and for those who aren’t as competitive.

Keep it fun!
