Golf Tournament Fundraiser Ideas

Golf Fundraising Ideas

Lately, charity events have become more creative. In a society accustomed to a fast-paced lifestyle, simply asking for money is no longer enough. To gain support, you’ll need to raise greater awareness. As a result, charity is now commonly included in sports and other community gatherings at fundraiser events.

Hosting a charity golf tournament is a fantastic method to raise donations. It won’t just provide your community’s passionate golfers a chance to show off their skills and compete in friendly competition. It’s also an excellent method to unite people to support a shared purpose.

Charity Golf Tournament

You can use various innovative charity golf fundraising ideas to raise funds for your charitable organization. The following is a list of some of our favorite golf fundraiser ideas that are enjoyable and easy to organize.

Player Registration Fees

One of the most common golf tournament ideas to raise money from charitable events is to charge a registration fee. Furthermore, registration fees are typically charged at golfing tournaments to cover the “greens fee,” or the cost of playing a round or a session on the golf course. You can provide online and offline registration options for both guests and participants. Several online services help you automate your registration process for a small fee.

It would help if you also considered offering foursome registrations at a discounted rate. Golfers will be encouraged to invite their friends to the tournament. The more players, the greater the number of people attending the event.

Hole Sponsorship

One of the best and easiest to implement golf fundraiser ideas is to sell up to 18 hole sponsorships, where you have one sponsor per hole. To indicate the name of the hole sponsor, you can get the sponsor’s name or organization clearly shown on a sign at the hole.

Golf can be challenging, especially for beginners. An extra stroke not recorded on the scorecards will improve their chances and confidence! This is why, in these situations, many people would pay for mulligans. You can include it as part of a package or sell it independently. 


Hosting raffles are fun charity golf fundraising ideas! To obtain a variety of prizes donated, reach out to the local community months before the tournament. Showcase the things before the event begins so that participants may see what they might win and sell raffle tickets before heading out on the course. Have raffle ticket sales on the course and hold the raffle at the awards ceremony after the event.

Cash-Bar Golf Cart

Engaging golfers while on the golf course is a terrific approach to raising additional funds. A fully stocked cash-bar cart is the best way to do this! Fill the back of a golf cart with food, snacks, ice, and cold beverages, then drive around the course selling what your golfers desire. The best-sellers are sodas and cold beer. You might also want to include little bottles of sunscreen or caps and visors if someone forgets their essentials. Also, don’t forget to provide extra raffle tickets if someone is in the market for something after a fantastic drive.

Rent a Caddie

Selling caddie services are unique and fun golf fundraiser ideas! Contact your community for volunteers to drive the golf carts or carry golfers’ clubs. This is a great way to get the community involved in your event.

Some golfers may not think they need a caddie when signing up but later change their minds. Ensure you have pay stations for golfers to pay for this service while on the golf course.

Charity Dinner and Banquet

A charity dinner and banquet is a unique way to end a successful day and one of the best golf fundraising ideas to raise money. It’s a way for golfers to socialize and celebrate and a moment for you to raise funds for a good cause.

Ensure you provide delicious catered meals, drinks, and a friendly ambiance so that everyone will return for the tournament the following year. While you’re at it, do a charity auction. You can include a silent, live, or online auction.

Charity Safaris offers some of the best charity auction ideas, including adventure hunting trips, which can be included in your next Charity golf tournament. The best part is that you don’t pay us any money and get to keep 100% of the auction’s proceeds!
