Fund Raising Operational Goals and Guidelines:
Golfing for Gold

by the Booster Clubs of America


A SMALL EFFORT - 12 players at $20.00 per player = $240.00 minus green fees of $10.00 per player = $120.00 profit.

A BETTER THAN AVERAGE EFFORT - 25 players at $20.00 per player = $500.00 minus green fees of $10.00 per player = $250.00 profit.

A GREAT EFFORT - 60 players at $20.00 per player = $1200.00 minus green fees of $10.00 per player = $600.00 profit.


A golf course, a pro to help organize the event, a mass mailing, signs, a donation box, a trophy for the winner(s), and refreshments.


Go to a local golf course that your high school team(s) use. If your school does not have a golf program, go to a municipal golf course, and get the pro there to let you use the course for one day. Most golf courses which have an agreement with high school teams are usually willing to help. Decide with the pro on a date and time for the event.

You should have a set price for golfers that includes green fee plus an extra charge for profit. Charge anywhere from $10.00 to $35.00 depending on what green fees are. This will determine how much you will make.

Promote the event with a mass mailing to all residents throughout the community. Make sure to mention that a portion of the proceeds will be given to the golf program at the school. Golfers are more apt to play when they know that other golfers - younger ones - will benefit from it! Do not have an admission charge for spectators; just have a donation box at the 9th and 18th holes. Sell refreshments. This can be a nice added income. Promote the tournament at other athletic events, and get local media to help publicize it. Group players by handicap. Break them down into men's and women's divisions. Give trophies to men's and women's winner. To save the cost of the trophies have a trade off with a trophy company. For example, the tournament could be promoted as the Boosters' and the trophy company.


This has been a successful fund raiser for many organizations and will be fun-raising for your club.
