Have you ever seen a spiral bound children’s book that has divided pages? The head, the body, and the feet of each picture are separate images. You can flip through the book and create different creatures based on your selections. Some make scary concoctions, while others are very funny.
The same can be true of your golf outings when you shake something up. Changing even one thing in your chamber golf outing can cause you to have a very different event. Here are a few things you can consider altering:
Refresh Your Chamber Golf Tournament with These Changes
- Day of the week. Weekday versus weekend may change who’s able to come.
- Time of the day. A chamber not far from me hosts an evening golf tournie complete with glow sticks and glow in the dark balls.
- Game. Substitute mini golf for serious golf.
- Tee location. Don’t tee off. Do a ball drop.
- Emcee. Golf announcers are notoriously quiet in order to allow for better concentration. Make it loud but advise golfers ahead of time that it will be more circus, less serious golf.
- Golf carts for golf boards.
- Way teams are assigned/picked.
- Venue to an indoor golf simulator. Means more time for networking because you’re all together at the same “hole.”
- Prizes. Traditionally those with the lowest score win but it doesn’t have to be that way. You can give a prize for coming in last or getting closest to a designated score.
- Attire. Who says you have to play in golfer “uniforms”? A golf costume party can liven things up.
- Whose score counts. You don’t need to take every person’s score at every hole. You can use one score per team for each hole by rotating a red ball (or color of your choosing) among team members. Whoever has the red ball in that hole is the score that is recorded.
