Organise a golf day

Take a look at our top tips for organising a golf day in support of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

Score a hole in one or just have fun with your very own charity golf day! Holding a fundraising day for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust can help to raise vital funds that will support our work for years to come.

Here's how you can hold a successful golf day! 

West  Golf Hinckley Golf Club

1. Planning

Create a committee to spread the work. Make sure there aren’t other events nearby on the date you choose.

2. Organisation

Arrange the venue nine months in advance. Check there aren’t other events nearby on that date.

3. Set a price

Choose a price that covers costs and raises money. Ask the golf course for a concession. Consider format, scoring, times and catering.

4. Sponsorship

Negotiate sponsorship, eg a different sponsor per hole. Secure advertisers for a printed programme if you’re using one.

5. Advertising

Promote the event in local press, posters, social media, parish magazines and golf literature, and invite your network of contacts.

6. Extras

Add a raffle, mulligans sold before the day, competitions and spot prizes (two’s competition, closest to the pin etc).

7. Volunteers

Find volunteers to help with registration, scorecards and programmes.

8. Advice and support

Get in touch with your regional Community Fundraiser for promotional materials, advice and support.
