How to Choose the Best Golf Course for Your Event
Golf continues to be one of the country's most popular sports, both in terms of interest and active participation. In 2020, almost 37 million people played golf in the United States, including 3 million new players. Thanks to its unique handicapping rules, golf can be enjoyed by players of all levels, and that is part of what makes the sport so popular for public and private events.
If you are planning to hold a golf event, whether for a non-profit or corporate effort, it is important to choose the best golf course. Selecting a suitable and high-quality course will help to attract more players, sponsors, and ensure that everyone enjoys the experience.
In this blog post, we will share some useful tips for choosing a golf course event location.
Consider Club Facilities
It's not just the action out on the course that you should consider when organizing an event. It's important to choose a club that will be able to cater to your event and provide everything that you need.
Here at St. Cloud Country Club, corporate and charity outings are available on Mondays. For events, we offer the choice of starting time, driving range use, customized scorecards, player cart signs, courtesy shuttle carts, tournament scoring, and full clubhouse use for post-tournament dinner.
Our clubhouse is also the ideal venue for both large and intimate events and banquets.
Consider the Course Difficulty
It's well-known that not all golfers are created equal and there will be players of differing skill levels participating. Therefore, it's important to choose a course that will be equally suitable for experienced players and weekend warriors.
