Charity Golf Outings

I want to get some feedback from everyone here and hope you have fun playing along!

 

So you're playing in a charity scramble, and you win one of the closest to the pin holes..   You get called up during the after golf awards to get your prize and it's a 1 dozen ProV's...Awesome right?

 

Would it bother you at all if the balls had the course logo on it?

 

Beyond that, would it bother you more if it had the logo and "Contest Winner" or something to that affect on the personalized line. 

 

Then lastly, open up to brainstorming....what sort of inscription do you think would be good for a such a prize or that wouldn't bother you.   For your time and thoughts, there will be a little something given out.    I'll use a random selection process of everyone who offers a suggestion, to pick a winner.

 

thanks looking forward to your replies!!

I think a lot of this has to do with size for me. I don't want the logo to be distracting. That said, having my ball say contest winner is probably a confidence booster. I think as long as the real estate is managed to be minimal, it's an awesome prize.

 

Lastly, I think "Go Low!" Would be a cool message.

I actually kind of like both the logo and the contest winner idea. I'd be pumped to win the closest to the pin and would like the memory of the win resurfacing whenever I used one of the prize balls.

 

Maybe put the event name in the Contest Winner spot. Something like "Swing at Cancer" instead would be a great reminder of why you were there in the first place. Plus, I'd feel like an ass if I lost a ball that said contest winner, though whoever found it would get a good laugh I'm sure.

Not at all, IMHO it's almost expected.

No, but it might look a bit silly when someone pulls it out of some weeds in the woods ;)

Course Logo & name of Tournament

Prov's... I wouldn't care What was on it! I love em! But having a memento of the course is a good thing.

Just like the "Callout Winner" here on THP... it's nice to have.

I'd like to see the name of the tournament on it as well. Just so I know what it is when I'm old and gray. HA!

Generally speaking, I don't like or play logo balls. Winning a dozen of them as a prize would therefore come as a bit of a letdown, but nonetheless the prize (or any other prize for that matter) would be gratefully received in the same spirit that it was given. 

Leave inscriptions for medals and the like which make a much better memento of the occasion if you ask me - having it on a dozen balls which will eventually get lost, wear out or generally make you look slightly lame in front of your playing partners some months later seems rather disingenuous.

If the balls had a logo, I wouldn't use them - they would go in the collection of other things to look at.

 

I also like the idea of medals or plaques.

 

Even a hand-stamped copper ball marker! ;) or a divot tool would be good - something that the winner use, but not lose.

Because the prize is pretty much the most expensive ball around, personally, I wouldn't care what may be printed on it.   Again, because of the expense of the balls used and not the less expensive used most times, my suggestion would be a certificate for a dozen balls of the players choice.  While the pro-v is popular, not everyone plays them.   If the desire is for the prize to reflect the course, then with the balls include one of those poker chips that most clubs have with their names and logos.   If the winner then uses the chip to mark his ball on the green, more people will notice that over the ball hit.   For that matter, based on retail, how much more is a shirt with the course logo than a dozen pro-vs.

I really don't like logo golf balls, personally, but as a contest prize I'd have no problem with it or the 'contest winner' stamping.   I never complain about free stuff  :D

 

put something like "closest to the pin"  "threw a dart" "stuck it close" on it

Thanks for the ideas and thoughts far guys.....And I laughed out loud at wbealsd and GSDave about finding the contest winner ball  in the weeds or trees..LOL

 

also I should say, these are meant to be used the entire season for every outing, so having  an individual outing name isn't an option in this case.  We do that for ones that are being given away at registration as a gift for outings that buy them.

 

Some good ideas so far!!

So the logo wouldn't bother me or the "contest winner" but you could go with "somebodies closer" or something fun on them instead of winner

I'm also not a huge fan of logo balls and I typically don't play them either. I really like the idea posted earlier about something like an awesome ball market that they would use or a cool repair tool with something stamped on it. Put on it the ol Happy Gilmore saying "Somebody's closer".

I understand there's a guy on here who makes custom copper ball markers/coins, if you wanted to go that route  :P

As a prize for a charity event logo balls or balls with sayings wouldn't bother me.

 

Based on one of your responses I get the impression that this is something that the course is looking to do for having tournaments held at the course. The logo would obviously be advertising but now you want to try and draw people back to the course maybe make the ball a coupon for x dollars if the next round. If they get lost on another course then you might bring in new players.

 

Maybe you can provide more context on why you can't print the event name on the ball other than it will be used for multiple events

I think the name of the event or course and the contest they won would be good. I know if I wont that I'd save at least one ball. (Im not too used to winning things at golf) but its something that I would be proud of.

Well there is one way to fix that, delete "The other one"   Just kidding...the world is big enough for multiple golf websites, anyone being "loyal" to just one, is doing their-self a disservice  :D

That fist line may be one of the most unique and genius ideas I've heard of!!  TKS

 

Because they will all be ordered in big run.   

 

But thinking this through a bit more, there may be another way to get it done and have each outing on it....Thanks again for making me rethink it!!
