Last week we discussed the popularity of golf in the United States. This week we are discussing Golf Tournaments, their popularity, who produces golf tournaments and some of the most widely used promotional products used at golf tournaments. According to the Corporate Logo Magazine March 2006 article over 1 million golf tournaments are held in the United States each year. Meeting planners, corporations, charities, schools, associations and civic groups make up the six major groups that host golf tournaments.
Golf tournaments can be used to raise money for charity, gain recognition, recreation, thank you for support and competition. Many various types for promotional products are available for each of these categories. For example, low cost items such as golf tees, golf pencils and golf balls can be used for the charity events. These items show appreciation to the participants of the charity event. Golf towels, because of the large imprint area are ideal for gaining recognition. Golf bags, tournament kits and golf apparel make great appreciation gifts and golf awards for participants of competitive golf tournaments.
