How to host a corporate golf event 

Define your objectives

It’s important to consider the purpose of your event, do you want it to be a team-building activity, networking activity or simply to appreciate your clients? Knowing the purpose of your event will help guide you through the planning process and allow you to get the feel just right.

Choose the right date 

Choosing the right date is crucial to get the most out of your event, find a time that works for your group and ensures availability of the course. Try and aim for a date you know the majority of people will be able to attend – so avoid clashing with any major events or holidays that would make people unable to come.

Pick an agenda that aligns with your objectives

Create a schedule that includes golfing, meals and any additional activities you want to include. Our team at Oakridge would be happy to help you create an agenda for the day as well as offering various corporate event packages tailored to your needs, allowing you to pick one that best suits your budget and requirements.

Promote your event

Market your corporate event to clients, employees, or partners. Send out invitations, create a dedicated web page or post on social media to generate interest and excitement.

Communication

Enjoy the day and follow up

Use the opportunity to build connections and boost team spirit – remember that corporate golf events are meant to be enjoyable! After the event it can also be a good idea to send thank you notes to your guests and gather feedback for future events.
