Engaging both types of players, as well as those in between, creates an event that is fun, memorable as well as profitable for the charity. Putting Contests offer an appeal to all levels of golfer and can help to enhance a charity's overall yield.
Putting contests are a simple idea that all golfers can enjoy. While a skilled short game brings better chance of success, golfers of all ages, size and skill can participate and enjoy their experience. Cash prizes of $5,000, $10,000 or even up to $25,000 are a great incentive for anyone to put a little more "skin" in the game.
