SMT Golf held a terrific promotional presentation at Ruffled Feathers Golf Club in Lemont, Illinois, on February 15, 2019. Mike Tait does a terrific job of coming up with creative fundraising games and programs to help the organizations raise money for their particular causes.
SMT runs over 300 events per year and Mike continues to come up with new ways to help the organizations secure more participation and make the events more fun for the golfers.
If you take a look at the specific games SMT puts together, you see that the organization can have a wide array of choices for their population.
Over 50 event planners attended and were treated to a first-class lunch by Ruffled Feathers as they put out a great spread to showcase their event hosting capabilities. Ruffled Feathers does a first class job at their events and you could easily see why it is a premier facility in the Chicago area.
If you are looking for innovative ideas for your golf event, SMT might have the answers. While some may find the games gimmicky, only you can determine if they are a good fit for your golfing audience. For your company outings and Chamber of Commerce type of events, I think their games fit pretty well.
However, if you host an event with a more serious contingent of golfers, their competitive spirit is unlikely to want to “skip” playing several of the holes, even if the games provide the golfers with an artificially inflated scoring.
Most importantly, it is great to see golf season coming around the corner. Winter has already been too long and we are anticipating even more snow ahead this coming week.
