What Are the First Steps?
Develop your event objectives so we can help you with proven strategies
Is your objective “Team Building,” “Incentive or Reward,” “Client Hospitality,” “Conference Break” or something else? Whatever you establish as a goal for the golf outing component of your event, it would be our pleasure to offer all the support you require.
Set your budget and desired dates
Naturally you want the most for your event dollar, but you also want the
event to be memorable. Often times if you have some flexibility we can
help you save substantially. If your dates are not flexible, we can suggest
ways to stretch your dollars by holding your event at certain times of the
day when the courses can be most accommodating or by employing
certain formats like a shotgun. We can suggest ways to stretch your
budget while enhancing the golf experience. We have been called
Estimate how long you have for your golf outing
In addition to the golf itself and the pre and post golfing activities at the course, remember to include traveling time to and from the course. We offer a selection of courses all within just nine miles from the heart of the Las Vegas Strip so a one way trip only takes about 20 minutes. Your participants will appreciate spending less time driving on the highways, so they have more time to enjoy Vegas.
Many courses are as far as an hour or more one way: http://www.waltersgolf.com/trans_study.asp?show=desc
Estimate the number of golfers and non-golfers in your event
We offer complete event services for groups of 16 or more. Full course buy-outs generally involve somewhere around 100+ golfers, but we can tailor programs for you to allow your group to have exclusivity and not be hampered by golfers who are not part of your outing.
Guesstimate the skill levels of your participants
We can develop tournament formats for golfers of all skill levels, so that everyone can have an enjoyable time. For example “Best Ball” allows everyone to enjoy being part of the action. Sometimes those who do not have long drives get intimidated off the tees. With Best Ball, each player hits his or her second shot from the furthest drive, and this repeats with the second shot, third shot, etc.
There are multiple, traditional tournament formats we can help organize and some of our own, including poker tournaments, all developed to make golf outings fun, memorable and a good time for all.
We can provide alternative activities for the non-golfers, ranging from beginning golf clinics, lunches, fashion shows, sightseeing and more.
