Golf season is finally here!   Leave a comment

As an avid golfer, I couldn’t be more excited that the snow is finally gone and the grass is finally green. It seems we are also getting some consistent warm weather too, which is nice.

With the advent of golf season, comes the golf outing season and we are beginning to receive requests from clients for ideas on player gifts for their events. As a golfer myself, I’m always on the lookout for new and different player gifts. The one thing that baffles me is how many outings give away items that aren’t very useful. I’m all about value, but value isn’t only about the low price. In this industry, value is about how long the items you give out are kept and used. It’s all about keeping your message in front of the recipient as long as possible and a quality product will meet that goal. That concept applies not only to golf outings but trade shows and other methods of using promotional products.

Some nice golf related ideas are divot tools with ball markers attached to them and we have some excellent options in a wide range of price points. Towels are always appreciated and we have a number of unique towel possibilities available along with a very clever towel holder that also has a ball marker attached to it.

Or how about an item that not only a golfer can use, but anyone else for that matter?   A water bottle that also doubles as a hot drink holder can be packed with imprinted tees, a small first aid kit and some snacks for a nice gift that can be used anywhere.

Speaking of tees, we have a supplier that has the ability to print inside the cup of the tee that the ball rests on. If you have a round or square logo icon, that can be a very effective way to promote your organization for a reasonable price. Tees can be packed in virtually any configuration too.

And there’s always apparel. From hats to shirts and outerwear, we have the major retail brands along with value priced garments that fit most any budget.

Don’t forget the awards for the winning teams or special events within the outing, like longest drive or closest to the pin.

After writing all of this, I think I’ll take a break and go hit some balls. My game needs work.

Enjoy the season!
