Adapting to a new generation of golfers

3 Ways Companies Can Support Golf on the City Tour

By Matt Weinberger LinkedIn

City Tour golfers represent all types of different backgrounds and professions.  Since all members are between ages 18 and 40, we find diverse tournament fields ranging from college players to golfers in their 30’s with busy jobs and kids.

So what makes the Nextgengolf City Tour special?  It’s a place that welcomes men and women of all skill levels and backgrounds that just want to continue to golf, and meet other people their own age in their city.

Recently, companies like Deloitte have gotten involved to support the initiative to grow golf.  There are many different ways companies can support golf by getting involved with the City Tour.  Here are three ways companies are making a difference:

1) Financial Support

By supporting your employees financially to compete in City Tour tournaments, you provide an opportunity for them to network and achieve corporate wellness through an inclusive community of young men and women golfers. Companies have subsidized tournaments from as little as 10% to fully subsidizing the competitions. Nextgengolf is able to provide custom codes (e.g. Enterprise50%) for your employees to use during team registration.Learn How to Get Your Team Involved

 “We love playing City Tour tournaments representing our company, 18Birdies.  It’s great to socialize with co-workers and also meet other Bay Area millennials." said Darcy Stevens, Senior Events Manager at 18Birdies.

3) Local Sponsorships

City Tour Sponsored ShirtLocal businesses like restaurants, bars, and small businesses have been supportive of City Tour teams across the country by providing sponsorships of teams in their city.  In 2016, a Cincinnati City Tour team was able to attend the 2016 National Championship because of financial support from a local restaurant.

In exchange, the team wore the restaurant's logo on their team apparel all weekend, providing plenty of exposure to the restaurant.
