Respondents surveyed after the event rated it as meeting or exceeding their expectations and left the class with a multitude of information and materials to help them achieve their next year’s tournament objectives.
The most important areas covered, according to attendees, were tournament organization, sponsorships and marketing, budget and financing, chairman and vice chairman, registration, and programs.
All attending felt the format of the seminar was effective and presenting information from a committee and subcommittee prospective was well received.
Materials handed out were acknowledged to be helpful for putting on future golf tournaments.
