Plan your Golf Tournament with BestOutings.com!

Plan your Golf Tournament with BestOutings.com!

Planning a full-fledged golf tournament can be extremely complicated. From the immense logistical issues – such as creating a budget and getting golfers to show up – to just finding a golf course that is willing to host your tournament, there are a wide variety of tournament planning facets that simply aren’t doable without a nudge in the right direction, a useful tool, or just a little guidance.

Fortunately, whether you’re planning a tournament for charity or you are planning a corporate golf outings or a social event like a bachelor party, you don’t have to go it alone! BestOutings.com is here to help you through every step of the way, so you can plan the golf tournament of your dreams!

How Can BestOutings.com Help?

Have you ever tried to plan a golf tournament, only to find that either A) The course you want is booked solid, or B) You have to trek all over town, calling (and visiting) course after course just to find the right golf course for your event? If you have, then you know just how extremely frustrating this step of the tournament planning process can be. Because many golf courses don’t necessarily make it easy for you to reach the team in charge of making the decision you need, getting you an accurate golf outing quotation that you can compare to others, and finding a golf course that both suits your needs and actually wants to host your event can be nearly impossible! That’s why BestOutings.com has implemented a truly fascinating “Tournament Request Proposal” tool to take out all the leg work, and make tournament planning easier than ever before.  This free tool gets you quotes from all of the best courses in your area.

By bringing together some of the best golf courses across the United States and giving users direct access to their management teams, BestOutings.com gets rid of the constant email and phone campaigns often associated with this step, and boils it down to one easy to fill out form! All you have to do is type in what you want and submit your request. BestOutings automatically send your request for quotation to all of the best courses and they can reply directly to you with their offers. Presto!

This is your Gateway to your Next Tournament

Greg scrambling

Greg had to scramble on the par 3, 5th… but hit a great shot from here to save par. #likeaboss

 

Paige on 4 fairway

Paige eying down her approach shot on the par 4, 4th.

 

Greg scrambling

Greg had to scramble on the par 3, 5th… but hit a great shot from here to save par. #likeaboss

 

justin on 6

Justin took the caddies advice and played a safe shot down the left side of the bunkers, taking the water out of play.

 

Paige on 7 for blog

Paige knocked this one to 10 feet.

 

The walk down on the 7th. Paige and Greg would both birdie the hole.

 

Lisa steep cliff

Lisa Ann knows no fear. It’s all about the working angles here on the 8th… and I’d say the photo was worth.

 

paige on 9 - lighter

Paige teeing off on the 9th. This was one of the only fairways she missed all day. She hit a great recovery and saved par, but wasn’t happy about the miss as you can see via “Pebble Cam”:

(Pebble Cam brought to you by Patrick Koenig)

 

Paige’s sick bunker shot on the par 3, 12th… she really is unbelievable talented. Stuck this to a few feet to save par.

jump

Patrick had a few “special ideas” for pics on 18.

I think this jumping picture is my favorite of the whole trip. In particular, Justin doing his best Super Mario impression is fantastic.

 

pushups on 18

Patrick and I decided to borrow a few balls and hit tee shots on 18. He was smart enough to do a proper warm-up (above).

I opted out of the pushups and smashed a high fade that bounced hard off of a ($20 million) house and landed in the fairway. We all had a good laugh out at that one. Paige said she may try that move in Dubai, but I’m not holding my breath.

 

Paige + Clint Selfie

Paige was kind enough to give me a lesson in how to take a proper selfie as we walked up 18…

 

the whole crew 18 green

The whole crew on 18 green. Patrick wins this picture, sorry Paige.

 

Official match score card

Paige and Lisa Ann teamed up to beat the guys in a best ball match.  Paige led the way with 3 birdies on the front, a clutch birdie on 16 to go 2 up, and a par on 17 to seal the deal. (Paige shot a 71 individually)

As you can see below, we have an “official match scorecard”, signed by the winners and losers, courtesy of Patrick (who also did a great recap post about #PlayPebbleWithPaige).
