i've been thinking about running a tournament, something small but fun. aside from merchandise for am payout, how much does it really cost? if everything were to come out of my own pocket, no sponsors or anything?
i know to help with the cost of the pdga sanctioning, park rental fees, and such, one could offer hole sponsorships and cfr discs. but worse case scenario, everything out of pocket.
the only sponsorship would be some other club to run merch payout. and i would cut them a check out of the am entry fees. have you ever heard of this being done for an event? a local club handling payout, while another individual actually runs the tournament seperately. it might be a way for the club to get rid of some extra plastic, while making a little money.
that's just something i've been thinking about. best/worst case scenario, it would be easier to gather up the money for the actual tournament, minus the merch for payout. that and i would probably have to go through the process of trying to become an approved dealer to get the disc myself. after running a tournement or two, it might better my chances.
