Are you the golfer who has agreed to organize your Women’s group weekly events or tournaments? I have some suggestions for you in a couple of golf books that may help you with some new golfing ideas to try. My book is available called “Crazy Golf Games” and can be purchased on Amazon or with my publisher Booklocker. You will find all kinds of golf games and tournament ideas that I have tried along with other women Golf Chairpersons who have sent me their successful tournaments.
Crazy Golf Games book is a paperback large size book with contributors from Australia, Florida, New York and Minnesota. These great gals sent me their successful events and often with pictures to illustrate their event. There are ideas for themes, scrambles that can help you think of ways to organize your own events.
Another golf games book that was sent to me by Peg Mikoden called “Tee Parties” with a long list of game ideas, themes, decorations, etc. Peg goes into detail on organizing a great golf tournament with themes and lists of things you need to do to make it successful. Peg included the importance of planning ahead and goes into detail on how this is done. This is a hard cover book with ring binder inside. There are excellent drawings in color to emphasize each section of her book.
Peg’s book Tee Parties has sturdy heavy duty pages so will take a lot of wear and tear with your committee. They will spend much time going over Peg’s excellent examples of themes and covers each with great suggestions. She included recipes also that followed some of the themes in the book. She also lists many ideas on what golf game you may want to include in your tournament plus suggestions on prizes to offer.
On finding how to order this book type in Peg Nikoden in your search engine or google her name and you will find many areas to check on finding out how to purchase this book. Writers on bellaonline cannot include web addresses in our review but can find it in the forum section plus I can include in on my Facebook page. The last I checked with Peg she said she had reduced the price so take the time to do some research on this.
I am sure you can find more books about golf games and tournaments if you take the time to do some research on the internet. What a great tool we have at our disposal to be connected with the world and find just the right item we are looking for. I do this all the time and am educated on so many things I am interested in. Check out these books and begin planning all your golfing events for your 2013 golfing groups.
