3 Ways to Incorporate Golf into Your Next Meeting


With LEO Events’ headquarters city of Memphis gearing up for the 2019 World Golf Championships-FedEx St. Jude Invitational, it’s only natural that we have golf on the brain.

The golf course can be a valuable tool in creating an interactive meeting experience. From receptions on the course to interactive golf-themed wellness and team-building activities and even customized charitable tournaments for groups, golf provides an engaging way to bring attendees together – even the ones who do not consider themselves as golfers. Here are three golf-inspired tips for your next meeting.


1. Get All Attendees Involved

Since the game may not be for everyone, it is important for planners to provide different options to appeal to every attendee. Finding a versatile course is the first step. If a course offers more than the standard 18-holes, a traditional tournament can be featured for those who want it, while including other options around the additional holes such as disc golf or other activities.


2. Incorporate Wellness

Thanks to the beautiful outdoor settings, golf courses are the perfect backdrops for wellness activities. There are endless options from yoga sessions on the greens to group walks along the course.


3. Add in a Community Give-Back Component

Golf is a great way to tie in corporate social responsibility. Tournaments in which the proceeds benefit a charity can have a huge impact on attendees. LEO Events has the pleasure of producing the annual golf tournament, “Play for Jay,” benefiting the Jay Uiberall Foundation. This event is always a hit and participants leave ready for the next year, knowing that they are playing golf for a good cause.
