Fundraise … at the First Tee
As a community service to sports teams, clubs, and non-profit organizations, the First Tee Indoor Golf Centre offers a wonderful opportunity to enjoy some fun and good times, while raising funds for your organization!
Saving 10% off of our regular rates, our “Group Rate” is only $27/hour per simulator! Each simulator can host up to 8 people, but we suggest 6 people per simulator for maximum enjoyment and excellent fundraising capabilities.
For example, if your group comes in to The First Tee from 7:30-11:30 on a Saturday evening, the rate charged per simulator will be $108.00+GST=$113.40. With 6 people per simulator, the golfing cost is only $18.90 per person, including tax. Charge whatever you want per ticket, and the rest is yours to keep for your organization!
Small Group (Example):
30 people want to golf, and rental is arranged for 5 simulators $108/simulator x 5 simulators = $540.00+GST = $567.00 rental.
Charge $30 per ticket. 30 golfers x $30 = $900.00. Your organization makes $333.00 from just ticket sales alone. If each person purchases an average of $5 in 50/50 tickets, your group makes another $75.00. Perhaps each person also buys an average of $5 worth of tickets on door prizes, your group makes another $150.00. Your group makes $558.00!
Large Group (Example):
60 people total, and rental is arranged for all 10 simulators. The entire Golf Centre is yours for the evening for your group. Simulator rental is: $108/simulator x 10 simulators = $1080.00+Gst = $1134.00 total.
Charge $30 per ticket. 60 golfers x $30 = $1,800.00. Your organization makes a quick $666.00 from ticket sales alone. If each person (i.e. 60) also purchases an average of $5 in 50/50 tickets, your group makes another $150.00. And, if each person also buys an average of $5 worth of tickets on various door prizes … your group makes another $300.00. Doing this, your group makes $1,116.00, at just $30 per person. Bump it to $40 or $50 per person, and your group raises $2,500+ … and has fun doing it!! Make it a real night to remember, charge a bit more ($60-$75), get some great door prizes, and make even more money!! You can raise in excess of $4,000.00 with a $75 entry fee! Keep in mind that “outdoor” golf tournaments in the summer on the local golf courses regularly charge $100+ as an entry fee. And here at the First Tee, everybody’s together during the golf, the weather’s perfect, and there’s NO MOSQUITOES.
At the First Tee … for groups we now offer a fun Darts Game. Throw a series of 3 golf balls at the large virtual dartboard on the simulator’s hitting screen. Lots of fun for golfers and non-golfers! And the First Tee is the only golf centre in the world with a Pirate Ship game. Hit golf balls at an approaching (virtual) pirate ship in the bay, while it shoots (virtual) cannonballs at you! We also have Food Packages available, but for maximum fundraising possibilities perhaps consider asking your guests to order for themselves off our menu, otherwise you’ll have to charge more for an entry fee.
