Best Golf Tournament swag?

    Hey Scooby gang .... I've been tasked with researching some ideas for gift items for a client putting on a golf tournament. It's not a huge budget and I'm looking at branded sun screen, vests, golf kits, umbrellas, etc. but wondered .... what's the coolest and/or most useful gift you've received at a tournament?
     
  2. Ethics in the industry forbid journalists from accepting gifts of value. Thus, they have no experience as to what is the coolest and/or most useful gift.

    Maybe a divot tool with your client's branding?

    I got a golf glove playing in one of those once. Incredibly useful.
    A sleeve of balls with the corporate logo might also be nice.

    Computer bag? Divot tool? Nice, personalized bag tag? You can lose golf balls although I guess somebody will find them so you keep getting life out of them.

    An oversized tee that fits snugly and safely in a stripper's ass.

    Umbrella. Quality. Good for on and off the course. With a nice big logo for advertising.

    The client has done umbrellas and clubs in the past, I'm told. They have a sponsor for balls and tees so those are out. Thanks to all for the suggestions!

    Not sure where this would fit in budget-wise, but what about valuables bags (not sure of the official name) that players can put their wallet, keys, cell phone, etc., in and stick in their golf bag during the round. Put the corporate logo on it and I'd bet they would get a ton of use out of it.

    A green jacket is rather nice.

    HC, at the 1985 Cotton Bowl, they gave us logo-ed cotton (natch) golf shoe bags. Those are big enough to use to carry almost all portable small items and I still have and use mine (not for shoes) 30 years later.
