How to Participate in an American Red Cross Golf Tournament

By Marc Jenkins

There are many different golf tournaments out there for players to participate in all across the country. Some are great for personal reasons, such as winning large amounts of prize money, while others, like charity events, are beneficial to those not playing in the tournament. The American Red Cross holds several charity tournaments throughout the year in which thousands of people take to the course and have a good time generating funds for people in need.


Difficulty: Moderate
Step 1
Contact your local American Red Cross chapter's event coordinator. Use the Red Cross' locator on the home page of their Web site to find your local office.
Step 2
Ask if there is an event sponsored by that chapter, and if not, where is the nearest chapter that does sponsor an event.
Step 3
Once you do find an event, sign up and begin practicing for the event. You can raise money for the entry fee or spend your own money for the cause, it is all charity.
Step 4
Show up on the day of the tournament ready to play and with a winning attitude as well as a charitable one. The object of the tournament is to raise money, however you still want to win, which is the objective in any competition.

Tips & Warnings

Bring several business cards to help yourself out in the process; these events can be a great place to network.
Competing in these tournaments is fun and fulfilling but also necessary to the people in need of the funds which they generate. Make sure to bring your tournament sign-up fee and come to play with an open mind and a giving heart.
