Most Tournament Planners start planning their event 60 days before their event, which means not having enough time to reach their goals. Tournament Planners need at least 6 months to do it right.
Take advantage of the winter months to start planning your events.

Review past event. Not just the good but what went wrong.
Where your past golfers are coming from and their likes/dislikes.
- Golf Course
Secure your course and perhaps go out and talk to new courses to discuss a different location.
Put the committee together now and have them start asking sponsors
The new year is when everyone is setting their sponsorship budgets so ask now.
Survey your past golfers.
Golfing shows are happening in February and March in the major cities in the Pacific NW so consider attending as a guest to research sponsors and all golf themed items.
