GOLF TOURNAMENT SPONSORSHIPS

AOBA’s Golf Tournament is scheduled for the fall of each year, and the planning process begins in February.

Sponsorships range from $500 for Tee/Green (reserved for Owner/Manager AOBA members) to $5,000 for Premier Sponsors.  As opposed to sponsorship “Levels”, AOBA member companies sponsor various activities; the cost commensurate with the level of exposure to the sponsor. Signage is provided by AOBA to the sponsor.  Following are a few examples of golf sponsorships:

Beverage Stand, $800

Golfers’ Gift, $1,000

Exclusive Contest, $2,000
