Hosting a corporate event or fundraiser? Here's your venue

One of the biggest challenges to planning a corporate event or fundraiser is finding a balance between effectively reaching your goals and engaging with your employees and investors.

You might be wondering, how can you have an event that’s both effective and engaging? A golf tournament may not be the very first thing that comes to mind, but Gallagher’s Canyon Golf Club makes it fun and accessible for everyone. Here’s how.

Golfing for everyone

Gallagher’s Canyon offers the opportunity to host tournaments every day during golf season and can accommodate groups of 24 to 150. There’s also a fully stocked Golf Shop with a variety of clothing, accessories and gear to check out and a practice facility for a chance to warm up or have a lesson.

Room to socialize

Leaving the office and heading outside to enjoy the sun at a golf tournament is a great way for your team or clients to relieve some stress and get to know one another in an entertaining way. A great bonus of having a golf tournament at Gallagher's Canyon is the positive effects it has on your employees.

Activities outside of the office offer an opportunity for socializing, which will help employees bond as they learn how to communicate and collaborate with each other — don’t worry, this will transfer to the workplace.

A golf tournament is perfect for running a successful fundraiser as well. There is plenty of time to socialize and network with everyone during a round of golf. Being out in the fresh air soaking up the Okanagan sun will be sure to put people in a great mood, setting the perfect platform for a successful fundraiser.

Unwind with delicious food

After a day of golfing, your group can unwind at the Canyon Bar and Grill. Gallagher’s Canyon offers a post-tournament reception in their dining room or a fully-catered banquet for your group of golfers.

You can also plan other events at Gallagher’s Canyon such as wedding receptions, Christmas parties, anniversary dinners, business meetings and more. The Canyon Bar and Grill provides beautiful views of the golf course with a variety of event options.

Benefits of team building

According to an infographic put together by Officevibe, highly engaged employees are 87% less likely to quit their job, and companies with good employee engagement earn two and a half times more revenue.

The key to increasing engagement is investing into your team. Whether it’s a fundraiser or a corporate event, it’s important to make people feel as though they are a part of something meaningful. Your team should be aware of the goals of the company and feel as though they make a difference.

Developing a strong company culture that is fun and engaging for your employees is a great way to improve productivity and motivation. People enjoy coming to work if the environment is open and friendly and by hosting events outside of the workplace, you are encouraging your team to become more collaborative and to communicate better with each other.
