A Hole in One
Last summer I participated in our annual company golf outing for the first time. What a blast. What could be better for de-stressing with all of your work buddies than a friendly (and rather hilarious), round of golf in the afternoon sun with some frosty beverages? Enough said – I’ve got you hooked now, right? Read on to find out how we made our company golf outing a fun and memorable success.
Having never been golfing before in my life, I was, as you would call it, a rookie…so of course I had no idea that having an abundance of golf tees was essential. Thankfully, we had all been given a bag of personalized golf tees for the occasion (branded with the SSP logo of course). Someone in our office has superb attention to detail. Ten gold stars for them. And, not only do our golf tees come in 28 different colors, but they are also offered in two different sizes….decisions, decisions!
Now, back to those frosty beverages I mentioned earlier….we were also given customized can coolers to hold all of our chilled drinks that afternoon. Nobody likes a wet hand from condensation and those can coolers did the trick. The classic collapsible design made it super easy to store in our back pockets while we were teeing off, and comes in 13 bright colors. Brilliant. Another bonus? These can coolers won’t break the bank either. That’s what I call a win-win situation.
No matter what the weather is when you’re golfing, you’ll need protection from the sun (and hopefully you won’t be golfing in the rain, otherwise you may as well call your ‘golf outing’ a ‘mud derby’). Thankfully for you, we offer SPF 15 and SPF 30 sunscreen with aloe vera – score! Try our sunscreen in the tottle bottle for 1.5 ounces of easy to squeeze sun protection. Complete the package by topping it off with our carabiner clip option – clip it to your golf bag or your belt loop to ensure it doesn’t get lost on the course or fall off your cart. And if you really want to show off, give the ultimate sun protection with our combo (ooh fancy!). Our combo comes equipped with a tottle bottle clipped to a lip balm, ensuring your lips also stay unscathed by the sun’s hot rays.
And speaking of lip balm, I have another well rounded idea for you. Why not put our SPF lip balm in a golf ball? (How many of you just pictured me taking a chisel and hammer to a golf ball, breaking it open, and filling it with lip balm? You sillies….how in the world would that work?) No, I’m talking about our cleverly designed lip balm in the shape of a golf ball filled with our SPF 20 Vanilla. Mmm….and how perfect would that be for a golf outing? Just be sure it doesn’t get mistaken for a real golf ball….that would be a sad loss! Not into golf? No worries, we offer other sports balls as well. Tennis? Check. Soccer? Baseball? Check. Check. Not into sports at all? Try our plain black or white balls. You just can’t go wrong here.
So aside from the fact that I had never been golfing before and couldn’t tell the difference between a 9 iron and a wedge, I had an unforgettable time at our golf outing (and the free goods were definitely an added bonus). Every time I take out my can cooler I reminisce about my fun and somewhat embarassing experience….isn’t that what it’s all about? So why not try some of these products at your own company golf outing or for the next golf event you sponsor…your recipients will feel like they’ve hit a hole in one.
