Sponsorship Opportunities

Event sponsorships offer an excellent marketing opportunity for your company

As a professional golf tour showcasing some of the top up-and-coming talent in professional golf, the Michigan Players Tour is creating a number of excellent sponsorship opportunities for businesses and corporations seeking to associate itself with the sport. As of this writing, the Tour is seeking sponsorship at all levels, ranging from Tour Title Sponsor (i.e., an "umbrella" sponsor) to individual Event Sponsors and Associate Sponsors.

In particular, an Event Sponsorship can provide your company with a unique and powerful marketing tool to help publicize your products and / or services with a minimal investment. In addition, the sponsorship allows the creation of a Pro-Am preceding the event, allowing the event to become a company outing for employees, business partners, and customers.

The cost of an event sponsorship is surprisingly low in comparison to traditional forms of advertising.

For additional information regarding sponsorship opportunities, please see the Sponsors page of this web site, or contact the Tour office.
