  • Golf Tournament: Participate in a local golf tournament. Give away Christian-themed merchandise to the other golfers.
  • Everyday Golfing: Buy a full set of Christian-themed golf merchandise for you, your friends and family. Use it every time you go to the course to share the Good News.
  • Golf Scramble: Have a church-wide golf scramble at a local course and invite people at nearby neighborhoods to attend as well. Have members invite their unchurched friends. Pass out information about your church as well as fun promotional items with the plan of salvation on it.
  • Putt Putt Golf Extravaganza: (Great for Youth Groups and children's birthday parties!) Rent out the local putt putt golf course. Invite your unchurched friends from school. Put together gift packs for everyone who attends, with Christian-themed merchandise (a cap, a golf ball, a can cooler) and evangelism tracts to those who attend. Invite them to visit church with you.
