Charity Golf Ball Drop

Having a helicopter drop hundreds of bouncing golf balls onto a putting green isn’t just entertaining—it’s a unique revenue generator at charity golf events! The Helicopter Ball Drop is something golf event attendees can get excited about, as they eagerly look to see if their ball lands in (or nearest to) the winning hole.

How does it work?

The key to this event fundraising idea is to sell the ‘balls’ ahead of time. Each sale or transaction is linked to a golf ball, each ball labeled with a number associating back to the transaction. When the ball is sold, the supporter is given the number of their ball. After the balls are dropped, the ball in the hole or nearest to the hole, wins. An additional option is adding a 2nd and 3rd place based on proximity or even a prize for the ball furthest from the hole.
