Recruiting new members through the Optimist Junior Golf Program
Great Recruiting Tool --
Invite the parents and golfers that play in our qualifiers to attend a future Optimist meeting in their hometown. Invite them to your District Meetings. Have the golfers tell about their experience at the Optimist Championship. Most parents are very grateful to the Optimists for sponsoring their child! New member recruitment is an easy way to strengthen your District and expand the Optimist Golf Program.
