Golf Tournament

Annual "Swing for Sales" Golf Tournament

Spring 2015
9:00am - 2:30pm
Ackerman Hills Golf Course

Your participation in the Annual Swing for Sales Golf Tournament helps to further the professional development of Purdue sales students, especially those of freshmen, sophomores, and juniors. Your support allows Purdue students to excel to greater heights in their soon-to-be sales careers.


Participating companies will take advantage of significantly increased visibility to Purdue students at the beginning of a new academic year. Targeted promotions for such a unique event will keep participating companies fresh in students’ minds throughout the semester. This promotion comes along with direct one-on-one access to pre-qualified students interested in professional sales careers. Golf has proven to be a common area for sales interactions and thus, this opportunity provides recruiters insight into the way potential sales candidates handle this sales situation. Golf will also allow recruiters and sales representatives the opportunity to instill knowledge about their company to sales students on a more personal level.


  • A 9-hole golf tournament will begin at 9:00am on Ackerman Hills Course
  • Each foursome will consist of 2 company reps and 2 Purdue sales students
  • Recruiters from sponsoring companies will be stationed at each tee box.
  • A "best-ball" format will be played while both twosomes in each foursome compete against each other
  • A clinic will be held from 11:00am-12:00pm for 25 students that are inexperienced at golf, but want to learn. They will meet up with the rest of our group at lunch.
  • The luncheon will provide an opportunity for mingling between students, recruiters, and sales reps following the keynote speech and awards.
