Payouts for tournaments at our public club?
I'm a "member" at a public golf course and on the tournament committee. For our club championships (match play), I am wondering what your experience is for payouts. We've allocated so much for the dinner afterward but I'm wondering how much should go to first and second place. For example, of the 100% allocated toward prizes, how much for first, second, and how deep should the payouts go given that only about 30 people will play. Traditionally there is no trophy or another prize, just pro-shop credit. Also, at a public course should we expect the course to "pitch in" a bit given the prize is credit?
