Mel definitely writes from experience. He put Braemar Country Club on the map as one of the premier Clubs to go to in the Los Angeles area for Charity Tournaments. This book is a must read for anyone who plans to attract Charity Tournaments to their golf course. Well done Mel.

Reviewer: Mark
Mel Lewis has created a must read for any association, charity or groups that would like to raise money, recognize constituents or simply provide a great experience for members or patrons. What makes this step by step book so valuable is not only the lifetime of expereince Mel provides the reader, but Mel goes a step further and provides a CD with all the templates anyone would need to ensure their golf tournament a success. Well done Mel!

  a tournament organizing necessity , 08/19/2011
After Mel Lewiis arrived at Braemar CC in Tarzana, Ca., tournament participation soared and the number of outside events increased dramatically. By utilizing the principles contained in his book, the efficiency and operation of the tournaments make them alot more fun to play in. I really like his Polish-Peoria format, amongst others, because it really levels the playing field and gives the players a more oequitable chance. This book is a necessity for any golf entity that wishes to make their events a success for everyone.

  Great Read Full of Information , 11/18/2015
Reviewer: Ron Abraham
The goal was have a local fund raising golf tournament in October 2015. We had plenty of time but being new to putting a tournament together when we got down to the wire we had to call it off as we did not think that we had a quality product. That was after must research and reading. We came across the Golf Tournament 101 by Mel Lewis. What a difference this book has made. It steps you through every aspect of putting a golf tournament together. You have to size for what you want but every bit of information is there. The simple to use tools that come on the disk can easily be modified to fit your tournament. Great book filled with the information to be successful. We are now going to modify what we had are well on the way to have a quality local fund raising tournament is late September or early October 2016. Easy reading and informative.
