PGA Tour Books Deal With Omni Hotel & Resorts, Supports Say Goodnight To Hunger 

NYSJ Sports-Entertainment Business News Service

June 26, 2018: Some deals are more valuable than others, especially when they go beyond the perimeters of traditional marketing and seek to enhance the community and the lives of the people in them.

The PGA Tour has signed a multi-year deal naming Omni Hotels & Resorts as the official hotel partner of the PGA Tour and PGA Tour Champions.

Financial details of the pact, which runs through 2022 and represents Omni’s first major league-wide sponsorship, were not released.

The alliance was organic as Omni’s destination of 60 hotels includes 12 golf resorts featuring more than 25 golf courses designed by award-winning golf architects.

The pact with PGA Tour comes with the usual marketing and activation bells and whistles,

But it also has an altruistic component that should impact people nationwide.

In honor of the two-year anniversary of Omni’s "Say Goodnight to Hunger" program — which launched in association with Feeding America — the company said it would help provide four meals for a family in need for every birdie-or-better made during each PGA Tour event.

On average, more than 60,000 birdies and eagles are recorded annually on Tour.

The meals will be donated through the local Feeding America food bank in each tournament’s home city in the U.S.

For international Tour stops, donations will be made to food banks in those regions.

“This partnership elevates our long-standing commitment to golf and highlights one of our core values of local market leadership,” Peter Strebel, president of Omni Hotels & Resorts, said in a statement.

“We wanted to include the Tour cities in our Say Goodnight to Hunger program, so we can give back and help more families.”

Since June 2016, Omni Hotels & Resorts has made a donation to Feeding America that provides a meal for every booking made.

Some nine million meals have been donated to help Feeding America provide nutritious meals for food banks to feed children, families and seniors in communities nationwide.

In addition, Omni said that all 60 of its properties “are actively participating by supporting food banks and pantries in their local communities where they live, work and play.

“During the past year, more than 5,000 Omni associates have volunteered almost 7,000 hours of their time, talent and compassion to help this important mission in their communities,” according to Omni.

Multi-media marketing support includes an activation under which Omni would provide a variety of benefits to players, including the “highest-level membership in Omni’s Select Guest loyalty program and a designated number of room nights for members of the PGA Tour, PGA Tour Champions and Web.com Tour.”

PGA Tour marketing partners also include Ace, Arby’s, Astellas, Avis, Bridgestone, Career Builder, Carey, CDW, Charles Schwab, Citi, Coca-Cola, FedEx, Grey Goose, John Deere, Konica Minolta, MasterCard, MetLife, Michelob Ultra, Microsoft, Mitsubishi Electric, Morgan Stanley, NetJets, O’Douls, Rocket Mortgage by Quicken Loans, Rolex, Tiffany, Travelers and United.

Earlier this month, PGA Tour signed a 12-year deal with media company Discovery to create "an international multi-platform home for golf, delivering the sport’s most exciting moments, players and championships to passionate fans around the world on every screen and device.”

The partnership, to begin in 2019, would include global multi-platform live rights —  outside the U.S. — to all PGA Tour media properties, totaling about 2,000 hours of content per year.

According to Brian Oliver, evp-corporate partnership for the PGA Tour, “Our players and their families will enjoy experiencing all that Omni properties have to offer.

“In addition to a terrific opportunity to showcase Omni’s properties, this relationship highlights our shared commitment to giving back. We are excited to help highlight and advance Omni’s commitment to feeding families and reducing hunger nationwide through its Say Goodnight to Hunger initiative.”

In 2016, there was $84.1 billion in activity directly driven by golf, including $34.4 billion in revenue from golf courses, clubs, resorts, driving ranges and other facilities; and $25.7 billion in golf-related tourism spending, according to the U.S. Golf Economy Report from We Are Golf, released in April

Overall, the golf industry supported $191.9 billion in total annual activity, including 1.89 million jobs and $58.7B in wages and benefits, according to St. Augustine, Fla.-based We Are Golf, a coalition of the game’s top associations and industry partners.
