  • Tournament Evaluation/survey trial

    I have always thought that we need some sort of form players can fill out post event about their experiences at our tournaments. The days of pro payout only being the bench mark needs to go the way of the dodo bird.
    The idea is to post this on google for each individual event that requests it. Then player will be given a password to access their particular events survey.

    These results will be made available to the TD, the state rep (if pDGA event) and series representatives. This is a first draft and ideas will be considered and implemented if deemed necessary. thanks jub

    That's a decent start. I would recommend rating each topic on a scale of one to five. That will make it a lot easier to average scores.

      i think that is a great idea. two local tourneys last year i will not be playing again and it would be nice to let the directors know why without sounding like i am just complaining. I think it is important to let a director know what everyone thought and what they liked/ didn't like without sounding unappritiative of the hard work they put in. I pesonally have never given any feedback to a director because they have so many people complaining about every little detail all weekend

        Also a good idea to survey money type stuff both for the event, for vendors and for other local buisness... Information about spending could be very helpful in getting sponsors.

          Those are all good ideas the format is one I am familiar with
          1-5 baskets could be the basic choices.
          The trick will be
          A to get TD's to ask
          B players to respond
          C TD's Actually listen to results

          The idea of the spending should be done separately and often

                I would recommend a scale of 1 to 4, if you use 1 to 5 you get too many fence sitters marking 3, 1 to 4 makes them make a decision.

                  I think there should be more emphasis about the money and value of the tournament.

                  If you pay $45 to play in the tournament, and the payouts suck, the TD needs to be made aware of this.

                  A decent players pack, decent trophies, and generous payouts in each division is a big factor for a lot of players.

                    I totally think the sheet idea is awesome. I would love to give TD's a way of seeing the feedback about how their tourney could be improved.

                    The only problem is having a TD listen to the players about it. Especially if the tournament itself was having major issues. I played three last year and everyone of them was great. Would of loved to be able to show my appreciation with a spread sheet though.

                    Payouts are nice but not the main reason I play a tournament. Bragging rights are more important to me. Of course since I'm only playing am, the payouts don't really effect me at the moment. One day I'm sure I'll have somethings to say about poor payouts for an expensive tournament. When I reach that level of play that is.

                      Agreed and the rating should state:

                      How did we do?

                      Ace.......Birdie.........Par............Bogey?

                          If you're going to do this survey process, I suggest using a service like Survey Monkey to handle all of the processing and have it available online rather than mess around with paper and data entry. It also allows some anonymity for respondents. Yes, I know some players don't have internet access so you could have a paper form for them if the TD was really willing to enter their responses.

                            Numerical responses are easier to average. I suppose you could do combine both:

                            1. Ace
                            2. Birdie
                            3. Par
                            4. Bogey
                            5. Bob

                              An online survey sounds the best to me, anybody know what they cost?

                              As far as the number of options, I like an odd number. I like the middle ground for things that were average.
