Team Building Spotlight: Golf Cart Scavenger Hunt
Finding a team building activity for a diverse crowd can be difficult. You have to take into consideration your meeting attendee demographics. Will both men and women find it entertaining? Will it be enjoyed by people of different ages? Will it be appropriate for all levels of physical abilities?
One event that has been enjoyed by many groups from different industries and meeting types is the Golf Cart Scavenger Hunt in Peachtree City, Georgia. Located 30 minutes south of Atlanta, Peachtree City is a small golf cart community where 35% of the residents own a golf cart. With over 100 miles of multi-use paths, winding thru parks around lakes into neighborhoods—the entire community is accessible via paths.
Peachtree City is also home to two group meeting facilities. The Crown Plaza Atlanta SW Peachtree City features 230 guest rooms and 63,000 square feet of meeting space including 59 certified IACC meeting rooms. The Peachtree City Hotel & Conference Center offers 250 guest rooms and 30,000 square feet of meeting space. Both properties utilize the paths to offer a unique team building event.
Groups meeting at one of the two Conference Centers can experience a fun team-building event that attendees will talk about for years. The Golf Cart Scavenger Hunt can be customized for groups of 10-200. Groups can either be given a list of items to collect or take pictures of and are given a time limit to find items. Another option is that groups are given a path map and clues to a location. Once they reach their destination, there is a timed challenge for the team. The challenge can be anything from getting a t-shirt out of a giant block of ice to solving complex puzzles, to trying to get a cookie from your forehead to your mouth without using your hands. The teams work together to strategize and encourage each other. After the event, teams attend a reception where different awards are given out and everyone enjoys videos, photos and laughter.
The event can be facilitated by the meeting planner or by a local vendor such as Entertainment Productions. The Peachtree City Convention and Visitors Bureau provide resources and financial assistance for groups. Rates range from $25.00 – $100.00 per person and are based upon the number of participants, length of time (2-4 hours), reception inclusions and prizes. The golf cart scavenger hunt is fun for everyone involved and allows meeting attendees to get outdoors and engage with each other to build camaraderie.
