A golf trophy is a sign of achievement and a personal triumph to the golfer of any age. Crystal golf trophies simply add a touch of elegance and classic beauty to that triumph. Crystal might actually be poured acrylic or glass or delicately hand etched crystal it depends on how much the organization can afford.
Crystal trophies that are well crafted can be made of a less expensive material than lead crystal and still be beautiful. A very attractive feature of crystal trophies is their adaptability to the needs of the organization. Crystal also melds beautifully with other materials and a crystal golf ball on top of a wooden or metal base can be beautiful.
Most organizations choose the trophy style before the event and some may order a series of trophies. When the name of the winner is known they might be sent to be engraved with the name. Rarely is the trophy ordered after the event since the trophy presentation ceremony is highly anticipated and public.
Trophies come in every size to fit every budget but also to fit the recipient. A junior golfing tournament winner might not be able to lift some of the larger trophies. There are small trophies that are made of crystal which measure only ten inches high. This smaller size may be appropriate for the smaller golfer as well as for organizations with a smaller budget.
While most frequently clubs give trophies in tournaments, they are hardly restricted to golf clubs or organizations, which hold tournaments. A crystal trophy could be an entirely appropriate retirement gift for the avid golfer from the office or from a friend. Crystal lends itself to the nontraditional uses as well and gracefully as it does for the traditional trophy giving.
Custom-made trophies that are designed exclusively for a particular tournament will present a greater cost to the organization awarding. However, this custom option may well be an excellent way of promoting golfing at a country club or other facility. Smaller organizations might prefer more budget friendly and standardized types of trophies.
Every tournament in times past was restricted to ordering they trophies from a local trophy shop or mail order. However, internet shopping is very common and can open up a world of goods to the organization shopping for unusual or inexpensive trophies. Though the means of obtaining the trophy may vary the beauty of crystal trophies is a constant that can please even the most discerning eye.
