Best range promotion: We try and schedule a professional to be available at anytime to give a lesson. In the free time the professionals are up on the range talking to members and guest and giving them helpful hints with their golf swing. This ended up being a win win for the members and my staff. The members loved the extra attention they and their guest received and in return my staff received more request for private instruction. We have all heard it as golf professionals but one of the best things you can do is walk the line on your practice facility.

Special programs: Black Rock Country Club has a charity foundation called Black Rock Cares. This year the club raised over 7,000 dollars and donated over 40 sets of clubs to the signature charity Golf for All (, a regional charity that provides instruction and opportunity for all individuals with disabilities to learn and play the game of golf. Black Rock Cares also gives out thousands of dollars to local charities and families in need each year.
