There were 100 pre-scheduled clinics to accommodate participants and have had every clinic nearly filled. The program generated $13,000 in instruction revenue and $6,000 in range revenue. The program also led to over 20 private, individual lessons for the instructors.

Special programs:

  • Tee It Up FORE Kids – Similar to the Hook a Kid on Golf program, this is a program run through the DuPage Township and features 4 separate clinics of 25 juniors. Each participant receives a set of clubs, a cap, an awards pizza party and a complimentary driving range membership for the remainder of the current season.
  • PGA Junior League – Solicited local businesses to sponsor our PGA Junior League which helped provide golf balls, additional instruction and a season-ending event for the participants.
  • Donate clubfitting and golf instruction to non-profit golf outings.
  • Complimentary Junior Golf Open House – Hosted 2 complimentary events in the early spring which featured indoor golf, speed golf, a bounce house, popcorn, movie and golf instruction. This event was to gear up kids for the 2014 season and promote our junior program. Between both open house events, we saw a total of 125 kids in attendance.
