Best range promotion: We charge $59 for five, one-hour group clinics. We sold 480 packages. We had setup 100 clinic dates with a capacity of 20 students in each. The promotion generated approximately $10,000 in instruction revenue and $18,000 in range revenue.

Special programs: We run our own version of the Hook-A-Kid on Golf Program. We call our program “Tee It Up Fore Kids”. The program is run through the local township and provides five days of instruction, a set of golf clubs, awards, and lunch for each participant. There is no cost to the participants. The equipment and instructors are provided by us at a significant discount, and only to cover costs.

We also have hosted two Drive, Chip & Putt Regional contests through the PGA of America. Most recently, we hosted Ben Crenshaw in June for a complimentary short game clinic on our expansive short game area.
