Best range promotion: Our best 2012 range promotion was our Short Game Demo Day. We have a short range which consists of 2 short game practice greens with 6 bunkers (4 sand, 2 grass) connected by 100 yards of fairway grass. The area also has a large putting only surface. Club companies were able to showcase their wedge and putter assortments and the importance of fitting in these critical areas. The staff was also given the opportunity to educate club members on the importance of short game fitting as well.

Special programs: Junior Golf programs for elementary schools, Clubs for kids with chance clinic and Best Buddies clinics
