Best range promotion: In an effort to make golf practice more fun and have people come more often, we created free-to-try “skills challenges” on the range and practice green. Every month there are designated sessions for “Hit the Ball Through the Window” target set up at close-range on the range, mini-golf with plastic obstacles on the putting green for adults/kids, and target rings for chipping on the practice green. Additionally, we added free contests such as “guess your driver swing speed” or “beat the pro chipping in the barrel” where customers could win free range buckets.
