Best range promotion: Practice with a Pro. Scheduled half-hour sessions 8-9 times/month, where a staff pro is on the range giving free tips. Customers must bring range balls, so it encourages them to buy balls to get the free tips. These sessions create rapport between our pros and customers, which has led to lessons, pro shop sales, clubfittings, club repair, etc.
