Please indicate any Growth of the Game initiatives your facility/academy has launched over the past year (please give specifics on such programs):
This year is my first year at Druid Hills. We have revamped the Junior Program by adding an Operation 36 Junior Academy. This has increased Junior Golf participation by 150% at the club. We also added a Ladies Operation 36 Academy. Prior to me coming ladies golf lessons were flat and only offered as private lessons. Since adding the Ladies Academy we have a weekly class of 12 ladies 10 months out of the year. We have also started weekly beginner clinics and a cigar club for men to take a one hour clinic and smoke a cigar with friends.
Please share any programming you have made to keep your customers & students engaged:
This year we opened our Golf Performance Center and a Simulator Room at the club. Ways I have programmed to keep my students engaged is by creating a performance center league for my students. They can come and play round in the simulator, complete the Trackman combine and practice in the simulator or utilize our extra lesson bay to track data. This keeps them engaged with lesson performance and working on their games.
I also use SportsBox AI app to keep my students engaged with me in-between lessons.
