Best range promotion: When customers bought equipment this year, they were offered a point for every dollar they spent on driver, irons, hybrid, putters and specialty irons and range balls to be used with their Player’s Club membership. The Player’s Club members can redeemed the points throughout the year towards golf, cart and range balls. This promotion was very popular with the customers and helped with the overall growth of our Player’s Club and kept our customers loyal to buying equipment from us instead of going elsewhere.
