Best range promotion: Every member received a free gapping session, where we spent an hour with him/her, had them hit all of their clubs and used our FlightScope to measure how far they actually hit each club. It was a great learning experience for our members (and staff!) and it led to great sales in hybrids, wedges, and all clubs in general.

Special programs: Annual host to LPGA tour event, YouthVillages/ChristieCare Oregon PGA classic.
