Best range promotion:

The best promotion was in great detail describing our policies in a Covid 19 year. To include dividers were 6 yards apart instead ofCDC guidelines of 6 feet, describing our cleaning of interior, simply cementing down credit card terminals, cleaning every bucket and every ball after every use, and doing a great job of socially distancing by staff, as well as masking indoors for all of us, with doors opened so that there was constant airflow, etc.

Special programs:

Johnston Community Education programs

Facilitate First Tee of Central, Iowa

Facilitate over a dozen high school and college men’s and women’s golf teams at no charge or cost

Facilitate and teach home school golf programs at no charge or costs.

As a lone stand alone golf range in the capital city of Des Moines, PGA professionals at facilities that do not have ranges, or have retired, have free use of the facility as if it were their own.

We facilitate other youth programs for the children from communities that golf may not usually expose the youth to golf.
