Best range promotion: Our best range promotion has been the development of our pre-paid range card. This allows customers to pre-pay a balance that is maintained on the card and then when they use the card to redeem for range balls they receive more range balls or better pricing per ball than regular range token customers. This program has increased use and loyalty.

Special programs: Our facility, in conjunction with DC Public Schools and the MAPGA, hosts the Paul Berry Hook a Kid on GolfProgram. This program occurs for 6-8 weeks from mid-April to beginning of June, twice a week, and teaches high school kids how to play golf. The program is free for the kids and each year a scholarship to college is awarded to one of the kids.
