Best range promotion: We will bring out several of our demo drivers and set up our Trackman software. We let players use their driver, and then use our driver and compare it on Trackman. People are first amazed by the Trackman technology and end up booking a lesson, but also everyone is so enthralled by numbers that Trackman shows them to provide the difference between the two drivers. This has resulted in numerous driver sales for us.

Special programs: We are a chapter of the First Tee Program and have over 200 kids come through the program a year. We did a special program last November and December where we asked our guest to bring a canned food or a toy to receive a discount on their golf round. We collected over 400 cans of food and almost 200 toys and gave them to a local charity in our town. PGA Magazine also wrote an article about our efforts.
