Biggest Loser Program (Wednesday 9-1030AM)
Bill developed the “biggest loser” program from the popular TV show! Similar to the TV show, where people compete to see who can lose the most weight, golfers will compete in order to see which player can shave the most amount of strokes off their handicaps. This program is stretched over a 6 month period with monthly standing updates. At the end of the program the winner of each pod will win free instruction. This program begins with verification of each player’s current handicap. The players will then be broke into pods (groups) to compete against each other. 6 players per pod. This program is capped off at 12 players.
3 sessions per month: Group setting touching all areas of the game
6 month program: April-September: $250 per month
Track teams progress monthly (leaderboard style)
Break players into two pods (1 winner per pod)
Winning players receive 3 free instruction hours used anyway they wish!

Special programs: We host the local first tee chapter(Raritan Valley, NJ) for a week of camps and golf for under privileged kids from our community. Camps involve many coaches playing games and working on skills in fun environments. Cookout and golf to end the week. We are involved in local town fairs hosting a booth with Fiddler’s signature pizza pies and a large birdie ball golf area for people to try golf or take a five minute lesson.
