Best range promotion: The free club and swing analysis has been outstanding. It offers a 15 minute analysis of your swing with one of the PGA pros as well as an analysis of your club’s performance vs. the latest clubs from top manufacturers. The Master Club Fitter conducts the analysis using Flightscope technology. It has drawn new faces out to our facility and has been a great conversation starter for staff with guests. It is a conduit for encouraging lesson bookings and equipment sales. Golfers really enjoy seeing how their current equipment performs vs. the newest, latest, greatest clubs and getting a no cost tune up lesson and advice on what they can work on to improve.

Special programs: Went on a barnstorming tour of some of the major employers in a 5 mile radius of Fox Hollow. Worked with HR departments to set up “lunch and learn” sessions in the conference rooms at major employers. The team of PGA pros brought in a boxed lunch as well as a portable putting 10 foot putting green. Gave a brief PowerPoint presentation at each company talking about our different services and amenities. Then had a Q&A session where golfers could ask questions.  The interaction was great and it has been amazing how these little programs to 15-40 people has driven new customers and created a buzz amongst the business community. Working to expand the program next year
