Best range promotion: In March we run a special called “More Bang For your Buck”. This is the best time for customers to put money on their range card. $30.00 gets you $5.00 free, $50.00 gets you $10.00 free and $100.00 gets you $25.00 free. In Illinois, Golf season is just starting off, and we want to encourage people to start early and come back to us for practice throughout the year.

Special programs: We work with over 10 local high schools on a year round basis. Besides them holding practices and camps throughout the year at the Golf Center, all players receiev a 25% bonus throughout the year. We have three special recreation groups that use our facility for adults and kids with special needs. We conduct a food drive and coat drive once a year as well.
