Best range promotion: Our best range promotion continues to be our holiday gift certificates. When you buy $50 you get a $10 bonus and when you spend $100 you get a $25 bonus. The bonus is only valid January 1st-March 31st, so this requires them to come back early in the year. We did over $42,000 in holiday gift certificates this past December.

Special programs: We have 3 groups with special needs that use our golf facility on an ongoing basis. We offer discounts to the over 20 high school golf teams that use are facility and offer free use of clubs through the Sticks For Kids program.
