Best range promotion: Through Living Social,we ran a special for One Hour Golf Lesson / One Hour Personal Training / Full Day Pass / One Hour of Golf Simulator Time. Value of $205 and sold for $79. We sold over 300 certificates for this. Got new people in door for lessons, training and to see our club for possible membership.

Special programs: We partnered with local non-profit (ICompete) to help under privileged children get introduced to the game of golf. Every kid got equipment with a full set of clubs and bag (all donated by our members). We also do a Golf-A-Thon for another non-profit (Rainbows) with all proceeds going to this organization.
