Best range promotion: The best promotion this year has been offering a free six hole “rounds” of golf for any adult that brings a junior golfer to hit at least a small bucket of balls. Our costs do not increase by giving away the rounds of golf and it helps promote our “short” course and gets kids out on the course having fun with their parent.

Special programs: We have a junior clinic that we host once a month called “Clubs for Kids”. Juniors from 5 to 18 years of age that have never played, or do not have golf equipment, are invited to attend. Our Club Repair Specialist is on site along with our staff of PGA Professionals and we fit a 6 or 7 iron (old fitiing clubs) for each player and cut them down and regrip them. We have over 300 fitting clubs we have accumulated over the last nineteen years and we found a perfect way to use them by fitting them to juniors. This is an inexpensive way to introduce new players to the game and help promote our facility.
