Best range promotion: Our Golf Expo (demo day) brings in about 15 golf companies and allows our members and guests to try new equipment along with shoes, clothes, and other golf related items. Our teeing space lets us host the largest one in the area. Food and beverages are served on the range and leads to a pleasant afternoon and evening for all who attend. Having the putting green and chipping and chipping area in close proximity to the tee encourages trying out putters and wedges also which leads to more sales.

Special programs: We host the Chaska Invitational along with the city public course. Its a junior tournament (21 boys and 21 girls) featuring the top juniors in the state paired with the top juniors from the local area.
