Best range promotion: We offered seasonal range passes for the membership and allowed junior to hit balls for free.

Special programs: The participation of the Patriot Day (Fold of Honor Foundation) has been an event that has been successful at Inverness Club and benfited the community. As far as promoting the game we are one of the last clubs to have a “mandatory” caddie program. Our caddie program is youth based (must be in school to caddie) and we have over 300 teenagers receive a paycheck in any given year. Since our program is youth based we do close to 10,000 caddie rounds per year. In the fall of every year we also host both a boys and a girls high school event that Inverness does not charge them for.
