Please indicate any Growth of the Game initiatives your facility/academy has launched over the past year (please give specifics on such programs):
This past year I started a Ladies and Wine Clincs. It was a 5 one-hour lessons with wine after the lessons. I did one in April and ended up having to do 5 more throughout the year it was so popular.
I currently have one of the largest PGA Jr leagues in the Nation. In 2022 we had 189 kids participate.

Please share any programming you have made to keep your customers & students engaged:
With all my programs I am currently running- Ladies/Wine Clinics, 4-season junior golf program, PGA Jr League, Elite Junior golf program, cooperate clinics to individual lessons, I make sure everyone is having fun learning the game. I will have games and competitions set up for every age and ability during our lessons. In my junior golf programs, I have adapted the ADM Model. American Development Model. With this we are doing different activities then just golf. This helps the kids learn how to use their bodies in different movements then just the golf swing. This keeps everyone engaged in what we are trying to accomplish.
