Best range promotion: Fall Junior Team Golf- This is a program held exclusively at out learning center and driving range. We have 32 participants. 4 teams of 8. This year our teams are Penn State, Ohio State, Michigan, Notre Dame. Each team has a custom jersey where they can pick out nickname and number in addition to the college team and LedgeRock logo. Every Saturday the teams face off in a series of approximately 8 different golf/football themed games. One of our favorites is Field Goal Full Swing. We purchased 2 uprights from Amazon. Each junior gets 3 attempts to hit a shot through the uprights. The closest one is an extra point, and the farther one is a field goal. Whichever team has the most points wins that event. We also do a putting relay race where the kids need to run approximately 50 yards, make a 3 foot putt, and then tag the next person in line. Whichever team finishes first wins that event. Our HUGE grass tee area allows us to do all of these things without having to cart 32 kids onto the golf course. Parents stay at our patio which is close by and hang out by the fire pit. We do a pretty good amount of food and beverage during these events.
Special programs: We set up an indoor mini golf course at the DoubleTree Hotel in downtown Reading for a Habitat for Humanity Fundraiser. There were hundreds of people that tried our course, and it was one of the highlights of the event! I also volunteer along with a few other
staff members at the Reading Phillies Stadium for an event called Touch a Truck that benefits the Junior League of Reading. We set up a fun golf station with SNAG equipment and run about 300 kids through it in the day.
