Best range promotion: Instead of only one promotion, I feel compelled to mention two successful promotions.
“Guest for the Day” is a spring/fall promotion that offers each golfer unlimited daily use of the driving range, short game area and golf course for only $20.00! They even receive a pack of Links & Tees logo tees, ball repair tool and ball marker.

Promotion number two that has been quite successful is our Sunday “Biggie Size” special. Similar to McDonalds,
golfers can purchase a large basket of range balls and be automatically upgraded to an extra large for no additional charge!

Special programs: 2013 Special Community Programs have included; Hosted the first “Addison Open”, a made for television 9 hole event featuring local celebrities and raised money for local charities. Hosted and partnered with the Village of Addison and Addison Trail High School in hosting a golf/ mini golf fundraising
event to raise money to send high school students to Triggiano, Italy, our “sister city.” Partnered with a neighboring community to develop a summer junior program that lasted six weeks and entailed fun
instruction and on course mentoring. 50+ youths attended weekly during the first year of this program!
