Best range promotion: The best range promotion has been our range card program. Players can prepay for range balls on a range card that can be used right at the ball dispenser. This allows better customer service and less traffic in proshop. Its been a win-win and the customers really like the option. They get a number of options for dollar amounts on the card.

Special programs: We were part of the Inside Golf show which highlights the facility in the Philadelphia and surrounding area. We have offered many PGA Growth of the Game initiatives to get more people playing. Family night, 3, 6, 9 holes, Tee It Forward, US Kids tee markers, Get Golf Ready clinics for juniors and adults.
