Best range promotion: Our best promotion continues to be our two hour corporate clinics where my assistant conducts a short game clinic on our short game range while I give 10 minute individual video lessons a few steps away in our indoor teaching
studio to all the participants. After the clinic, the participants receive a video of their lesson on a cd or an email letting them know what to work on to improve their game. After the clinic, the group congregates in our member lounge to enjoy some cocktails and hors doerves making for a great day for the host and their guests. Our members love this
option to entertain guests/clients without taking an entire day to play 18 holes.

Special programs: We continue to work with the First Tee Program of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky by offering complimentary clinics in our indoor practice facility.
