Best range promotion:

The best range promotion we ran this past year was something called “Fun Friday”. During this event, we close the practice facility for normal operation at 1:00pm. We did so we could turn our driving range into a par 3 golf course using our target greens as the holes. In addition, we put speakers on the range to play all of the students’ favorite. We also set up multiple cornhole boards, “chip-pong” using buckets, a putting course using our 18,000 sq. foot putting green & snack bar so students can enjoy some food & drinks. We had contests on the par 3 & putting courses we constructed & gave away gift cards to those who placed in the contests. This was a fun way for the students to engage on our facility & practice at the same time.

Special programs:

Methodist University Golf Club is located in Fayetteville, North Carolina; home of one of the largest military bases in the country. We have a passion & full gratitude for our armed forces. So we started our own PGA Hope chapter. PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere) is the flagship military program of PGA REACH, the charitable foundation of the PGA of America. PGA HOPE introduces golf to Veterans with disabilities to enhance their physical, mental, social and emotional well-being.The program introduces the game of golf through a developmental 6-8 week curriculum, taught by PGA Professionals trained in adaptive golf and military cultural competency. The PGA professionals at our facility use our driving range facilities to give back our time for those in our community who gave everything.

Methodist University Golf Club uses our practice facilities to host a local qualifier for Drive, Chip & Putt. A joint initiative founded in 2013 by the Masters Tournament, United States Golf Association and The PGA of America, Drive, Chip and Putt is a free nationwide junior golf development competition aimed at growing the game by focusing on the three fundamental skills employed in golf. By tapping the creative and competitive spirit of girls and boys ages 7-15, Drive, Chip and Putt provides aspiring junior golfers an opportunity to play with their peers in qualifiers around the country. We host this qualifier because in order to grow the game of golf we need to do it with our youth in our local communities.
