Best range promotion: Player development program to help students pass PAT. At the beginning of each semester students are given a Performance Analysis Record (PAR) test to measure their ball striking, putting, chipping, pitching, bunker play, etc. Then we meet once a week for 12 weeks to improve each aspect of their game. During this time we focus on random practice drills and do competitions to help prepare them for competitive golf. During the year we offer over 24 tournaments for the students (members) to gain tournament experience in and we track their golf round statistics and average scores. All
students (members) are allowed to take unlimited private golf lessons with our staff of 6 PGA Professionals.

Special Programs: Wounded Warrior Clinics: we offer weekly Wounded Warrior clinics with a 1:1 student to instructor ratio. In the clinics we cover ball striking, short game, course management, and mental game. Board of Visitors golf tournament, our students caddy for each participant and each group has one of our players join the group to play and represent our program. Junior golf we teach summer camps, clinics, and private lessons. We have brought in 30-40 kids from Grays Creek Middle School to teach kids golf, and we brought in 30 kids from Long Hill Elementary School to introduce them to the game of golf.
