Best range promotion: Our best range promotion is our junior golf team, the Parkland Gophers, which uses the range every Friday for an hour and a half program. They prepare for tournaments and play against other clubs in the county. The kids range from ages 6-13 and as they increase their skill, they receive different colored hats like in a karate system. We have the No. 1 team in Broward county.
Special programs: One program we have done is with Parkland Buddies, a group that promotes athletic activity for kids with special-needs. About 15 kids came to the range for a 5-week program this past spring and learned how to hold a golf club and then swing. We started with SNAG equipment, which went over really well. They are coming back for another 5-week program in 2016.
