Best range promotion: Because we are in an active flood plain, we have to be careful we don’t create a promotion that we can’t deliver. Due to that fact, we rarely discount our range balls, except for some select coupons in the late summer (our hot and dry season).

  • The demo days are always well attended and have been successful for both sales and the manufacturers.
  • With several teachers on staff- walk the line once a week for a few hours giving free lessons and advice. The customers appreciate the service and many will purchase follow up lessons, making the effort a win/win.
  • Believe that the key to a sustainable golf business is constantly creating new players. Once a new golfer is created, a great facility is there to help them get started and improve. This is also a way to maximize the revenue on the range, golf course and pro-shop.
