Best range promotion: One of our most success programs was our off site junior program at several local schools. We took our Kwik Golf Equipment (www.kwikgolf.com) to several schools and conducted an introductory program in after care programs in elementary and middle schools. On the last day of each program, the participants and their families were invited to the club to transition to “green grass” and learn about the club. This program resulted in upwards of $50,000 in additional revenue comprised of dues from new members, new junior program participants, range use, and private lessons. We use our practice areas for many things including skills challenges, Kwik Golf events, and scavenger hunts. In a time where all revenue is important, one can drive additional revenue to the facility by using the practice area as more than just a practice area.
Special programs: In addition to our school program that was extremely successful, we have also conducted our Kwik Golf program at the local YMCA to expose even a larger base to golf. By reaching into the community through schools and the YMCA, we are becoming known as a family friendly facility and have developed a comprehensive junior program that takes the kids from toddlers to college (Little Golfers, Forward Tees, Championship Tees, Elite Junior, College Prep).
