Best range promotion: We include our range balls inside of the membership fee for our members, and provide unlimited range access to all of our resort guests. We have also started a “Practice Club” where members can experience supervised practice to support and reinforce what they may be working on with their individual instructors.

Special programs: We have launched an After Care in School Program at two local elementary schools. Through the resources of the PGA Sports Academy and Kwik Golf, we send instructors to the schools for a six week instruction program after school. On the sixth week, the students and their families are invited to PGA National for a special evening devoted to them showcasing the resort and transitioning the kids from golf at school to the course.
