Best range promotion: Super demo Saturday with seven equipment companies, free refreshments and range balls. We were the first practice facility to do multi vendor demo days more than 20 years ago. The reps claim ours is the best one they attend every year!  Every pro works the tee line, we do $10,000 that day alone with about the same in residual sales coming later

Special programs: We discount range balls to IJGA Jr. golfers. We also discount range use and lessons to our local high school. We donate to numerous charities in the area!
