Best range promotion: In 2017, the staff at Sycamore Hills Golf Club provided 16 weeks of complimentary clinics to all ladies at the club. This was a great way to increase the enjoyment of our female members, teaching them everything from the basic golf swing, to specialty shots, to
golf etiquette and common practices on the course. We have seen an increase in our ladies league numbers, merchandise sales, individual lessons and overall range activity. It was an extremely successful program that will continue to drive the expansion of our ladies programs at the club.

Special Programs: The Vera Bradley Classic is an event hosted at Sycamore Hills Golf Club to raise money for Breast Cancer Research. The Vera Bradley Classic consists of nearly 200 players, and provides over a million dollars to Breast Cancer research annually.

The Youth for Christ tournament is an event hosted at Sycamore Hills Golf Club that helps to promote outreach programs for youth in the local and regional areas. This event has provided the funds to maintain and operate these facilities for the past 20 years.

The Women’s Care Center tournament is an event hosted at Sycamore Hills Golf Club that helps to raise money for shelters that house and treat battered women, single mothers or anyone else that needs a helping hand in the local and regional communities.

Blessings in a backpack is an outstanding event that raises funds to provide meals for children in the local community when they come from a home scenario that does not provide the necessary dietary requirements for a growing child. It is one of our highest attending events, raising nearly a million dollars to provide for the children in our local area.
