Best range promotion: The best promotion that we had was a junior demo day this past year. We had all of our club manufactures displayed, had three interactive games that they could play (long drive, closest to the pin, putting contest) and then after we gave a brief description of what 2013 was going to include, we opened up our range to a Wee Links. Wee Links is a golf course on our golf range that caters to the junior golfer that cannot yet go out onto the course. It was a great success.

Special programs: We have orchestrated a Get Golf Ready program every year for the past eight years. We have refined the program so that you must be a golf member or social member in order to join the Get Golf Ready program. The program was a success this year as we held one in the spring that had 12 participants.
