Best range promotion: During our Member-Guest Tournament, we set up the practice short game green like a putting course. We put out sand hazards, twigs, tee boxes, out of bounds, doglegs, and par ratings. Contestants were allowed to enter as many times as they liked and for our first year doing it, the fun they had was remarkable. It proved to be something different that we will continue to do for Member-Guest tournaments in the future.

Special programs: At our facility, we open ourselves to a local high school, Sussex Tech High School, so that they may have a great facility in which to hone and develop their skills. We also open ourselves to the Delaware State Golf Association for open play days for their women’s association and executive women’s association. Partnering with the DSGA allows us to gain exposure with golf enthusiasts who may, in the off chance, promote our facility to a potential homebuyer and new member.
