Best range promotion: Two of the best promotions that we ran last season were our Annual member Lesson Academy and our large demo days. The lesson academy is a 17 clinic program in which we conduct clinics on everything a golfer would need, including
putting, driving, etiquette, and course management. The other main program that gained traction was our giant demo days. We conducted 5 separate demo days which resulted in significant sales. We had Nike, Titleist, TaylorMade, and Cobra host events.

Special programs: We have a very strong relationship with two schools on Marco Island, FL. The Marco Island Academy and the Marco Island Charter Middle use our facilities for their practices and also for their matches. We also have worked with the First
Tee of Naples/Collier and have been a host location for their program. As a Marriott Golf facility, we focus on our Spirit to Serve our Community philosophy. This is always near to our heart as a team.
