Best range promotion: The best promotion that we ran was a lesson academy for our membership. We offered 18 clinics throughout the season that covered putting, chipping, pitching, full swing, bunkers, specialty shots, and the mental game. The academy had approximately 70 participants.

Special programs: We offer several programs at our facility. We have allowed the First Tee of Naples/Collier County access to our facility several times throughout the year and they have recently worked with a local school to establish six-week courses for the school children. We also work closely with two other middle and high schools to allow their students to use our range to grow their game. We as teachers also try to volunteer our time to these causes.
