Best range promotion: Speed Lessons: TPC Jasna Polana is a high end private club that does not play many member rounds during the week as many of our members work and commute to NYC/Philadelphia. Most of our traffic comes on the weekend. Because most of our members are looking to play and not take time with lessons we created a program called speed lessons. A lot like speed dating, A PGA Professional is up on the practice tee on weekend morning offering his services for 15 minutes at a time. The goal is to provide the members with ‘one thing’ to take to the course. We have seen success with this program ass members are coming back for more and more private lessons.
