Best range promotion: Some new items and programs that were added to the Practice Facility at TPC Potomac this year included fresh marketing material highlighting the instructional offerings, a fantastic Michael Breed clinic during Men’s Member Guest that generated 120
TItleist Vokey Wedge sales and finally a greater presence from the PGA Professional Staff during heavy usage times to promote club and lesson sales through casual conversations. We also added a much larger “on-deck” putting green near our first tee. The old green was approximately 2,000 sq. ft. with the renovated green measuring over 9,000 sq. ft.
Special programs: We annual host the Birdies for the Brave Charity Fundraising Tournament at no charge to the event. This is a PGA TOUR and TPC Network charitable initiative that generates approximately $50,000 each year that goes directly towards nine home-front charities that assist with our military men and women in many forms. In addition, we host Restaurant Week with funds being raised with each meal sold for a local food bank. For the week our club generated over $3,600. Also, during the holiday season our club assists with a food drive in which we are regularly able to donate over 500 lbs. of food to the Manna Food Bank of Montgomery County.
