Best range promotion: Since adding our Golf Suites in 2014, we have been able to continually improve our services and programs. This past year, we offered our “Sips, Swings and Suites” program for members of the Madison Chapter of the Executive Women’s Golf Association. We use one of our 3-Tee Golf Suites and provide range balls, one drink ticket and golf instruction from a PGA Professional from our Vitense Golf Academy. The provides many benefits such as promoting our year round golf range, our grill & bar service on the golf range, and golf instruction from our Academy. The immediate benefit is the revenue produced from additional food & beverage and range ball sales.

Special programs: We are the home site of The First Tee of South Central Wisconsin. We partner with them to provide community based youth programming. Not only are the core values of golf taught at our golf course and year round golf range, but also there is supervised homework provided. Kids that may have difficulty completing homework at home have an opportunity to complete such work and a safe, professional, friendly and supervised environment.
