Best range promotion: We have an ongoing special available anytime any day – Beer Brat & Bucket (called the B3). This packages two important revenue areas of our facility (golf range & grill) to optimize and great savings benefit to the customer and increased revenues for our facility. We sell nearly 3,000 of these specials annually at a packaged price of $12.

Special programs: We partner with non-profit organizations on a regular basis to help them raise money for their organization; we share a portion of our revenue with them when they heavily promote to their target market for visiting at our facility. Successful Madison businesses also commit to a five-year sponsorship of each hole of our indoor miniature golf course.
