Best range promotion: We offered guests the opportunity to purchase a season long range pass. Since we are owned by a large corporation we offered associates the opportunity to purchase the pass for a discounted price. Many associates took advantage of the pass and utilized the practice area during a lunch break or after work.

Special programs: Get Golf Ready clinics. Resort and public golfers were invited to participate in a five week instructional program that focused on all aspects of the game. The program concluded with a nine hole event on one of our golf courses.
