To stand out to your Members in a crowded advertising marketplace this Easter, cross-promotions have the potential for a big payoff both for increased usage by your Club, and member satisfaction by your Membership.

  1. Print joint promotional messages on your receipts.
  2. Offer a reduced price, special service, or convenience if Members make reservations at certain events, or buy products from you pro shop or fitness center.
  3. Hang signs or posters promoting your featured upcoming event, but also include a “save the date” section.
  4. Drop 5×7 postcard promotions in kid’s Easter Baskets.
  5. Send featured reminder emails about Easter Sunday, with 2 of your next events and promotions included below the feature.
  6. Encourage your staff to mention your upcoming events and ask Members if they are planning to attend.

Jordan Spieth House: Tour Golf’s Best Player’s $7.1 million Dallas mansion

One of the best golfers in the world is living large in Dallas. See Inside Jordan Spieth’s New $7.1 Million Mansion. The house originally listed for $8.5 Million.

The 22-year-old golfer, currently ranked No. 1 in the world, opened his 2016 season with a dominant win at the Hyundai Classic. In 2015, he made a whopping $53 million. Last April, he bought a $2.3 million home in the affluent Preston Hollow neighborhood of Dallas.

Now, he’s added a second Preston Hollow mansion to his collection — this one for $7.1 million.

According to The Dallas Morning News, Spieth purchased the five-bedroom, six-full- and two-half-bathroom house in an exclusive gated community within Preston Hollow from fellow Under Armour PGA golfer Hunter Mahan, who originally listed the house for $9.5 million in 2014.
