Enger Park’s Golf Range has a new Range Ball Dispenser which credit/debit cards can be used at the dispenser to purchase balls saving customers time walking back and forth to the clubhouse for range codes.

“It’s been a great feature for our customers to purchase balls at the Ball Dispenser which is a nice convenience to standing in line waiting in the clubhouse," said Craig Smith, Enger Park Golf general manager. "For those still wishing to pay cash, they will need to visit the clubhouse but we’ve been seeing about 80% of our customers going directly to the machine.”

A new Range Card that offers customers buckets for a reduced rate.

"Range Cards are available first by visiting the pro shop and signing up for the program," said Smith. "Options are $120 of range balls for $100, $240 worth of range balls for $200, and $360 worth of balls for $300.”

Once customers are in the program and have registered they will be able to revalue their cards right at the ball machine and receive the same discount.
