Discounts of Instruction Rates
Market conditions and consumer preference can often lead to negotiation of golf lesson rates, as there is a great amount of competition with other golf professionals at other facilities. Each instructor is allowed to negotiate their rate no greater than 10% in order to attract more business. Any discount greater than 10% must be approved by the Director of Golf.
Group lessons are defined as four or more individuals for a single session. Multiple, repeating sessions are not classified as group instruction, unless a new fee is paid at the time of each group lesson. Group lessons can be discounted no more than 10% off the hourly rate.
F. 
Affinity Programs.
The golf course has unique opportunities to enter into agreements with local businesses, corporations and/or foundations that can mutually benefit both parties. Under the direction of the Township Manager, the Director of Golf shall have the authority to negotiate arrangements with discounts of not greater than 30% off greens fees range balls, and/or merchandise in order to attract additional business. Each affinity program negotiated shall be presented to Council for approval, and will follow the pricing outlined herein. The discounts and programs associated in each arrangement are only valid for the dates of the resolution and/or contract negotiated by the Director of Golf. The benefit to these arrangements is primarily public relations and marketing of both parties.
