Eagle Landing Golf Course – Happy Valley, Oregon

Allison George, the Wizard of Fun at her family’s golf course in Iowa, has been in the golf business since she was two. Having grown up on the golf course, she has had her hands in all aspects of the game and running a business. It all began with helping her dad change cups, moving on to mowing as a teenager and working the snack bar to her current position in management.

With her can do attitude, Allison has created many successful programs bringing new golfers to the game and filling her tee sheet. Two years ago, she became obsessed with figuring out how to create solid online marketing strategies and began studying extensively how to bring more people to the game using social media and a bigger online presence. With a little grit and perseverance, Allison has been able to achieve higher revenues by selling from her website and targeting her marketing audience to appeal to the many types of customers who come to her course. Her family’s golf course is an 18 hole facility with Events Center, miniature golf course, driving range and golf shop. The Wizard of Fun is proof that all you need is enthusiasm for the game to gain success. She has a degree in English Education. In order not to waste her parent’s money on her college education, she uses it daily. After all, she speaks English fluently.
