Tumbledown Trails Golf Course 9/11 Discount Promotion Is Bad
It seems like for some reason 9/11 brings out the worst in certain businesses. Each year we hear about sour sales gimmicks dealing with such a bad day for our nation. This year, the Tumbledown Trails Golf Course takes the cake.
According to DeadSpin, the golf course had a coupon with the following offer:
“To Commemorate this (the 12th anniversary of 9-11) we are offering 9 holes with cart for only $9.11 per person or 18 holes with cart for only $19.11! 9/11/13 Only!”
Why in the world would they have thought this was a great idea? As you can imagine, things ended poorly for this promotion already.
The golf course has posted the following apology on Facebook:
Then they posted this:
Word of advice, skip trying to come up with 9/11 promotion ideas.
We all remember where we were and what we were doing on that fateful day eleven years ago when the entire nation was affected by the greatest tragedy that has ever made it’s way onto our soil. We are still feeling the affects of those events more than a decade later.
