This weekend, your local Golfsmith will be hosting Nike's National Golf Day - which features Nike product demos, discounts, etc. But Facebook fans of both Nike Golf and Golfsmith get the VIP treatment with a free sleeve of Nike ONE Vapor golf balls and a 30% trade-in bonus on new Nike clubs: It is interesting to see Nike and Golfsmith tag-team across Facebook and provide exclusive, high value offers to fans. That's just the first step: fans have to then "check in at the store": Golfsmith will have in-store Facebook "fan check-in stations" for fans to broadcast and promote their experience.

Considering the partnership, in-store program and offer (which is compelling to golfers) - there are several steps to the program. Screenshots and explanation are below:

Visit your local Golfsmith store on June 26th for the Nike National Golf Day event (10am - 6pm) and, from 4:30pm - 6pm, facebook fans get exclusive prizes, discounts, and come to win big in the Guess Your Drive contest! It's our way to say "Thanks" for joining the Golfsmith family!
