The driving range has 6 mats open for players that want to practice hitting driver and fairtway woods. To the left of the mats, there is a grass range for players looking to practice their irons. There is a cart with range balls and buckets for taking balls to the mats and grass range. Players wishing to use the driving range must come to the Pro Shop to request a cart to take to the range.
At the short game area, two small buckets of balls will be provided. Please do not bring any more range balls down to the short game area.
In 2009 when members voted in favor of creating a new practice area, the Club committed to a complete set of facilities that would allow players to work on every aspect of their game. Two of the then twelve holes were used for the practice facilities.
The former 7th hole became our 250-yard driving range with an adjacent fairway grass area to practice iron play. Old 8 became the short game area featuring a 30-yard apron, an expansive sand trap, deep rough surrounding the green, and a putting surface with lots of movement. It is one of the best short game practice areas you will find anywhere.
Whether it’s a dozen swings to warm up before playing a round, working through two buckets of balls to get in a groove, or getting a lesson from the Pro to add to your game, everyone takes full advantage of the outstanding practice facilities.
As an added bonus for a select few events each year, Old 8 is brought back into play as a 175-yard par 3 over water to a green that slopes from right to left.
