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 a whole game practice area.
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.
