Unlike most driving ranges we can offer our customers the option of hitting off the grass if they prefer, we regularly rotate our grass tees to keep them in good order and have even added an outdoor ball machine to this area!


Further down from the grass hitting area is our popular short game area - with two greens, two bunkers (one deep, one shallow) and a variety of positions to play from this is the ideal environment to hone your short game and save shots!


A tube of balls for the short game costs just £3 and allows you to spend as long as you like practising there.
