To complement the two 18 hole courses we have a 9 hole Par 3 short course. All members can play this course for free (5 or 7-day playing rights will apply) or 3 credits for Flexi members.
There is also a short game practice green set at 60 yards. There is also a practice putting green located by the Par 3 course and another located by the Clubhouse.
There is also a practice bunker by the driving range and the outside bays include a Huxley Golf mat which gives the feel of natural grass.
The Driving Range has recently undergone a major refurbishment with significant investment and features the first-ever TrackMan in England! TrackMan technology allows players to work on areas they need to, showcasing crucial data from the ball’s measurements – making it a powerful practice tool. Whether you’re playing alone or with friends, the new TrackMan technology can improve your skills and have fun!
You do not need to book to play on the Driving Range, just turn up with your own clubs and buy a basket of balls or a range card which can give you up to 25% extra credit as a member.
