Our under cover driving bays overlook floodlit fairways of Santa Anna couch grass. The fairway is 350 metres long, 150 metres wide, with 10 target greens ranged from 50 to 250 metres away.
That's a fair test!
You'll have your own bay with a driving mat, two seats, club rack, drink holder and a shelf for your bits and pieces. The bay dividers also protect you from miss-hit balls. Just settle in and get comfortable. The best ball dispensers are close by, so they're easy for you to get your hands on too.
Short Game Area
Our short game greens feature one of the largest putting areas in Australia. Sensibly it is flanked with bunkers of different heights where you can play long or short shots to the green. It's also floodlit, so you can practice well into the night. Our coaching staff can work with you here on your approach shots and putting.
Now here's a place where you can kick back and relax. Our lounge overlooks the short game greens. Have a snack, a cold one, cappuccino or perhaps a glass or two of decent wine. A great place to have a chat with friends or make new ones. Watch sports on the big TVs. It's a friendly golfing atmosphere for everyone to enjoy.
