The range is available from 6:30 AM until 9:00 PM. At night, the range is lit from underneath, allowing you to accurately follow the flight of your ball from impact to landing, ensuring you obtain the maximum usage from your practice session.
*After 3pm, 7 days per week the driving range use will strictly be from the Artificial Mat.
