Larlev, Tejas Golf is awesome!, $12 to hit all the balls you want. I try and go when I come home from school a weekend. I love it!

Orange County National in the Orlando area has the best practice area ive ever seen, its a complete circle range id say 600 yards across, with putting greens, Chipping areas (80+yards) and sand shot practice areas all around the range. Feels something like disneyworld (which is actually like 20 miles away)

Not hitting Pinacles here.....Cally Hx Hot mostly

I'm trying this one next....not sure on rates though

I've been there many times aswell. I wanna say it's $10 for large bucket and $12 for a Jumbo bucket. I like Hard Drive too but you can't beat Tejas. I like that Hard Drive has a Golf Store though.

Forest Creek....I like the fact that you don't play next to other fairways

Really? I used to work there 2 years ago as apart of the Cart Staff. The course is really fun to play, but can be very challenging if you can't control the ball. I also like the fact that you don't play next to other fairways.

The PGA village in Port St. Lucie is more expensive, but also offers an all day pass. All the balls are Titleists. The grass is well kept. Multple long and short game practice areas. And there are practice bunkers with all different types of sand.

My range is terrible as well, all of the ranges in the San Francisco Bay Area (the Peninsula to be specific) - are all mats with rubber tees. I can't practice too much on these ranges, but at least I do have access to Stanford's practice holes at the 1st and 18th holes.

I try not to hit irons off the mats, so I would LOVE to be able to find a range that has grass and only grass. Any suggestions from fellow neighbors in the bay area?

    • This will happen to me when I have the optimal club release. My distance hog is that I don't release the club well into the ball, and I kind of just pull it through. It works, but when I relax and get a good swing with a great controlled release through my hands I can feel the difference and it does go MUCH farther. 
    • A couple of videos and pictures from Turnberry yesterday - didn't play brilliantly, but managed +12 in serious wind, particularly on the front nine. Putting was hard with the new greens and I three putted twice on the front nine for the first time in ages. I also found it very hard in the wind and kept trying to fight it, overthinking things rather than sticking to what I was comfortable with. As a result, I only really found my game with a few holes to play. Highlights were a birdie on the par 5 eighth, an awesome drive on the 10th, which I got on camera, and making the Tom Watson 2009 up and down, having gone over the back as well from near the plaque . The course itself was incredible - the greens haven't yet fully settled in and so there are different speeds all over the place, but it's such a good test. If you don't find the fairway, you can't score.   Very short swings due to crazy amount of wind! Fourth green - with the wind, you have to start the ball off the left of it, pretty much on the ocean...: Second shot into the 7th green. Didn't make the putt (story of the day!): View from the new championship tee for the 9th: Panoramic view from the 10th green. Arguably the most scenic par five anywhere: My Tom Watson 2009 moment captured (sort of - plaque, tee shot and where my 6 iron over the back finished up): Not worth the money, I don't think - hard for it to ever be the case at the price, but I loved every minute of it. It's a great course and deserves to have the Open back soon. Western Gailes today and hopefully my swing is on better form!

    • Count me in. Charlotte is only about an hour away for me, which is no problem.
    • I hit whatever the current TM model was in the spring but really like the AP1's. But I'll do a proper unbiased fitting and see what the results are as in both instances for iron fittings, it's been done by Titleist reps.
