The driving range is arguably the most popular and busiest venue in the world of golf. Anyone who has the most remote interest in golf has been to a driving range.
However, venues are striving to improve their practice facilities in order to attract new customers and this has produced some of Europe's finest driving ranges on English shores.
The best ones are dotted all over the country and a lot of them feature Toptracer screens and TrackMan technology, as well as superb services from bars, cafés and other attractions.
The driving range can be accompanied by shops and other features to enhance your practice experience. This is why spending your evening with a golf club in your hand is so popular.
