The driving range is arguably the most popular and easily accessible venue for golfers of any level and experience. Anyone who has the most remote interest in golf has been to a driving range.
Following golf's huge post-Covid boom, driving ranges have dramatically increased in popularity, and with that, the quality of services and facilities has dramatically risen, too.
The best driving ranges are dotted all over the country, and a lot of them feature Toptracer screens and TrackMan technology, as well as superb coaching and club-fitting services.
Many of the best driving ranges in England are also now accompanied by shops and other attractions, making them ideal venues to entertain the whole family.
