How to Practice Golf at the Golf Range

by William McCoy

Visiting a driving range can help you improve your golf game without the expense of playing a full round of golf. At a driving range, it’s possible to hit several dozen or even more than 100 balls in a relatively short period of time without any pressure. Depending on where you live, you might be able to visit an outdoor driving range all year, or you can take advantage of an indoor range during the winter.

  • Aim for specific yard markers and try to place shots as close to the markers as possible. Having a very specific target will help you focus.

  • To simulate the routine of playing a hole of golf, tee off with a driver, hit a long iron and follow it up with a short iron or wedge.
