Thorpe Wood Driving Range and Practice Area

The Thorpe Wood Driving Range is the perfect starting point for a beginner to learn the fundamentals of the game or for a more experienced player to hone their skills. Our covered, floodlit 16-bay range has your practice covered, day and night, whatever the weather. The range is a fantastic way to get into golf, anyone can come along and give it a go.


Since the pandemic we have altered the way we operate the Driving Range, we now have a dedicated member of staff on hand to welcome you to the range and answer any questions you may have.


The addition of high quality white Srixon 2-piece balls and realistic, contoured outfield means practice time is enjoyable as well as useful.


We also have an area designated for short game practice so you can practice the all-important score saving shots. In addition there is a large putting green by the 1st tee and another chipping green by the 10th tee.
