Rules of the Range

  • Players may only play from the designated bays using purchased range balls.
  • Play is only permitted from the bays westwards
  • Players should stand well apart from any neighbouring players when hitting
  • Only one player permitted per bay and not more than two other persons may congregate around that player
  • Players must not enter the range for any reason.
  • The baskets should be returned to the dispenser shed when empty
  • To maximise the use of the grass on the driving range, players should place their next ball on the grassy back edge of the previous divot hole removing just a small portion of grass in each swing. This will decrease the area affected and increase the rate at which the hitting area will recover.  Players should scatter the divot mix provided over the damaged area once finished.
  • When balls are being collected, no play is allowed
  • Juniors, using their free ball allocation, may only occupy up to three bays at any one time
  • Failure to adhere to these conditions may result in a loss of privileges.
