Practice & Learning Center

The Practice Facility is conveniently located on Freeman’s Way, less than ¼ mile from The Captains Golf Course, featuring 40 grass tee stations on rolling terrain which gives you a truly realistic golf course experience.

Plan ahead, as golf carts are not allowed to be driven to the Practice Facility, tokens are available from a dispenser at the range (exact change necessary) or in the Pro Shop. See our Rates page for bulk rate deals for the Practice Range.

Directions – From the golf course parking lot, take a right out of the driveway. Go about 100 yards and take your first left into Commerce Park. The Practice Range is the third property on the right.

Round out your short game session with chipping and putting at our two practice greens located at The Captains Golf Course.
