The Driving Range at Southport Golf Academy
Coronavirus Restricted Usage
Our Driving Range facilities are open each day from 10am until 4pm but are subject to strict distancing and hygiene conditions to protect our customers and staff.
Please follow our instructions
We are unable to lend or hire clubs – please bring your own, and do not allow others to share. No spectators are permitted.
Our range balls are all washed by machine and will be served in baskets of 50 or 100, baskets will have been rinsed and wiped before your collection by one member of our staff who will be properly following all hygiene advice.
The rubber Tees in each bay will have been treated with cleaning solvents and replaced after each customer.
After parking please enter the holding area and queue to the left – clearly marked for Driving Range. You will be called over the bridge and into the Proshop to ensure only one customer is in there at any one time. Please note that at the same time players using the course are also queueing and being called forward. A Steward will be on duty to supervise this.
After paying (ideally by contactless credit card) you will be directed to the range where you will be met with your basket of balls and directed to a bay. Please note we are using alternate bays to further allow distancing. Balls are £3.50 for 50 or £6.00 for 100. We cannot allow you to return for further balls – so decide your limit before paying! Customers who already have prepaid cards are welcome of course! Discount Cards are available for £30 ( provides for up to 10 baskets of 50 or 6 baskets of 100) or £60 ( provides for 20 baskets of 50 or 13 baskets of 100)
After completing your practise please return to our steward who will indicate when it is safe to leave through the ProShop and back to the Car Park.
Gents toilets are available on the Range – Ladies are through the Pro Shop – again ask to be directed there to ensure distancing. Toilets are cleaned and treated regularly but provision is made for hygiene products to be there for your own use.
Playing the course
We are unable to accommodate a warm up on the range if you plan to play the course ( and have a tee time booked – sorry).
WE FULLY UNDERSTAND THAT THESE ARRANGEMENTS ARE DETAILED BUT IN ORDER TO COMPLY WITH THE GUIDANCE FROM GOVERNMENT AND THE GOVERNING BODIES OF GOLF, AS WELL AS HEALTH AND SAFETY GUIDELINES IT IS ESSENTIAL. WE ASK THAT IF YOU WISH TO COME YOU RESPECT OUR OPERATIONAL PLANS.
