Mudbrook Golf Center gives golfers the tools and instruction they need to shave strokes and thoroughly enjoy the game. The shop's selection of gear by top industry brands such as TaylorMade, Nike, and Titleist complements instruction from PGA professionals. Within lessons, the pros rely on time-earned golfing wisdom augmented by digital diagnostics, which help students clearly see swing imbalances such as flat backswings, over-rotation, or excessive celebrations.
At Quarry Ridge, golfers work on a full bag of golf skills, ranging from miniature course tap-ins to 300-yard wallops on the driving range to shot-making selections on the 9-hole executive course. Six out of nine holes on the executive course measure less than 300 yards, demanding accuracy over rocket-fueled golf balls on six par 4s and three par 3s. If players want to add distance to their drives or hone shorter shots, they can log some practice time on the lighted driving range, complete with both grass tees and covered mats. Nearby, a miniature-golf course invites all ages of putters to roll golf balls over the 18-hole layout while laying chase to the par of 54.
Indian Trail Golf Center acts as a peaceful practice oasis for players to perfect swings and hone their skills. Upon arrival, golfers insert tokens into the ball dispenser to receive their allotted balls, which cascade into the bucket and jostle to be the first off the tee. The driving range is home to synthetic mats and natural-grass stations. In inclement weather, 10 covered hitting stations keep players dry as they blast balls into lower orbit and try to dislodge hail from rain clouds. After buckets have been depleted and swings satisfied, players can head to the practice green and squeeze in as many tap-ins as daylight allows. Indian Trail Golf Center stays open from 9 a.m. to dusk every day of the week except Tuesday, when it opens at noon.
The soft pop of clubs connecting with golf balls drifts across The Range at Green & Harvard. Three acres of grass tees and 30 artificial-turf tees provide ample room for mobs to hone their swings after a long day chasing unnatural creations of science, and bunkers and practice greens enable focused work on the short game. The outfit replaces the entire fleet of range balls each year, so golfers rarely tee up a misshapen sphere.
Lights shine from above to allow nighttime repetitions, and at a pro shop, steely bouquets of clubs from Callaway and Top Flite stand in corners, overseen by trainers and staff members.
