Bobby Lopez's passion for the game of golf was fostered by the expert tutelage of world-class players such as Bob Toski, Henry Cotton, and "Wild" Bill Melhorn. As a "Class A" member of the PGA, Bobby brings years of experience to his teaching game, a distinctive approach to instruction, and the ability to leap wide sand traps in a single bound. Bobby works with each golfer's mechanics and techniques, rather than against them, during drills he designed himself to help pupils cut strokes and time from their hosted game. When not developing students' drives, short games, and club choices, Bobby hosts "The Bobby Lopez Golf Hour" on Fox Sports 1340 AM, and also takes time to support the USO.

Golf balls trace high arcs over the driving range or roll toward mini-golf holes at Hanover Sports Park, where guests hone power and finesse as they work on their game. Waterfalls cascade into tiny ponds on the edges of the mini-golf course, where twisting greens provide a venue for families and friends to haggle over who gets to hold the scorecard. Sixty-three artificial hitting mats line the subtly curved, two-tiered driving range, which includes 28 heated and covered hitting areas and seven natural-grass tees.

The chime of sharp line drives resonates from the center's seven batting cages, where hitters swat at everything from high-arching softballs to baseballs zipped at up to 80 miles per hour. Hanover Sports Park's staff helps guests manage their activities and special events by creating group and party packages for birthdays and corporate gatherings.
