Aqua Golf Driving Range, perched on the shore of a 20-acre lake, hosts club swingers of all abilities in canopied hitting stalls and a short game center. A professional golf guru teaches the half-hour lesson, honing long or truncated game performance and improving Jedi mind control over dimpled white orbs. The range's resume includes an appearance in There's Something About Mary, with its scene-stealing floating island greens and Oscar-nominated baskets of balls. A regular basket contains 50–55 standard balls ($5.66 plus tax), a premium basket holds 55–60 better-quality balls and a sense of superiority ($6.60 plus tax), and the extra-large premium basket cradles 80–85 sea-turtle eggs ($8.96 plus tax).
The Aqua Golf Driving Range
After its cameo in the 1998 movie There's Something About Mary, The Aqua Golf Driving Range became famous, summoning visitors to hit golf balls into aqueous landing areas. Before the movie, however, the 20-acre lake turned state-of-the-art golf facility was a local legend for more than 50 years. Beginners can start down the road to becoming a master golfer under the expertise of onsite golf pros during lessons, which make an ideal gift. Under a long, doublewide canopy or in the sunshine, golfers can also hit golf balls onto floating greens or buoyant caddies. The range also has a pro shop and synthetic short-game center on dry land to practice chipping, putting, and taking off the golf-bag scuba tank needed for second shots at the range.
