Seekonk Driving Range emerges out of verdant farmland and woods to entertain fun seekers with expansive grounds that are home for myriad group sport outings. The recently revamped 18-hole mini-golf course challenges friends and foes as they battle low pars along curving pathways—attempting bank shots amid waterfalls, fountains, and heckling alligators. Long-distance golfers practice from the facility’s 52 hitting stations, where they send golf balls soaring through 300 yards of driving range using provided drivers and irons. Home-run hitters test their mettle in nine variable-speed batting cages, which serve up 15 softballs or baseballs per token. Cool off after an action-packed outing by digging into ice cream at Seekonk’s picnic tables or by asking a snowman for a back massage.
Seekonk Driving Range
In 1967, William J. Cuddigan began tilling and transforming his farmland using natural grasses and wooded barriers, slowly building what has since grown into a family fun center replete with a miniature golf course, batting cages, and a 52-stall driving range. The Cuddigan family still tends to the landscape, honoring William's original design while updating the facility with modern amenities. Covered and heated hitting stalls line the driving range, enabling players to practice in a natural setting throughout the year. The 18-hole miniature golf course has also seen many renovations but, like a recurring dream, many of its original features—windmill, lighthouse, and sinister clown nose hole—have been faithfully preserved.
