The 22-acre practice facility at Tampa Bay Downs sharpens wood play as well as putting and short-game techniques. The spacious 2-acre short-game area helps three-putters to drop a stroke on the 8,000-square-foot putting green, and two full-size chipping greens boast realistic obstacles including three sand traps and a caddy with vertigo. Clubs perform at full-pendulum capacity on one of 45 bermuda-grass tees, which overlook 270 yards of open range. Unequipped golfers can rent practice clubs ($1) or improve their driving yardage by paying a more advanced golfer to wallop their buckets of balls.
Bucket prices range from $5.50 for a small bucket of 40 balls to $11.50 for a large bucket of 120 balls. E-cards may be used over multiple visits or shared by multiple players in a marathon game of Hit the Ball Retriever.
