Welcome to The Downs Golf Practice Facility! Since opening in March of 2003, the facility has developed into a prime year-round destination for golfers of all ages and ability levels – as well as players and groups who enjoy playing a few races between sessions on the range, short-game area and putting greens.
The fully-lighted, 22-acre facility, which attracts more than 35,000 visitors annually, features a vast array of amenities. It includes 45 all-Bermuda grass hitting stations; two full-size chipping greens; an 8,000-square foot putting green; and a covered range area. We offer quality instruction from Facility Manager and PGA Class A Professional Jon Johnson and his staff, which includes fellow Class A Professional Matt Mitchell and Assistant Manager and teaching professional Joey DiPompo.
We also offer group outings that provide for a fun, exciting, memorable and affordable day, especially when combined with Thoroughbred racing! This is a great way for corporations to entertain customers or encourage team building and department unity.
The Downs Golf Practice Facility was named one of the top new ranges in the country in 2004 by Golf Range Magazine and annually ranks among the top-100 ranges in the United States.
