Western Turnpike offers the most dynamic practice area in the Capital Region offering areas to work on all aspects of your game.
Driving Range – Our all-grass 35 stall driving range offers many different features to keep your practice sessions interesting and fun. Rather than a flat target area, our range offers several colored flags and yardage signs over gently undulating terrain for the first 150 yards, giving the golfer a good look at their target and a more realistic practice experience. Big hitters have no fear! Our range extends well beyond 300 yards, so if you can reach the end, break out the big stick and let it fly! Have you ever had the elements interfere with your practice? No need to worry about the sun in your eyes! Our range faces to the north north-east so the sun will be behind you almost any time of day. With the prevailing winds from your left, the range is guarded by many trees to minimize the wind’s effect on the ball. It is a rare day that you will find the wind from the northeast to knock down your shots.
Putting and Chipping Greens – The best way to keep your score down is with a good short game. To help you, we offer three full size putting and chipping greens. Two of our greens, with some very challenging hidden breaks, may be used to practice both putting and chipping. The third green is in our short game area.
Short Game Area – This area offers even more room to work on your short game where you can hit shots of up to 30 yards to a our third practice green. This green also has multiple holes to putt to as well as two green side bunkers to practice getting your ball near the hole on the first try!
Golf Shop – The golf shop should be your first stop when checking in for a tee time, driving range, or overall information about the facility. The shop is also fully stocked with merchandise for your general playing needs, and will offer special pricing and discounts to outings for prizes and/or gift certificates purchased from the Golf Shop. Ask the golf shop staff for more details.
