Practice Facility

Practice makes Perfect

Garl Logo

Our trend-setting, over 20 acre,  Ron Garl designed "Golf Improvement Center", has quickly become recognized as the tops in all of Southwest Florida. This first-class facility features a double-sided range, 4 short-game areas, fantastic putting green, and two practice holes, a par 3 and par 4. Members say that if you can tame the two practice holes, there's a good chance you will score well on the course. The practice putting green is large and always in pristine condition. Unlike some area courses, the speed and condition on the practice green, mirrors the greens you will find on the course. Beware, these greens can run as fast as those on the Pro Tour. The improvement center has attracted many aspiring young tour players to the club.
