Our full-size driving range provides the perfect opportunity to enhance any individual’s golf game. Students, staff, alumni, and the general public have access to a full array of practice features. Practice balls can be hit from grassed tee areas to a target area that contains numerous bunkered greens. A modern short game practice area is also available, which includes a putting green and a large pitching/bunker green.

The driving range also provides the UGA Men’s and Women’s Golf Teams with one of the top collegiate practice facilities in the country. To date, the men’s team has won two national championships and a league leading twenty-nine SEC championships, while the women’s team has one national championship and eleven SEC championships to its credit.
