All seven local driving ranges have been consistently among our top golf driving ranges and golf practice facilities in the Chicagoland area. In addition to premium amenities, these local facilities are a great place to practice and learn the game with some of the top PGA professionals in the area.

“We are proud to offer one of the premier driving ranges and practice facilities in the Chicagoland area,” said Brian Dutler, General Manager at Harborside International Golf Center. “This award recognizes our commitment to growing the game of golf and providing our customers the opportunity to enjoy the game and achieve their game improvement goals.”

Aside from being the premier “warm-up” site for two award winning courses (Port & Starboard), the Harborside practice facility offers course-like conditions allowing you to groom your game year-round. The 57-acre practice facility at Harborside provides the following: expansive bent grass tees identical to the teeing areas and fairways on the two courses, bent grass fairways to accurately gauge distance on tee shots, four target greens to groove precise iron approaches, separate areas for chipping, pitching and sand play, and a large putting clock for putting drills.

“We strive to provide a best in class practice experience for golfers of all skill levels with one of the more comprehensive short game practice areas in the country,” said Doug Friess, General Manager of the Driving Range and Golf Academy at Bolingbrook Golf Club. “We are committed to helping golfers achieve their goals while enjoying the game of golf and are honored to be recognized among the top practice facilities in the country with this award.”

The Driving Range and Golf Academy at Bolingbrook Golf Club features 70 bent grass hitting stations, 12 target greens, a 10-acre short game area including 2 par 3 holes, lights for nighttime use and professional instruction from several experienced instructors. With its own clubhouse and entrance, the practice center is designed to accommodate players of every level.
