Driving Range @ the J

We are happy to open up the J Driving Range at the Merfish Teen Center. At the J’s driving range, we will be utilizing hitting mats and foam golf balls that will allow our members to come out and work on their swing. The hitting mats can be used on both the grass and hard surfaces. The foam golf balls allow you to see the flight of your shot while staying safely on the grounds of Merfish.

Schedule / Fee

The driving range will be open on Sunday mornings with 3 time slots available. Each time slot will have four hitting mats available for reservations. Your reservation includes one bucket of foam golf balls when you check in at the back gate next to the parking lot. Each bucket will have 40-42 golf balls in it.

All members must provide their own clubs.

An additional bucket of balls is $5 or you may purchase a punch card for $30 for 6 buckets to be used at your convenience.
