Driving range
 
Hey whatever happened to the Spanish Spgs driving range.? I haven't been by that way for a couple years until today and noticed it's no more.

Do they have another place we can go?

On 'the reservation', there are driving ranges at Palmer, Glenview, and Lopez. One to open in late Jan/early Feb at Havana off of 466A.

Off the reservation, 2 ranges within a quarter mile of each other: Lady Lake Driving range on Rolling Acres Rd just North of 466 and Tree Tops (a TOTV sponsor) just south of 466. Treetops stays open later than the others, I believe.

Tree Tops is pretty good.....better value on a large bucket....or jumbo if you can muster the stamina to hit 'em all. Posted yardages appear to be pretty accurate. It's also lighted and has a sand practice area. :bigthumbsup:

Heard about a new range near Havana as 07 related. Supposed to open the end of January, and be located south of 466A. I went looking for it or signs of construction, and could not find anything on Morse or Buena Vista south of 466A. I did not get down Buena Vista, as their were signs concerning tresspassing and felony charges. Morse south of 466A was not paved or viable. Sure would be nice to have a range on the southern end.

Thanks to everyone for there input. Havana area would be perfect since its my backyard.

As for Rolling Acres can't believe I missed that one as I drive by it almost daily when I visit TV.

My husband and I were visiting TV for 2 months last summer and spoke to someone in TV golf course main office who told us that a new driving range was proposed south of 466A. It would be a lighted facility and open at night. Don't know when that will open, however.

The cart path to the tunnel and the driving range is just East of the Colony Cottage sport pool.

Indy, Went through the tunnel, and could not find anything. Went down the cart path going down 466A and did not see anything. Like others a range sure would be nice expecially if it is open at nite. I was told the range would open the end of Jan 08. Thanks.

Golf pro at the Golf Academy says it (new one)is an aqua range so look for water.

Bama,

I rode down there the other day....as you cross over 466A from Colony Plaza tunnel, and you are facing South, there is an area just to your left that is being developed...saw them framing out a small building. I believe this will be the driving range.

Re: Driving range
 
07 Thanks. I did not look to the left. Noticed that the road ended so I went right. Nice to know something is happening. I was told somewhere that range would open Jan 28. Hope this is correct. Will be moved in completely on Feb 2nd. Hitting golf balls on Feb 3rd.
