Practice Facilities

Golf is a game of recovery, options and strategy, not just strength. The Ron Garl team has designed unique and original “mega-practice complexes” that focus on improving strategy, ball striking and developing a player’s short game muscle memory.

Practice Diamond
The Practice Diamond is a facility to hone your approach and chip shots for 50 yards and closer.
Ron Garl Scoring “V”
The Ron Garl Scoring “V” emphasizes short game strategy. Here the player can practice wedge shots from 50 to 100 yards in 10 yard increments, thus developing feel and muscle memory for various lengths of wedge shots.
Compass Rose
The Compass Rose resembles a sailor’s compass with a green set in the middle and hitting stations surrounding the green in a 360 degree perimeter. It is designed for practicing chip shots of 50 yards orless. As the player works his way around the green he practices a variety of shots.
Bermuda Triangle
The Bermuda Triangle is a practice area where the player hits the ball to three greens set in a triangular pattern. Each green is surrounded by hazards, such as a bunker or mound. The players are trained to think about strategy and ball placement, while developing their muscle memory.
