Pure Practice Paradise
I went here to practice with my new irons. I was only going to hit balls, but asked about the course out of curiosity. Stan showed me the scorecard and explained how it's designed to use every iron in your bag. So I hit a small bucket and went to the first tee! He was right, the course has a great layout that demands different shots. On #3, I hit a 60 yard bump and run 7 iron instead of trying to control a lob wedge downwind. This is a great beginners course yet even simple shots like that can be challenging to more advanced players. The tees and fairways were in great shape! The bent grass greens had a tough go with our high summer heat, but I was told they will rebound over the winter with new seed. After the round, I practiced in the pitching area. It has little mini greens with holes and bunkers! HVGC is more than a driving range, it's a place to become a better golfer. I will definitely be back!
