Driving and Practice Range FAQs
When do practice ranges open for the season?
Golf courses and driving ranges usually open in late March or early April when the snow melts, then close for the season in November or December.
What should I know about golf range etiquette?
According to Golf.com, you should follow 5 basic etiquette ‘rules’ at the range:
- Don’t ‘spread’ stuff outside your station
- Get your balls and then find your tee box
- Don’t waste time
- Don’t be overly loud
- Have a chat, but don’t be too chatty
Can I use Okanagan Lake as my driving range?
Since golf balls are made of plastic, they’ll eventually break down into microplastics. We highly recommend practicing at a driving range in Kelowna - or enjoying a driving range alternative.
What are some practice range alternatives in Kelowna, BC?
- Indoor and outdoor golf simulators like Simplex Sportszone in Kelowna, BC
- Get a set of Almost Golf Balls and practice in your backyard or at a sports field
- Many courses have large golf nets where you can warm up before a round - or you can put a small golf net in your backyard
- Find a putting and chipping area and practice your short game instead
- Play mini golf
