My final day course is River Club and there’s a note saying they don’t have a driving range. Is anyone familiar with that course/location? Is there somewhere close by where we can warm up (and have privileges to do so)? Thanks, in advance.August 23, 2020 at 12:40 pm #48227Harry (Rule 35) RadleyParticipant
Gary that is where I also play on the final day so it looks like we are in the same boat up the river club without a paddle. Never played there before cannot give you any assistance should be interesting to play a new course just use a warm up weight or a swing trainer stickAugust 23, 2020 at 12:53 pm #48229Lee HooperParticipant
They are 45 minute drive from Myrtle Beach in Litchfield just before you get to Pawleys Island. You might get there early and go to litchfield Country Club which is very close by to hit a few. I know that they are being used the last day of the tournament (FLIGHT 33 AND 34 ), so I would call to see if you could use their Range along with THESE GUYS.August 23, 2020 at 2:11 pm #48231Denny BurchParticipant
Gary, you might want to find a range at a course not being used by the WA that day. The Litchfield range is small, and I believe part of the decision to use tee times was supported by being able to reduce the crowd at the range. One more player would be no big deal, but if a lot of River Club players see this and show up at Litchfield that would not be good for the Litchfield players. We had a hundred players there at the March Championship and they ran out of balls. As far as I know the tournament said Caledonia players could stop at True Blue to use their range, but the other courses without ranges were not given an option.August 23, 2020 at 3:11 pm #48234Bob NewmanParticipant
Tupelo Bay has a grass driving range between Surfside and Garden City on 17 business that is nice. Robert Club also has a net /mat for about 8 at a time.August 24, 2020 at 8:44 am #48247Gary GurtcheffParticipant
Thanks, all.August 24, 2020 at 9:21 pm #48274Bruce HoffmanParticipant
I have utilized Litchfield and Tupelo Bay in the past WA’s,
both are very good options, and with this years Tee Times, I don’t expect any range traffic as in years past when we had 80+ golfers all going off at the same time, but by day four, I need to just loosen up on the putting green.August 24, 2020 at 10:37 pm #48275Harry (Rule 35) RadleyParticipant
What you know is a couple of plastic pickle balls or the smaller Golf whiffle balls and use those to warm up and hit those balls which go about 15 yards max. Use 2 or 3 of those in a safe area and you are good to go. You only need about 20 swings to be warmed up.
