I was assigned a course with no driving range on day 1. Is it possible we are expected to play a tournament round without the ability to warm up. How can the WorldAm schedule a course with no driving range?August 23, 2021 at 10:56 am #49952benny shepardParticipant

I usually go to a nearby course to warm up. Caledonia, one of the best courses, does not have a range so I go to True Blue to warm upAugust 23, 2021 at 11:51 am #49956Scott PorterParticipant
It will not be as bad as you think. Over the years I have been assigned courses with out driving ranges several times. Keep in mind, everyone is in the same boat. If you have a warm up aid like an Orange whip or a product like it that can help stretch you out before the round. You can take a hitting mate and a few of the foam balls to hit to warm up. Also depending on your tee time you can stop at one of the driving ranges going to the course. Besides, I would trade with you in a flash if I could to get to play the courses that do not have a driving range because they are that nice.
Best of luckAugust 23, 2021 at 12:32 pm #49960Jim KavanaghParticipant
Sounds like you got Caledonia. You drive past True Blue on the way.August 23, 2021 at 1:02 pm #49966Glenn FosterParticipant
River Club is without one as well. Some of these courses, with the C-19 stuff, might not let you on the range if not a contestant? Might want to be sure before you show up at one? Just a thought.August 23, 2021 at 1:22 pm #49969Walter WhiteParticipant
Litchfeild CC has a range. It is close to the River course.You might check, but have warmed up there before.
There should be a flight playing there also.August 23, 2021 at 1:35 pm #49971Mike CheesemanParticipant
Who’s going to know on the other ranges if you are playing there or not.August 23, 2021 at 3:43 pm #49979Mark HancockParticipant
I have warmed up at nearby WA courses over the years and no one has ever said a thing to me. As far as they know, I just a WA player scheduled to play on that course that day.
I would take four rounds at Caledonia for the WA every year.August 23, 2021 at 3:57 pm #49981Walter WhiteParticipant
Caledonia also has those little chipping areas with greens. They had a spot to hit 40 – 50 yards. just left of the 9th hole.August 23, 2021 at 9:51 pm #49995William ZeoliParticipant
3500 golfers 50 courses I million questions….and the issue is no driving range on one course? You’re kidding, right?August 23, 2021 at 11:36 pm #49999Rick KimbrellParticipant
Warm up? Hit balls before the round? Who does that? Stumble onto the first tee, put the peg in the ground, ball on the peg. Ready, Fire, Aim. Go find it.August 25, 2021 at 11:59 am #50068Glenn FosterParticipant
Fellas, I’ve done the same thing in the past, to warm up at another course…just need to be aware. This ain’t 3 years ago. We might not be able to access a range/course without a name on the list before a round, since tee times will allow better control of ranges or bag drop areas? I’m not saying it’s true, just saying we need to be aware and respectful of the C-19 protocols of the tournament and at each course?
Not everybody likes to even hit balls anyway, I know. Just trying to be conscious and respectful that all backs aren’t created equal! 🙂 🙂August 25, 2021 at 12:23 pm #50069ALAN CaswellParticipant
I agree with with Ricks summation!!!
