Driving Range Policy


  • Damage caused by golf balls is the responsibility of the golfer. Please do not hit range balls over the net, and be sure to follow up with the appropriate party when your ball strikes a home or vehicle.
  • To become a better golfer, one must spend time on the range. However, there is a right way and a wrong way to approach the practice facilities at Fairwood. A-frame signs are located at the Driving Range and state: “Members/Guests with tee times have Driving Range priority 30- minutes before their tee times. Members/Guests without tee times may be asked to stand aside, allowing those members with tee times access.”  Tee sheets are posted each day at the Driving Range so that Members can see if someone has a tee-time within 30-minutes or if they are practicing. If you are practicing and do not have a tee time within 30-minutes of your arrival, then please BE AWARE.  By practicing awarness, you can look around and if a Member comes up to hit balls, simply say, “If you have a tee time, I’m happy to let you hit”. If a Member asks if you have a tee time, please use proper etiquette, be polite, and move aside.​​
  • Driving Range Access Rules correlate with the Golf Course Access Rules. Therefore, we ask that Members be considerate of both Golf Course and Driving Range Access Rules to make it fair, fun play for everyone.

  • STUDENT MEMBERS AND JUNIORS WHO ARE JUST PRACTICING ON THE RANGE must utilize “Just Practicing Signs”.  These signs are located at the range.  Simply stick one in the ground behind you, or if you are practicing on the mats, lay the sign down behind you.  Doing so will help reduce confusion.  If a student or junior member is practicing, and has a sign behind them, other members who have a tee time can politely ask you step aside so they can warm-up before their tee-time. During busy times, other Members may utilize the “Just Practicing Signs” as a courtesy, but it is not required.
