Standard basket at 200'. Wait, stop right there, that's all the farther I can throw. (Or is that further?)

Do we know of any driving ranges where there was a financial model involved such as this new plan? There have been lots of "driving ranges" around the country so this wouldn't be the first, maybe 30th. But I'm not aware of one where there was an attempt to make it a business.

I don't know of one run separately as a commercial enterprise, not counting those as part of a P2P course system[which don't usually charge separately for the driving range].

Default Driving range

Benbrook Texas is opening a discgolf driving range tonight at 9:00. It is $5.00 for 30 miutes or $8.00 for 1 hour. The driving range is part of the golf ball driving range and the par 3 golf course on Winscott. They said there will be about 2400 disc's available to throw.

Was this driving range a one time thing or is it a full time business? Going to be in the area next weekend and would love to hit it up if it is open.

We have a range here on site next to our pro shop and course in Cibolo TX. The range is marked up to 300ft and has room to expand with some current unmarked distance. In our experience it has helped out quite a bit. One, it is really nice to be able to practice but we also let our customers test out our discs on the range and see if they like them with no obligation to purchase. Being next to the pro shop with AC and refreshments, and the course on site as well, it definitely has benefits over just going to a football field or area not originally planned for disc golf.

I say just find the closest open field where you're not in danger of killing someone. If it's really important to get distances right, get some kind of distance measuring tool (wheel, even 50 feet of string) and some cones. You'll be at least as, if not more, accurate than the majority of signs on disc golf courses. And if none of the spaces near where you live are big enough, just work toward standstill 200' putter shots or that kind of thing.
