Driving ranges to work on your swing in Vancouver

One of the most important parts of any golf game is the first shot. Get it right and you’ve set yourself up for a simple short game on the greens. At these Vancouver area driving ranges, you can get your game tightened up so your handicap keeps dropping.

Musqueam Golf Course

1
3904 51st Ave W, Vancouver, BC V6N 3W1

You can get started as early as 8 am and keep swinging until 10 at night, with the last bucket of balls dispensed at 9:30. Once you’ve settled on a time, get set to practice in one of the best driving ranges in Vancouver. There are two tiers holding 80 stalls and you’ll be aiming at various length markers on artificial turf. And, just as in a real game, there are greens, bunkers and water hazards in your path.

Richmond Driving Range

4880 No. 6 Rd, Richmond, BC V6V 1P7

If you’ve decided that improving your golf game is your New Year’s resolution, fantastic. You can get started right away because they have heated and covered stalls. But if you’re a regular golfer who wants to keep chipping away at your game, the driving range has your back year round. It can fit up to 50 golfers at a time and there are discounts for groups of more than 10 people, so hit the range with as many friends as you’d like.

University Golf Club

4701 University Blvd, Vancouver, BC V6T 1X5

You can hit the range any time of year, with 20 covered stalls for when the weather’s a little nippy, and 30 mats for summer driving. As long as you don’t show up on a Monday or Tuesday when they’re closed for maintenance, you’re free to buy as many tokens as you want. One token nets you a bucket of 60 balls for just a handful of change, while the 100-token card is the best value.

Seymour Creek Golf Centre

315 Seymour Blvd, North Vancouver, BC V7J 2J4

On a clear day, you can see gorgeous landscapes for miles and miles, especially if you’re practicing on the second tier. Stalls are covered so you can still drive if the rain hits but with driving range hours from 8 am to 10 pm (9 pm on Sundays), you may just be able to elude the weather. Prices are pretty reasonable for balls and you can always catch an incredible sale, but the best deal comes with club rentals.

Burnaby Mountain Golf Course & Driving Range

5
7600 Halifax St, Burnaby, BC V5A 4M8

Things are pretty high-tech at this driving range — when you line up your shot, you may feel like you’re getting set for kick-off at a pro soccer game instead. The sheltered stalls are heated and the range is well lit, with stately trees on both sides of you. A pro shop is on site if you want to invest in your own equipment, but if not, rentals are fairly reasonably priced.

Savage Creek Golf Course & Driving Range

6
7388 No. 6 Rd, Richmond, BC V6W 1E1

It’s difficult for one driving range to appeal to a large number of personalities and golfing types, but Savage Creek scores major points for its inclusivity. It’s the kind of place where a semi-pro golfer and first-timer could be in adjacent stalls, as there’s more than enough room to house everyone. There are a whopping three tiers and 60 bays to this driving range and you can whack balls out of the place any day of the week.

Whether it be your difficult in-laws who are visiting, your party animal roommate from university or your workout-obsessed brother, it’s good to have a roster of fun things to do around the city when you have visitors from out of town. These Vancouver attractions will impress even your most challenging guests. [Photo © Yellow Pages / Pages Jaunes]
