When anyone talks about golf, many would think about it as a wealthy old man sport. However, in recent months, we have realised that many of our peers have taken up the sport and we did the same. What resulted is we had a realisation on how golf is a precise sport and definitely a fun one especially at the driving range. It’s a different monster on the course!

So if you’re thinking of getting into the sport, grab a friend who knows golf and belanja them to these driving ranges so that they can teach you the very basics! Or if you’re a golfer, whose looking for a change of environment from your normal driving range, then this might be for you as well!

This driving range/golf course is one of the best in Malaysia. If you’re wondering why there are two names, Tournament Players Club (TPC) is a chain of public and private golf courses operated by the PGA Tour. Most of the TPC courses are used to host PGA Tour events and the TPC for KL is KLGCC.

  • The driving range here is three-storeys
  • Has a cashless system and each bay dispenses balls automatically.

You can see how it works below:

According to their website, the rates are as follow:

3. Impact Golf

Impact Golf is a special driving range as what spans out in front of the driving bays is not land, but actually, a lake! This is known as an “Aquatic Driving Range” and they use a special kind of golf ball here to make sure that they float on the lake. Here, you can practice your golf swings with a view and the price is not bad as well.

Charges: 50 balls cost RM7.50 while 100 balls cost RM14 for non-members, 50 balls cost RM6.50 while 100 balls cost RM12 for members.

Operation time: Weekdays from 7.30am to 10.30pm, weekends from 7am to 10pm.

“Our undercover, double story, 45 bay aquatic driving range is only ten minutes away from the main city centre but once you reach here, you will forget all of the hustle & bustle of the city life.”

5. Bandar Utama Golf Driving Range

Unfortunately, we found out that the Bandar Utama Golf Driving Range has been closed for renovations and will be functioning again by the second quarter of 2022. However, when we were talking to the person in charge we found something that was quite interesting and that is footgolf!

Just as how it sounds like, it is a fusion between football and golf where your legs act as a club. The goal is to kick your ball into the hole in as few kicks as possible. You can choose to play either 9 or 18 holes.

If you prefer to have a more peaceful time then you can opt for a little 4.8KM walk or jog on the course’s buggy track.
