Louisville’s Pro-Grass and Anti-Mat Practice and Learning Center

If there’s one thing all golfers agree on it’s that artificial turf mats are not good. We agree and that’s why we always offer a natural grass range. Whether you’re hitting a few balls before you go off the first tee or banging balls for hours – it’s important to practice like you play and that means hitting off of natural grass. Shawnee Golf Course’s practice and learning center includes a grass range, short game area, two putting greens and 3 Hole Youth Golf Course.

Driving Range and Practice Area Details

Practice balls may be purchased in two sizes, Small (45 balls/$5.00) and Large (70 balls/$7.00). Players who wish to use the Practice Range and Short Game Area must purchase their practice balls beforehand in the Golf Shop.

The Practice Range has an area for the general public, and a separate teeing area reserved for use by authorized groups and for individual and group lessons given by the Shawnee Golf Course Professional Staff and The First Tee of Louisville. When utilizing the Practice Range, please hit from the designated stations in the appropriate area.

The Short Game Area is located on the right side of the Practice Range, and has a large green and a bunker. Players may hit chips, pitches up to 10 yards, and greenside sand shots in this area only. Players using the Short Game Area do so at their own risk. Please be aware of other golfers who may be practicing at the same time. (NOTE: Please care for the course – any ball marks must be fixed by the user)

Two Practice Greens are available for putting. The largest green is in conjunction with the Short Game Area, and a smaller green is located by the #1 Tee of the Course. The green by the #1 Tee is for PUTTING ONLY. Please use the Short Game Area to practice chipping and pitching.
