In addition to our championship golf course, O’Bannon Creek offers its members and guests, a state-of-the-art practice facility. Golfers of all abilities can work on both their long and short game on one of the finest practice facilities in the area. Over an acre of bent grass teeing area is available for full shot practice.

O’Bannon Creek uses Titleist Practice Balls exclusively on the driving range. For bunker practice, a sand bunker offers the player a chance to practice both fairway and greenside bunker shots. The 20,000 square foot putting green and surrounding chipping and pitching areas afford the player the opportunity to practice all the short game shots imaginable. An additional green is available for putting only. The practice facility offers an exceptional experience for golf instruction and custom club fitting.
