Practice Facilities

 

Helsby Golf Club is fortunate to have some of the best practice facilities in the area, which include:

 

3 x covered hitting bays with teaching mats

5 x outdoor hitting bays

3 x outdoor hitting bays for the pitching area w/specialist short game mats

Practice green with bunker

Large putting green

6 hole Academy par 3 course

Rubber tees are fixed into all of the mats on the covered bays and the outdoor hitting area; they are designed to be used in conjunction with regular tee pegs. Flag targets have been located at 125, 150, 175 yards from the covered hitting area. The short game area has tees located at 50, 70, 90 yards from the centre of the practice green. The fence at the railway line & the 10th green are 290 yards & 280 yards respectively from the covered hitting area.

 

We would ask that all users direct there full shots towards the coloured flags (where possible) and that users avoid hitting balls directly into the pond. The practice facility is used at your own risk and due consideration must be given to other users and the green staff. Please be aware of anyone using the 6 hole academy course that loops around the practice area. There will be an occasional (rare) need to close the practice ground when it is needed for use an overflow car park or when a large group (e.g. school) are using the facilities. The alternative practice area to the left of the 15th is still available for short game practice, golfers are asked not to use this area whilst competitions are taking place.
