Brisbane isn’t short of activities to do or places to visit when you’re looking for somewhere to unwind. Sure, you could easily spend a fair few hours wondering around the myriad menswear shops and sneaker stores in an effort to update your wardrobe.
Alternatively, you could, of course, pull up a seat at any number of Brisbane’s coolest bars or even pay a visit to the city’s numerous breweries where you can not only sample some of the finest beers around but learn a thing or two about how they’re made too.
But to really take advantage of Brisbane’s (usually) incredible weather, you’ll want to remain outside. And what better way to spend that time outside than by playing some golf. If you’re a seasoned pro or just starting out but aim to reach the top of the ranks, then you’ll want to pay the green fees at any of Brisbane’s awesome golf courses. But if you simply want to practice your swing, or you just fancy trying out something different with some mates, driving ranges are hard to beat.
In our opinion, there are fewer activities better suited to relieving stress, while incurring a fun experience at the same time and fortunately, there are plenty of golf driving ranges in Brisbane to choose from, so finding one close to home should be a doddle. You’ll want to look into how many bays each driving range so that you can be sure you’ll be able to secure a spot, and also if they offer night-time club swinging thanks to the inclusion of floodlit bays.
What you can be guaranteed of with any of these driving ranges in Brisbane is an improvement to your swing. You’ll be hitting 300 yarders in no time.
