Venetian Golf and River Club in Sarasota: coolest driving range in Florida
The Venetian Golf and River Club, in North Venice, just outside Sarasota, Florida, has a driving range that actually makes warming up fun.
It’s a lake, for christ’s sake. Now, I’m sure there is someone out there who will point out other courses that have watery driving ranges, but it’s the first time I’ve run across one, and it’s a blast. They have floating greens with flags and when you try and hit them it’s almost like when you were a kid playing some stupid, made-up game just for the sake of playing it. I almost forgot my tee time.
The water serves another purpose besides sheer fun – you can always see where the ball lands. The course itself is a hoot, too – some of the greens are almost as fun as the water. Look for my incredibly insightful review coming soon.
