For the twentieth time since 1998, the Golf Range Association of America (GRAA) and Golf Range Magazine have named Skokie Sports Park one of the top golf practice centers and learning facilities in America, ranking Sports Park a top 50 stand alone range. All winners are listed in the December 2018 issue of Golf Range Magazine as well as on GolfRange.org.
The Sports Park golf range features a two-story, 40 station driving range with a brand new automatic tee-up system. Instead of buying a bucket of balls, golfers insert a debit card, the ball is automatically set, and they swing away. The range features a “true grass-like” hitting system, lights for evening practice and eleven heated stalls for winter practice. Target greens provide a landing area for precise accuracy and distance control.
Sports Park also features golf lessons, two miniature “adventure” golf courses – including the 18-hole Traveler’s Quest course and the 9-hole children’s Kid’s Quest course – as well as batting cages, a pro shop, and meeting and party room rentals.
The GRAA, based in New Canaan, Conn., was formed in 1991. It publishes the industry's leading driving range trade publication, Golf Range Magazine, six times per year.
