Saturday, March 23 – Our final stop on our Treasures of Houston tour was the largest golf driving range we've ever seen!

This 3-story driving range had it all. Indoor & outdoor bars, over 200 TV sets, pool tables, shuffle board, lounge areas, private party areas and of course, 3 floors of gold tees.

Participants pay by the hour and can hit as many balls as you like in that time. The cost is $20 during the week and $40 weekends and high volume times. There are electronic scoring machines and different target areas to hit your balls toward. Check out the HUGE screen used to keep the balls in the playing area.


Carrie's gang of friends were meeting here for the afternoon and chipping in to pay for the party area.

Carrie tried it twice. She needs some work on her swing as it looks more like she is hitting a softball than a golf ball.

We hung out with them for a couple hours and then headed back to the Elks Lodge.

The Elks Lodge was having a dance tonight, and we decided to attend to say “good-bye” to the friends we've made here at the Lodge. Since we stay here frequently, we've managed to become friends with many of the members and others that stay in the campground. We had a great time and got to get a little 2-steppin' in before leaving Texas.

Guess who's birthday is on Wednesday, March 27th…

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y'all back real soon. Have a great day!


  1. I've never seen a driving range like that. Have a great birthday, Paul!

  2. Have a happy birthday Paul and safe travels.

  3. That driving range looks like a really fun place...even if I don't play golf! Seems like "let the good times role" wherever Carrie is!

    Happy Birthday, Paul...wishing you a fun birthday and many blessings in the year ahead!

  4. Happy Birthday, Paul!

    I've never seen a 3-story driving range.

    Safe travels as you start your trek north.

  5. Happy Birthday Mr. Paul. Have a great fun day. I must admit - I've never been to even a small driving range but that place is incredible. I had to laugh when you said Carrie looked like a softball player rather than a golfer. I was trying to imagine how terrible I'd look. lol

  6. That is one very impressive driving range for sure.
    Happy Birthday and safe travels!

  7. What a cool golf place! We'll have to check that out when we come to Houston in May...

  8. Forgot to say, Happy Birthday, Paul!

  9. Happy birthday Paul! Drive safe.

  10. Happy Birthday Paul. That driving range fence is pretty tall but I still might need it a few more stories up!!

  11. Wow, I would actually practice, if I could go there:)

  12. Happy Birthday, Paul! Safe journey.

  13. There for a moment I thought JR Ewing came back to life! Opps, it's Paul.

  14. Happy belated birthday Paul.

  15. Good info!! Your blog feature much of the same content that I have come to expect here.

    Arena Park Golf, located in Cape Girardeau Missouri, provides full golf course to a driving range and from batting cages to putt-putt.
