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…
