The award comes to the GBCC after the successful completion of several practice facility improvement projects over the past year. The Club has improved the range by enlarging the size of their practice tees, range and targets, and adding target greens at various distances. They have also developed a short game practice area.
The practice facility at GBCC features:
- A range with numerous raised target greens, bluegrass rough area, bentgrass fairway areas and bunkering. Hitting grounds on both ends of the range help simulate different conditions and angles.
- A putting green complex and a short game chipping green area to work on different elements of the short game.
- A six-hole, par three Quarry course
“At Green Bay Country Club, we are constantly growing the game of golf by offering a practice facility that encompasses all parts of the game, for every age and playing ability level,” commented interim Director of Golf Lucas Hana. “We are pleased to receive this national recognition of our facility!”
