The renovated range at Belmont features the addition of the Belmont Golf Academy, over 18 acres of driving area, 71,000 sq. ft.of teeing space, and almost 3 acres of short game space.
The practice facility is nearly three times the size of the former range and includes the addition of a shortgame area. Members and guests can enjoy three separate USGA-specified bentgrass greens, allowing for up, down and sidehill lies from rough or fairway. A fairway bunker between two of the practice areas allows members to practice one of the more demanding shots in golf.
For additional practice and instructional needs, Moskal Golf will feature instructors trained by renowned golf instructor, Mitchell Spearman. Open to the public, the academy provides personalized instruction and group lessons aimed at improving all areas of the game and features advanced instructional technology to assist with the learning process.
“Our focus has always been to provide the finest golf experience for our members and their guests. We believe our members belong to Belmont because it’s a special place, marked by beauty, history and tradition. We want our members to feel proud of what we’ve accomplished and where we’re headed in the future. This project is yet another step in that direction.”- Senior Vice President, Maurice Darbyshire
To help improve playability, the new range and short game area is fully irrigated and drained to significantly improve the summertime turf conditions. The range also includes a laser-leveled practice area that will more accurately simulate play and 22 artificial turf mats for use in inclement weather.
