Frenchman’s Creek offers one of the finest practice facilities in South Florida. There is a teeing area on both ends of the range, with the range oriented in a true North and South direction, so that players don’t look into the sun when utilizing the area and the prevailing winds are both down range and up range.
The practice facilities also feature a spacious short-game area. There is enough room on the short-game area to offer short and medium chips, and long pitch shots, plus there are three greenside practice bunkers that replicate those on the courses.
Finally, Frenchman’s Creek has two putting greens that replicate the greens on each of their courses.

The practice green is just a pitch away from the west end of the driving range and is consistent with the greens you will find on the course. An interesting feature to the practice green – two miniature-sized holes that challenge you to be ultra-precise with your putting.
