At Duff House Royal we have some of the best practice facilitates in the area with large areas that can be used for individual practice up to group coaching. Check out our Golf Academy for full details on tuition.  We have several areas to allow endless practice.

K Main Practice Range

Located a short walk from the Clubhouse, is our all weather sheltered practice bays which is ideal for players wishing to hit longer shots into the three small target greens. By appointment and can be used by checking in at the Pro Shop.

K Chipping and Bunker Practice Green

A dedicated double-tier green and deep, wide bunker provides the ideal test for for the finesse shots that that can turn any round into a great one.  Ideal for working on approach play around the greens and bunker shots.

K 18 Hole Putting Green

Adjacent to the main car park is the manicured 18 hole putting green which provides the same ball speed as the course.  The 18 holes offer all ranges of putts, plus the subtleties you can expect on the real thing.

K Warm Up Nets

We have two number practice nets next to the first tee and the pro shop to allow you to get ready for your round.

The Clubhouse provides a place of anticipation of the game that lies ahead and time for reflection on what might have been!
