If you’ve spent time in the Hamptons, you know that The Southampton Golf Range is a well-known landmark for golfers and families alike. It’s got the convenience and services every golfer needs without the ginormous membership fee we’re used to around here. The range is better than ever this year, with more fun for the whole family thanks to some exciting upgrades. Family-owned and operated by the Hansens since 1957, the range just keeps getting better and better. The Hansens understand the importance of innovation, while maintaining the same classic feel that appeals to many returning customers.
The Southampton Golf Range is a Hamptons gem, serving all levels, from elite golf pros to first-timers, and everyone in between. The facility, which is also a fun and affordable go-to for mini-golf with the little ones, also recently added ballpark batting cages, heated tees, and they will soon have pedal cars, a golf simulator, and an ice-skating rink. Sounds like the range is no longer just a range at all, The Southampton Golf Range is transitioning into a year-round family hot spot with indoor and outdoor fun.
The range features 32 hitting stations, partially covered, new this year, allowing for shade in the summer and heaters in the winter. There’s also a grass hitting area and two Home Green Advantage synthetic putting greens. With three renowned pros teaching golf lessons, locals and visitors can take their game to the next level and even rent clubs at no extra cost. And, regardless of your schedule, you’ll be able to hit the range thanks to their long hours and night lights (9am – 10pm all summer, 10am to dusk in the off-season.)
This summer will mark the fourth season of Junior Golf Camp at the range, which takes place weekday mornings throughout July and August. Junior Golf Camp transitions the little ones into pros in no time with private and group instruction, putting lessons, fun competitions, mini-golf, and more. Camp is offered for kids as young as four (up to age 14) and will teach beginners the fundamentals of the sport in a fun setting.
One Healthy Breakdown: I personally prefer the mini-golf course, but if and when I take up golf, Southampton Golf Range will be my go-to.
