Golf Driving Ranges
CHALLOW golf driving ranges are designed making the best use of selected timbers, both for the main structure and the cladding. They are enhanced by a coloured roof which enables the building to blend into any rural setting.
The driving ranges are generally constructed as a timber framed monopitch building with a front oversail.
The span of the driving range can vary from 4.0m - 4.88m, with an upper oversail of up to 2.0m. The height at the rear of the range is normally 2.66m rising at 15° pitch across the span (giving ample clear internal height at the actual driving position). Standard driving range buildings are available with 6.0m and 7.0m bays, each divided to provide two driving points. Longer buildings usually incorporate two symmetrical kicks or kicks on every bay to form an arched range - both enhance the appearance of the building and balance the actual driving distance.
Standard external cladding is pressure treated horizontal shiplap boarding to a height of 1.2m, with chevron boarding above. Other various cladding options are available.
The roof is Plastisol coated steel sheeting in a choice of colours, with timber bargeboards, rooflights (if required) and PVC rainwater goods.
Timber bay dividers are 1.25m high; clad both sides with exterior plywood complete with top capping. Coloured netted bay dividers available as an alternative. If a tuition bay is to be incorporated, a full height divider with personnel door can be accommodated.
A portal building off the rear of the range (constructed from similar materials to that of the main driving range structure) may be a consideration if you want to accommodate a reception area, office, professional shop etc.
Alternatively, a smaller lean-to off the rear of driving range is available for housing lobby and ball management equipment.
