Life is about the journey - some roads are not always what they seem but you sure learn a great deal from them!

The Swing Driving Range is part of the Wembley Golf Course and is open to the public. It is a double story building with about 40 hitting bays on each level.

With a well lit fairway, which extends over 350 metres, golfers can take out the big club and give it 'run for its money'. Distance markers help with direction and gauging distance of each ball.

With early open times of 6:30 am and closing times of 9 pm, there is plenty of time to squeeze in some practice. Of course, if you find yourself struggling to find the 'sweet spot' on the club, you could book a lesson with the local pro.

I have seen a number of driving ranges in my life span and I must admit that the Swing Driving Range is at World Class Level. It is neat and tidy, has a seating room, hitting mats in good condition and runs on an automated golf ball dispensing system.

Each mat has it own automated tower where you can choose your tee height. Notably, if you do not want to use a tee, there is plenty of turf grass to hit off. The mats are secured, which means you cannot move them to align with a target. If there is one way to learn how to aim, a secured grass mat is the best method.

Golf Balls vary in price depending on the time of day, however $6.00 would give you roughly 28 balls. You can purchase a concession card for about $135.00, which will give you about 700 balls.

If you plan to plan to frequent this facility often, you may wish to invest in the membership options. Membership lasts one year, and offers a range of options which include golf balls, weekday golf, hire carts and discount at the pro shop.

Overall, I really enjoyed this driving range. The staff are friendly, there is always a vacant mat to hit from and the golf balls are in good condition, offering a more purer flight that maintains trajectory and direction. If I had to rate this driving range I would definitely give it 5 stars (out of 5).
