Denmead Golf Driving Range
Ranked #2 of 2 things to do in Denmead
Attraction details
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Have used Denmead Golf Driving Range on many occasions and have found it excellent. Nice and relaxed for the self conscious golfer trying to re-acquaint themselves with their previously (somewhat) ok swing without staff fussing and offering tips every 5 seconds (although owner always offers advice when asked which is really nice.) Facilities excellent and the rural surroundings and fauna also brings some extra joie de vive to the experience. No fuss, no hassle, no young idiots in expensive golf wear selling equipment they know nothing about, Just a really excellent, relaxing experience. Just what the game is about! Would recommend to anyone.

What a beautiful place for a driving range. Not a car engine to be heard. Excellent facilities and friendly helpful staff. Tree lined drive with two cute goats in the field to talk to. My children love it! Nothing too much trouble owner lives on site and is always happy to help or advise. Highly recommend.

Long drive down to driving range is shocking. Pot holes everywhere, muddy and dirty. Owner is very anti children. Told me that my 5 year old son could not use the automated tees as they were for the "oldies" that couldn't bend down. Oh please....Bit pricey as well.. Avoid and go to Portsmouth driving range. Modern, friendly and well equipped. Would not visit here again. Ever

Sorry you feel like this.
Nobody in the 17 years we have been open, has ever complained about the length or condition of our driveway. Yes, we are well off the road, but given that 99% of our customers come in a car this is not really an issue. The driveway does have a few small holes, but compared to the condition of most of the roads round here at the moment it is not bad! There is certainly nothing that would cause damage. We use the drive ourselves constantly as we live here, in our cars, on foot, with horses and on bikes so it can't be terrible.
We will advise people that the Power Tees are not really suitable for young children to try to use, as they require the ball to be hit with a certain amount of weight behind the swing. However I am certain you were not asked to move to another bay, as if you were happy with your child using the tees, that's fine! We have children ourselves so we are definately NOT anti children. We welcome supervised children at the range.
It is unfair of you to direct people to use Portsmaouth range. We do not compare ourselves to them. They are a big, Council run and maintained range with a huge turnover. We are a small family run business in a rural location, and trying our best to offer a service.
Reviews such as this which are not entirely truthful are very damaging to small businesses.
Again, sorry you didn't like our faciliy.
