For most golfers, amateurs and professionals alike, the quickest way to shave strokes off the scorecard is to possess a strong short game. The ability to effectively pitch, chip and putt during a round of golf will help keep scores lower. For the members of Kemper Lakes Golf Club, testing their skills on a variety of shots from 70 yards and in has become a part of their practice schedule.
Kemper Lakes Golf Club has a practice facility featuring 3 large putting greens, two bunkers, a bent grass short range for shots up to 40 yards, a wedge range for shots 15 to 70 yards, and a large green with bent grass for practicing a variety of chips and pitches.
"One of the values of our Club is that ‘golf is our core passion.’ We want golfers in our region to enjoy the overall golf experience at Kemper Lakes and know it is a place to develop their skills.
"This short game training facility gives us a customized short-game area that is second to none. Club members can go out and spend as much time as needed to work on the shots that ultimately make the most difference in a round of golf -- pitches, chips and putts,” John Hosteland
The practice range at Kemper Lakes features a large grass tee and custom artificial golf mat for early and late season use. The practice facilities at Kemper Lakes are one of the best in the area and set Kemper Lakes apart as a place for golf members to hone their games.
