The driving range and practice area at Birkdale Golf Club, affectionately known as “Palmer’s Playground”, includes a 10-acre practice facility that is under stadium lighting so you can work on your golf game during the daylight hours and into the evening after the sun sets. With Bermuda grass tees and artificial turf tee spaces available, you can practice your long game anytime; even during inclement weather conditions.

The short game area consists of two 5,000 square foot practice greens. The chipping green is an excellent place to develop that challenging bump & run shot that can save you many strokes during your round. The chipping green also has a practice bunker where you can develop your green side bunker game so you can drive your golfing buddies crazy when you keep saving strokes from the sand.
Before you tee off, make sure to test the putting surface. The putting green at Birkdale Golf Club is nestled between the 1st & 10th tees and is a great place to get a feel for the greens before you head out to play Arnies design. The Putting Green is also an equally great place to spend the day developing your putting skills.
