Duran Golf Club is honored to have one of the Top 50 practice ranges in the United States.

For the fourth year in a row, the Duran Golf Club has received national recognition by the Golf Range Association of America (GRAA) as one of the Top 50 practice range facilities in the country. Award winners received recognition at the PGA show in January and were featured in the January issue of Golf Range Magazine as well as on GolfRange.org.

“We are flattered to receive this recognition again this year. The award tells us that we are recognized as a facility that provides a world class experience for the locals and tourists that visit,” said Dave Tomczak, the PGA general manager of Duran Golf Club. “The word is getting out.”

The annual GRAA award recognizes the country’s most outstanding golf courses and their operations. Duran Golf Club was selected for its wide range of amenities such as grass and artificial mat tee areas, a nine-hole par 3 practice course and a short game practice area. Best of all, the facility is illuminated at night which makes it the ideal course for those wanting to play golf during a non-traditional time.

An important aspect in receiving the GRAA award was the wide variety of program activities that Duran Golf Club offers such as adult education classes, adult leagues, junior programs, the PGA Junior League, private or group instruction and even club fitting.

Duran Golf Club also features a full-time staff of PGA instructors available year round to help with your game. Director of Instruction Justin Blazer recently was named one of the Top 50 Master Kids Teachers by U.S. Kids Golf, an award that recognizes the world’s most outstanding youth golf instructors.
