Hobson Driving Range

Did you know that the City is working on its first driving range along with other updates and changes at the Hobson 9 Hole Golf Course?

In the beginning of 2019, the City started work on updating the course and installing the driving range. The range will have approximately 20+ booths with both grass tee boxes and some matted tee boxes. Grass for the tee boxes is being installed this month and poles are currently up with netting being strung.

Every week supplies and equipment are being delivered, and we are hopeful that the driving range will open as early as September with the 9 Hole Course re-opening a few weeks following.

Changes to the 9 Hole Course at Hobson include: new Bermuda grass on the greens, many of the greens have been reshaped, cart path updates in many areas, new #6 green, new #7 tee box, new #9 tee box, and irrigation updates.

Total cost of the driving range is just over $500,000 with the majority of that being spent on pole and net purchase and installation. The City has continued to complete as much in-house work as possible on this project.

The Hobson 9 Hole Course will cost $20 to play 18 holes and $15 to play 9 holes (the same as Paul Walker Golf Course) while the Hobson Driving Range fees are set for $4 for a small bucket of balls and $7 for large bucket of balls.
