How We Chose the Best Golf Driving Ranges in Perth
With more than 10 years of experience covering the best golf driving ranges around Australia – including Sydney, Brisbane, and Melbourne – our team of editors has curated a list of the best golf driving ranges in Perth. They’ve taken into account everything from the number of balls in the bucket to the price your pay for those balls. They’ve also thought about the length of the range (choosing to rank those with a 150m+ range higher) while also thinking about all-weather play by highlighting those ranges with shade and shelter.
Perth Golf Driving Range FAQs
While you’re allowed to enjoy a drink or two on the course, most driving ranges in Perth prohibit the consumption of alcohol.
Shoes that give you enough grip when you swing your club are recommended. We typically lean towards trainers and sneakers.
Smart casual is the general standard when you’re going to a driving range. Typically, public courses have a more relaxed dress code, whereas private courses can ask for closed-toe shoes and collared shirts. We tend to wear a polo shirt, golf shirt and khaki shorts/pants with golf shoes.
