Get Physical: Time to Hit the Driving Range

Whether you're into playing a round of 18 holes or not, hitting some golf balls at the driving range can be fun for anyone. It's a great activity to do on the weekend with your partner, since it doesn't require a big investment of time or money. It is a great way to enjoy the fresh air and hit something with all your might.

Most golf courses have a separate driving range where you can perfect your swing, and often you don't need to be a member of the club to use it. A jumbo basket of balls only costs about $10; talk about a cheap date. If you don't own your own set of clubs, most courses have loaner sets.

If you've never played golf in your life, the driving range is a great place to start – it is the gateway drug to the game. I love practicing my swing because it's a great upper body workout. It is quite satisfying to see how far you can hit the ball. Fore!

I am absolutely addicted to golf. I love the game. Me and the SO usually play 2 days of the week and hit up the driving range another 2 days of the week. I recommend it to everyone.

I love the driving range. We go all the time. It's fun and nice way to meet new people. Someone is always going to give pointers on your swing.

omg, my boyfriend and I went to the driving range yesterday and we both got $10 worth (143 balls at this range). Right before we went, we watched a video online about the right way to swing. It ended up being helpful, actually. I would suggest bringing a glove or a bandage or 2 for your thumbs if you're not using your own clubs. The rubber on old club handles can wreak havoc on your skin!

I'm not a golfer, but I think going to the driving range is fun! My husband and I did it a couple of times last summer.

I love going to the driving range! I don't really like golf courses. Just the driving range. Get a work out and not worry about finding the darn ball! Lol.

I'm not a big fan of golf either! I was put in lessons at our country club by my father and gave it a shot, but I just didn't enjoy it as much as other activities. But I think it can be a great social game if you let it - you walk so much around the course, you get to have great conversations with your golf partners on beautiful days! So props to those that like it!

Not a golf fan...my husband and I went to a mini golf range once for a date and that's about as much golf as I can handle for a day.
