As you know 42% of the game is putting come and practise your putting here before or after your game. We have a magnificent practice putting green with the best views in the country. This will help you improve your short game and lead to better scores.


Tired of destroying your game with bad chips? We have a great 60 yard pitching and chipping green to practice these very demanding shots. Come and practice at this great facility which we have available to all golfers.


We have a really cool practice bunker which will help gain confidence on these score saving shots.


With the unpredictable weather in January and February, why not plan some of your practice indoors to our state-of-the-art putting studio. Putting is arguably the most important aspect of the game and our PGA Professional Alan Staunton gives tuition in our state-of-the-art Indoor Putting Studio.

The putting studio uses the advanced Capto Golf System which gives users up to 20 readings on their putting stroke with video recordings available to ensure that improvement can be monitored and passed on to the golfer.

Along with the stroke, the length, loft, and lie of the putter itself can be checked, measured, and adjusted to ensure the player is giving themselves the best opportunity to improve their stroke and score. 

Most putters used by the amateur golfer are bought directly from retail stores and not fitted correctly.


We have an extensive practice putting green outdoors as well as our state-of-the-art indoor putting studio. 

Whether having a practice before your round or taking a lesson with the Golf Pro, Alan Staunton, Deer Park Golf has a full range of practice facilities at our Short Game Centre.
