This high-tech driving range with RFID golf balls is awesome. If a ball you hit reaches certain greens, a display monitor at your station will display its yardage and which part of the green it’s hit. You earn points as you hit golf balls on the driving range, making golf practice far more competitive.

The RFID golf balls travel just as regular golf balls do in terms of distance and control. Full food and drink service at the stations of the RFID golf range make this sports facility a social place, like the high-tech version of the corner bowling alley.
