Home on the Range
The game of golf can be time consuming and an expensive hobby. If you’re not very good it can also be a very frustrating game. Some days you just can’t seem to hit the ball worth a damn and what started out as a stress-free 9 or 18 hole round, walking outdoors and playing with friends can turn into a 2 or 4 hour nightmare of hacking around and double-bogey scores.
On those days when I just don’t have the energy, desire or time for a 9 or 18 hole round, I head to the range to hit some balls. The range is a cheap, stress-free place to be outdoors and still able to practice some basic fundamentals of the game. I can also spend as much or as little time as I want there, unlike a golf course where I’m committed to 9 or 18 holes.
EG Golf Driving Range
Summertime in the Philippines is hot, especially in April. It’s 90 degrees plus everyday and more humid than usual. Spending 2 or 4 hours on a golf course in Angeles City is not an ideal situation in this stifling heat and humidity.
EG Golf Driving Range is an unpretentious, no frills driving range and golf shop that is the perfect place to go when I can’t make it out on the course, but still want to swing some clubs or hit some balls. It’s not a fancy place but it completely serves its purpose and the prices are very reasonable.
Mid-mornings and early afternoons are less crowded due to most golfers heading out to play rounds of golf. Early evening hours provide a cooler opportunity but last call Monday to Saturday is 8:30pm and 7:00pm on Sundays.
Pro Shop & Repair Services
EG Golf has a pro shop with a fairly large selection of golf clubs, gloves, apparel, bags, shoes and balls available at reasonable prices. Their selection of name brand golfing products makes EG Golf a one-stop shop for all your golf related needs.
EG Golf also has a repair shop that can re-grip, repair and make other custom adjustments to your sticks that will help improve your game on and off the course.
Practice Before Your Next Game
Spending time on the range can only help improve your golf game and EG Golf Driving Range provides an excellent, not overly crowded and unpretentious place for your to work on your mechanics.
If you’re looking for a high-end, country club style range then this probably isn’t the spot for you and there are other places in Angeles City for you to hit some balls. But if you simply want to get some warm up swings in before heading out on the links for your next game then EG Golf provides a completely adequate and fairly priced arena to suit your needs.
EG Golf Driving Range is located on Fil-Am Friendship Highway near the intersection of Angeles-Porac-Floridablanca-Dinalupihan Road, Barangay Cut-Cut. EG Golf is kitty-corner from the Jollibee restaurant at the corner of this intersection on Friendship Highway.
