A new self-serve golf driving range, called St. Etienne Driving Range, just opened last week at 711 St. Etienne Rd in Broussard, LA.
Located off Hwy 90, the new local driving range features 20 covered hitting bays with premium turf mats and strategically placed yardage flags and targets in the landing area to provide an exceptional practice experience. There is no rental fees, no “pay-per-hour” fees, or anything like that at St. Etienne Driving Range. All you need to pay for are your bucket of golf balls, which goes for $7 for 48 balls or $12 for 96 balls. You will need your own golf clubs though, as they do not offer club rentals. Personally, I wish they did have a small selection of golf clubs. I like to hit from time to time, but do not own clubs as I do not play golf regularly like some of my more well-off friends.
“It was evident that the people in this area have such a love for golf and we wanted to bring a quality driving range that the community would be proud of,” says owners Anthony & Danielle Chiarulli.
The owner, Danielle, was even kind enough to allow me to hit a few balls with her driver just to get a feel of the range. I can tell you that it was nice having the covered hitting space during mid-day. Not that it was hot or anything really, but not having the sun on you the whole time was great.
“Our mission is to provide a convenient, comfortable, and quiet environment to practice your aim and distance without breaking the bank,” says Chiarulli.
