|New driving range now open at Tomahawk Hills Golf Course|
The course's previous driving range closed in early 2010 as work got under way on a new clubhouse for the course. The new clubhouse, which conducted its grand opening in mid-April, is located on what was part of the previous driving range. The new driving range is located in part on the site of the previous clubhouse building, which was razed earlier this year after the new clubhouse opened. It also encompassed the area of the former hole #1 fairway.
The opening of the new driving range follows the opening in mid-July of a new tee area and fairway for the course's hole #1. The fairway for the new #1 has a southwest alignment and remains at about 360 yards in length. It is a "layup" hole requiring golfers to hit about 200 yards to land short of Little Mill Creek or attempt clearing the creek. The tee area for the first hole is now located west and slightly north of the course's clubhouse in an area which previously housed the Tomahawk Sports Dome.
The new driving range is open daily until about 30 minutes before sundown. Buckets of balls for the range are available for $3.50, $6, or $12.
Tomahawk Hills Golf Course is located at 17501 Midland Drive, Shawnee, and can be reached at (913) 631-8000.
