All day practice range pass for $15

11 posts in this topic

The Meadows Golf Course at the Mystic Lake Casino has a $15 all day pass for the practice range. It's a first class set-up with a pitching green and a cut fairway with distance flags. Hit as many range balls as you want and use the practice putting greens. I was there almost 5 hours with a lunch break and hit about 400 balls.

I've bought the jumbo bucket before, which is $15 at my range, and I couldn't finish the bucket. I came close, but I bet I left a small bucket worth of balls on the ground.

I'd guess I hit a 33% to 50% of them at the 80 and 120 yard greens, so not a lot of energy spent.

Who gets a five hour lunch break?

I guess the post didn't read the way I intended it to. I wasn't there on a lunch break, I was there about 5 hours including the break I took for some lunch. I'm retired.

Thanks for the tip. I have a tourney coming up in 2 weeks. Is the pass good on weekends also. I only have a 3.5hr lunch break. smile I would like to try it out. I have never been there before. Do you know if this is a weekday only or limited time deal?

$15 is the regular "Range only" price and it's good for any day of the week. When you pay for a round of golf the unlimited range use is included with the green fee.

I would hope so. This place is so overpriced. Just like The Wilds.

Ya, the cost is up there at about $80. I'll go on Tuesdays before 11 a.m. when the price for seniors (55+) is $50 and includes the buffet breakfast. They don't advertise this special on their HSOforum.

    • Two charter boats. (11 people) Fishing was very slow last Sunday afternoon (8), but we did really well on Monday morning (43). Due to bad luck drawing cards, neither Mrs Duff or I touched a rod on Sunday. She went 5 for 5 on Monday. That's fishing for ya though. And true fishermen understand that.   Some real nice fish this year, good luck to those that make it out there.      
    • And no, it does not have some sort of virus. They are calling it a phishing site and it is not. It competes with Google adsense so it make sense for Google to be sloppy in their algorithm.
    • Great storytelling with pictures on a portion of your life experiences in the  great outdoors.  Thanks for sharing Len.  
    • Len - This was a very nice article.  I enjoyed your writing style.  Take care.
    • I am going to pick up a box to pattern against what I am shooting now. Here is my question. They are available in both 1 3/4 oz. shot and 1 7/8 oz. shot in 12 gauge. In a 3" 12 gauge #5 shot shell, that comes out to a 21 pellet difference. The velocity for 1 3/4 is 1200 fps, for 1 7/8 is 1080. At 20 yards it would make very little difference, but say at 45 yards would you rather have the extra 21 pellets or the added velocity? I suppose the answer is to buy both and pattern them, but I am curious as to the thoughts of the folks on this board. Thanks
    • I was looking to get an otter XT pro cabin this winter, I was wondering of anyone on here has an otter in the pro platform and how they like the extra insulated walls. Does it seem bulky? Too warm on above 0 days? I wouldn't mind just the normal cabin but they only offer it with a bench it seems but having the extra insulation may be nice to have for those cold days here and there. 
    • Thank You for the very interesting and enjoyable morning read
    • we have the 4.6 merc and found it bogged down until we popped new plugs in and it ran like a champ.  This boat sees well over 75-80% of its time trolling, but throttles down when we first go out each time.  Might be a different beast but in most motors hammering down once or twice each time you use it should be enough to keep things clean as long as your running non oxy gas.
