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.

    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
