Hours of Operation
The Elson Redmond Memorial Driving Range is currently undergoing major facility upgrades. Through this process, The First Tee will administer a limited youth programs schedule but will not be able to support public use. Weather permitting, we anticipate an early fall reopening. Please stay connected to www.thefirstteerva.org for renovation updates.
For more information, please contact Mark Lynch, Director of Golf at The Elson Redmond Memorial Driving Range: firstname.lastname@example.org
The facility features a large grass practice tee for practice all year long and a covered mat area to protect patrons from seasonal weather. A chipping and a putting green are also available to all skill levels to practice short game techniques. One of the most unique aspects of the Elson Redmond Memorial Driving Range is the six-hole par-3 course, which consists of holes ranging from 75 to 200 yards, brand new vertical walled bunkers, and champion Bermuda greens.
Throughout 2016 and 2017 The Elson Redmond Memorial Driving Range will undergo sweeping renovations. Clearing and re-grassing has already occurred. During the winter, the clubhouse will become a youth-centric space for The First Tee Life Skills Experience classes. The clubhouse will also add two simulator bays for patrons to use year-round. In the summer, the driving range will be renovated to improve the grass tee and practice greens, as well as implant target greens for accurate practice. Upon completion, The Elson Redmond Memorial Driving Range will be considered the best public practice facilities in the Mid-Atlantic region.
The First Tee of Greater Richmond at the Elson Redmond Memorial Driving Range is also home to the 2015 and 2016 A-10 Champion VCU Rams Men’s Golf Team.
