Best Driving Range (2003)

Hermann Park Golf Course

Most driving ranges offer little in terms of obstacles. They're usually just wide open spaces with a few mounds and flags scattered willy-nilly so there's something to aim at. Hermann Park's range boasts a cluster of three tall trees smack in the middle of the field. Now that's useful. It makes the range a place to actually practice skills instead of just firing off a bucket of balls. Also, there's a certain Zen quality to lofting ball after ball over those trees. A seven iron, in conjunction with a canned Budweiser (bought from the clubhouse), works nicely to aid this type of meditation.
