Last year, over 12.7 million golf balls made their way onto the Golf Center Des Plaines driving range as players logged a total of 14,297 rounds on the center’s nine-hole course, Des Plaines Park District Director Don Miletic said.

During holiday seasons, such as Thanksgiving holiday 2017, over 300,000 balls can be hit at the range over a two-week period. 

Golf Center Des Plaines driving range is “consistently ranked one of the top standalone ranges” in the country, according to the Des Plaines Park District. It operates year-round and features 80 lighted heated units on three tiers as well as automatic tee systems and 300 yards of targeted landing area.

A short game practice area is located at the center, and the par-three nine-hole course advertised as the fully-lighted course in the Chicago area. Night golfing is a popular feature at the facility. 

Golf Center is located at 353 N. River Rd.
