The Vic Hadfield Golf & Learning Centre is a full-service golf and learning facility. In addition to our 120 tee areas where golfers hit off mats and/or grass we also provide a self contained short game area which includes two bent grass putting greens, a chipping area and a chipping green with a practice bunker.

Artificial Mats: For those learning the game of golf, artificial mats can be a great confidence booster. As well, for those rainy days when seasoned golfers still like to get out and practice their swing, the mats provide a much drier surface to swing from. We offer 50 mat areas for learning.
Stressing the Short Game: There's no denying that the short game is the most important aspect in golf! Consider that 65 percent of all strokes during a round of golf are executed inside 100 yards, 43 percent of which are putts. If an average golfer shoots 90, 58 of those shots are taken within a pitching wedge of the hole.
"We fancy ourselves as a place to learn the game and we stress the short game," says Vic Hadfield, owner of the range. "Just having it at our facility makes a statement."
Maintenance is a top priority at Vic Hadfield Golf & Learning Centre and keeping the short game area in top shape is a daily activity.
Target Areas: One of the premier reasons to practice at Vic Hadfield's Golf & Learning Centre is our carefully measured target greens from 50 yards to over 300 yards. Each tee-line hitting stall has a sign with its specific yardages. Next time you go to the golf course you'll have a better feel for club selection from any distance!
Sand Traps: As part of the short game area you will find our practice bunker. This is a critical part of the game that, when mastered, can take many strokes off your score! You can practice "to the green" short shots or fairway iron shots.
Chipping Area: Our two bent grass chipping greens allow you to practice chipping and pitching. You can practice your low running chips to high lob pitches.
Putting Greens: Our 2 highly-maintained bent grass putting greens give you plenty of room to work on all kinds of putts. You can practice simple straight putts to long breaking speed putts.
Party Room: Grab a snack and hang out in our covered area that doubles as a party room for fun outdoor birthday parties! Play a round of mini golf then have some cake. More details on our birthday party page.
Before the Storm: One of our employees named Sylvester, who is a great photographer, has taken an awesome picture of the golf centre just before a thunder storm. Click on the image to view in a larger frame.
