No matter how cheesy it sounds, you have to admit we all love a good aqua driving range. There’s nothing more relaxing than sipping a cool drink while smacking a bucket of balls into the water. And one of the best such ranges is located right here in Florida!
The Aqua Golf Range in Pembroke Park sits on a beautiful 20-acre lake and is famous for its appearance in the movie There's Something About Mary. The movie location manager, Sam Tedesco said it best when he proclaimed, “Thank God we’re here. I wish the whole movie could be filmed in Pembroke Park.”
Whether you’re just beginning or can swing like Cameron Diaz, this range is one the most relaxing places in Florida to hit golf balls. It’s open from 9 a.m.-9:30.p.m. and the double-wide canopy over the decks provides sun and rain cover so you’re set almost 365 days a year. Located only 15 minutes from the beach, it’s easy if you’re on vacation to sneak away for a quick bucket!
Traveling without your clubs? No problem! The Aqua range rents clubs for the extremely low price of $3 per set. I’ve been to plenty of driving ranges in my day, and I’ve never seen such affordable prices! So whether you’ve traveled to Pembroke for work or play, you’re always set to stop by and enjoy a bucket of balls.
