Stowe Mountain Resort accommodates the performance-minded golfer with a full-length, double-ended driving range that has natural-grass hitting surfaces at each end. Players hit full shots to bunker-framed target greens and practice in-close scoring shots by hitting to special wedge-shot targets. Short-game practice also happens at a bunkered chipping green and practice putting green. On the teaching end of the range there are covered hitting stations, pyramid-stacked practice balls and an academy building for indoor practice and instruction.
