I am wondering what is everyones thoughts are for the best place to practice for juniors.  Our current club has gotten so busy it has become hard to play rounds and I looking for other options.  I am wondering if I need to find a new club or perhaps go to a practice  / range and public courses instead.

It is in season now for Florida.  Gets too dark too early and every thing is full on the weekends.  I hate making tee times as we may only play 5 holes, sometimes 15 it just depends.  Our club is a practice facility only.  The day my son graduates is the day I stop giving them my money. Can't wait until the Blue Haired snow birds leave in April and they just got here.

We are right the oppasite we send the blue hairs down there. Although our course is busy in the evening with 4 high school golf teams and 1 small college practicing. We often go to a course further away just to be able to hit the range, practice greens are maybe 9 holes. Only problem is there greens are not as good. They are much slower.
My dad goes to Sarasota in winter. We go in the summer slow season love it me and my son can play anywhere we want to for dirt cheap.
I'm starting him in tournament this year hope we can find one close to Sarasota this year just so he can play deferent caliber players. I hear Florida has some great JR golfers

Seems like everyone does a little bit of everything. To me living on a golf course near the driving range would seem ideal.  I am trying to figure out if there is a way I can do lighted ranges/ Golf courses in the winter and then just have a summer membership when the daylight gets longer.


Current club isn't going to work much longer as they are cutting costs and not even putting out much range balls anymore so it almost useless even as a practice facility.  Sounds like I need to do a range and then just do some muni's until I figure out a long term solution.
