Yes, it's a little pricer, but the more games you redeem at one time, the cheaper it is per game.. so get 3-4-5 games when you go to make it a better value.
And yeah.. I usually make it a 2-3 hour event with friends, and we can kick back a few beers, and shoot the proverbial s***...
Also, check for daily specials. There are many times I go to the one here, and get 100 balls (5 games) for $15.. they have daily specials like this.

That's only if you go once, and don't average it out.
It's more like $4 for 20 balls. But.. you're getting more value than just the driving range beating balls.

It's best for grabbing a drink or two with a co-worker, taking your wife/GF and introducing her to golf, and in some cases a good reason to get off the beltway when there is serious traffic.

For starters, the balls are in pretty bad shape. Half of them are now bald. My last trip had me hitting some balls that had dirt caked to them, even though there is no dirt on the range.
The balls are also some of the deadest range balls I've ever seen. On a trip last week, I wasn't playing particularly well and decided to eff it and just hit some drives. The balls went NOWHERE. They are dead to the point of affecting club selection too. I have to club down one to two clubs when using them just to get the same distances I get out of decent range balls on real grass.
Lastly, they don't do a very good job of repairing their sensors. I can literally tell when they do it because one trip I'll go and a solid 10% to 15% of my shots that land on target don't count (usually the ones closer to the edge). And I use the second floor and have perfect eyesight so I see exactly where the ball went in. I'll hit one on target and it just plain doesn't register. I can manually adjust the score but then I disqualify myself from the leaderboard.
Then I'll go there again and all the sudden all the targets are working again. They let the faulty sensors really pile up before committing the resources to fixing them.
The place is fun, the bar and menu selections can't be beat - but if you're looking for a regular practice facility - this probably isn't the place for the typical WRXer.
edited to add: I go at lunch when games only cost $3.50 each. Much better value for 20 balls then later in the day when it can cost up to $7. That's insane for some of the worst quality golf balls I've ever seen.
