Top 100 Ranges

Each year, Golf Range Magazine compiles a list of the Top 100 Ranges in America. The rankings for the past year are now out. Here are the Texas ranges that made the Top 100:

  • D.A.'s Spring Creek Golf, Plano
  • Games People Play, Beaumont
  • Golfsmith Golf Center & Harvey Penick Academy, Austin
  • Hank Haney Golf Ranch at Vista Ridge, Lewisville
  • Jim McLean Golf Center at Waterchase, Fort Worth
  • Leonard Golf Links, Fort Worth

About the new McLean facility at Waterchase, Golf Range writes:

48-acre golf training center includes a fully lighted practice range, with seven target greens, an 11,000 sq. ft. short game area including a bent grass putting green and three-tier practice bunker. 8,000 sq. ft. clubhouse incorporates golf fitness center, restaurant, 4 indoor, “Superstation” instruction bays, Full Swing Simulator, putting studio and clubfitting and testing center.

About Hank Haney's Lewisville facility, Golf Range says:

There have been a few changes at Hank Haney Golf. The original Golf Ranch is in the process of being redeveloped and the Citipoint facility will soon become a new TopGolf location. The “new” Ranch is the Vista Ridge facility. Upholding the high standards of the other Haney locations inlcuing Hank Haney at Westridge; Texarkana Golf Ranch and Cityplace Golf Center, Vista Ridge features a well
designed, range and learning center and a 9-hole executive length course designed by Haney and Jimmy Fazio. An 8,000 sq. ft. main building supports a 3,000 sq. ft. full-service pro shop.


  1. The Hank Haney Golf Ranch in McKinney was not in very good condition, when I went this spring.

    I finally figured out where the Vista Ridge location is, and will try that sometime soon.

  2. I've been DA's a couple of times. It's very popular. They do quite a lot without a lot of space.
