Situated beside the clubhouse at Quivira Golf Club is one of the rarest sights in all of golf: A spacious, double-ended practice facility that parallels the ocean, with the sandy beach and rolling surf a mere wedge shot away from the verdant turfgrass.

The driving range portion of Quivira’s practice facility, which features target greens and bunkers, is really two ranges in one. A dune ridge divides the expansive hitting area into a pair of simulated fairways. One is set directly above the beach. For players who resist the distraction of the crashing waves and breaching whales, it’s a perfect place to warm up. On the other side of the ridge, players can enjoy a more sheltered practice environment in a pure desert setting. For a personalized experience, the club’s professional staff can organize private lessons and clinics.

Directly outside the clubhouse is an elongated 18-hole putting course that closely simulates the speed and texture of the greens on the golf course. Adjacent to the practice putting green is a short game practice area where golfers can work on the all-important scoring shots required to score at Quivira, including chipping, pitching and sand play.
