By Oliver Mauk

If you are looking for a good place to practice or don’t know where to hit balls, the below information showcases some of the best driving ranges in the DC area. If you are looking for a driving range that offers lessons, want to hit balls at night or are a golf snob who will only use grass ranges, the below information on the best driving ranges in DC should be helpful for you.

1) Olney Golf Park

3414 Emory Church Rd, Olney, MD 20832 - $7 to $16 per bucket

Olney Golf Park is much more than just a driving range, but a full on practice facility with putting greens, short game areas, and full pro shop.  There is an island green about 160 yards out that makes for some great target practice, and the range is lighted and open late.

2) Langston Driving Range

2600 Benning Rd NE, Washington, DC 20002 - $4 to $13 per bucket

This is perhaps the oldest golf facility in the area, but is still one of the best driving ranges around DC. The range has 30+ stalls and even has its own parking lot separate from the rest of the course, so is easy to just pull right up and hit a quick bucket if you're short on time.

East Potomac Driving Range

3) East Potomac Driving Range

972 Ohio Dr SW, Washington, DC 20024 - $8 per bucket

With 100 hitting bays, the East Potomac driving range is easily the largest in the area. 27 of the bays are covered and heated for winter play. It's also conveniently located for anyone living in the District of Columbia or Northern Virginia.  East Potomac has great views of city landmarks including the Jefferson Memorial and the Washington Monument.
