Practice Facilities Independence offers two full-sized practice areas that allow you to hit off immaculate grass tees year-round. The practice tee nearest the clubhouse is comprised of a high quality range mat that extends the width of the practice tee. There is an expansive putting green and short game area adjacent to the area. The far end of the range is typically reserved as an all-grass tee. Independence also has three putting greens, as well as a short game practice complex complete with a bunker, large enough for five players to practice at the same time. The practice facilities allow you to polish all areas of your game.
