Redwood Golf Center
Start your review of Redwood Golf Center.
Stopped by for the first time yesterday and I'll have to say, it ain't so bad! I only used the driving range, and I'm totally a novice, but everything seemed groovy to me.
The guy at the front desk was pretty laid back, the ball machine uses tokens, and the clubs you can borrow are pretty old and used...like Charlie Chaplin old, but for a beginner like me, they worked just fine.
I've seen this place for over two years on my way to and from work, and I'm so glad I decided to give Redwood a try. The place isn't the fanciest, but being completely on my commute route and having an inexpensive way to work on my swing, hey why not!
I wouldn't exactly call this place ghetto...more like, a small town golf center with rustic charm.
I go here since it's close but it's not the best. The mats here are extremely hard with little top surface 'grass' making hitting balls feel like you're hitting off concrete. I recently went to Jefferson Golf Park's range and the mats there are way better. You definitely get a better feeling of hitting of grass.
I would recommend going here and hitting the small bucket and/or use this place for practicing shots off the tee. Hitting a large bucket will wear you down.
This is my local driving range, and I get here a couple of times a week when I'm working on my golf game. Today was a rainy Sunday, and not very pleasant for a round of golf so I hit a bucket. Fortunately I got there just before the rush because a lot of other golfers had the same idea. After I got about halfway through my bucket of balls, there were at least half a dozen golfers waiting for an open spot.
Normally, the overflow is up on the second level, but there's no roof, so no bueno on a rainy day. This practice range is popular with families, and there are often a lot of young players out here on the weekends. Love to see more young people picking up the game.
A large bucket will run you $7, cheaper if you buy a punch card. They have golf pros who will provide lessons to newbies or experienced golfers. They also have clubs you can borrow, but they are ancient. Staff is friendly and helpful.
They also have a short game area with a chipping area, putting green and a bunker. The green is usually pretty long and fuzzy, so when I want to practice the short game, I go to the practice area at Willows run.
One of the toughest aspects of being away from home is finding a quality golf practice facility. I'm happy Yelp led me here!
When I first walked out to the driving range, I noticed how warm I suddenly felt...heaters at each stall?! Awesome. There are a ton of targets and yardage markers, and each stall has a little shelf stocked with rubber tees of varying sizes. There's also a second level ideal for the summer months.
I paid $7 (tax included) for 85 golf balls. I saw signs offering discounts for seniors & weekday morning use. I didn't have time to check out the putting green, but I saw a golf professional giving a lesson on the driving range while I practiced.
The only drawbacks I noticed were some of the range balls needed to be discarded, and it didn't appear they served beer.
Golf is not a sport I find interesting, unless I'm with a group of friends, and we're going to drink.
But my buddy got a prepaid card for about 20 buckets at the driving range from his ex, so we came out to play. The staff was nice and so were other players in the stalls next to us (no snobs).
Wow is this game boring without alcohol. But everyone was chill, so it was relaxing. I'm not about to quit tennis for this, but I could get use to knocking a few balls around in the summer here.

Going to the range is an awesome workout!
$6.50 for a large bucket which can last me a sooo long since I miss the ball half the time is a good deal!
There is an upstairs & downstairs. Downstairs have heaters! So you can shoot some balls without freezing your buns off!
They have clubs you can rent if you aren't ballin' with your own set. [=
Overall, I've been here several times & it's a great way to kill time & if you don't have anything to do on a sunny day, why not check it out?
It's a basic driving range. But it's cheap. And when it comes to ranges, as long as the mats work, the tees are the right height, it comes down to price per ball.
I like nice courses but I don't need expensive ranges. This is just practice balls, and I'm not a tour pro hitting proV1 for practice.
Functional, cheap, I just wish they had a better quality chipping and sand area.
Sure it's a bit of a drive from most areas outside of Redmond/Woodinville, but Redwood Golf Center has cheap buckets of balls and they have a significant number of driving areas on two levels. For $6.50 you get 85 balls. Most driving ranges in the area are more expensive.
They are conveniently located right off Woodinville-Redmond road just before the Woodinville tourist district. They are open 7 days a week. I generally go here, then head over to Columbia Winery to complete my weekend morning with a wine tasting :P
I go here once, maybe twice a week. A little ghetto, but come on, it's hitting golf balls, not the Masters.
The Good: cheap, plenty of stalls, heaters on the lower level, free coffee, well-marked targets, they've replaced a lot of the mats.
The Bad: I think the yardages are shorter than marked, the upper deck is in bad shape (but good for a sunny day)
The Ugly: the "putting green" is not good as its more like fringe, although it works for chipping.
If all you want to do is hit balls, it's a 4. If you want to work on your short game, it's a 3.
The good: cheap for a large bucket ($6.50), even cheaper before noon, heaters… Go here all the time.
The good: cheap for a large bucket ($6.50), even cheaper before noon, heaters (but not all of them work), punch cards, free coffee.
The bad: I don't think the targets are very accurate as I could probably throw a football and hit the 75 yard sign, and I'm no Peyton Manning.
The ugly: putting area Read more
As a newbie, this place is alright. Yes, newbie could be dangerous to be around. But, newbie got to practice to become better and less dangerouse to be around. =)
Upper Driving Range: No Roof
Lower Driving Range: Roof and Heating is available
Price: Cheap (Punch card is great deal if you come a lot)
(Complementary hot water and coffee)
Clubs rental is available.
Class is available
Redwood is sorta ghetto as far as the pro shop goes, as in dirty old couches everywhere. But if you are just concerned about hitting balls well it's just fine by me. A big bucket, which is really big, is $6.50. There's an upstairs and a downstairs so plenty of room to find a spot. When it's cold there are heaters which is nice. They've also got lessons and package but I've never tried those out. They recently had a deal on Groupon too which I am sorta regretting I didn't buy :( so that's something to keep your eye out for.
First to Review
Redwood Golf Center is a good place to stop by and hit a bucket of balls. They offer two levels of tees with a 250-yard range.
A large bucket of balls (quantity: 85) will run you $6. The tee boxes come equipped with heaters (though I haven't used them) and have a turf mat with alignment lines that you can turn and adjust. There are tees of a few different sizes at each box, so you can easily lift up your mat and change the tee height.
They also have a real putting/chipping green outside. It isn't in the best shape. Mole holes and uneven ground litter the area around the green. The green itself is soggy in some parts and burnt in others, but still has some decent areas for putting.
They offer lessons and a Pro Shop, neither of which I have taken advantage of. The Pro Shop looked a little bare to me though.
All in all, its a good place to hit a few balls and work on your putting.
$6.50 for 80 balls, the best deal I've found in the area. They have an upper deck and I never have issues finding an open stall to hit from. They have several targets out in the field to aim for which is nice. Plenty of parking. The water fountain rarely works, which sucks. Nice staff.
A decent driving range with a good price of $6 for a large bucket of balls. You have some dividers between players for those can get kinda crazy. Their putting/chipping green is really more of a chipping green at best, the surface is horrendous, but there is some area on the side to work on the wedges.

If you're a lefty, make sure you use the far left stall to avoid any confrontation or awkward stares when you're not swinging 'cause you'll be face to face.
