Patriot Hills would be my only suggestion but they have mats to hit off. They also have a putting/chipping green by the driving range. They also have a nice short game area heading towards the first tee area with two bunkers and a second area for chipping and putting. The only negative is you have to buy balls down by the driving range and lug your clubs and balls up the hill towards the first tee. Sometimes you can catch a ride with one of the rangers and they will drop you off there.

 

Most public courses in the area all have mats on there driving range.

Yeah, I'm in westwood, and looking for the same thing. I don't think it exists in a public course. If you find one, let me know. I have been looking around at some of the private courses more for the practice facilities and ability to grab a cart and go practice on the course.

If you join a website called Boxgroove.com, you will have access to Forest Hill Field club in Bloomfield. It is private, however Boxgroove members do have access to the facility when booking through the website.

 

There have a short range, but the course is the only Tillinghast design you can play in north jersey without dropping $50,000+ initiation. The conditions are always a good step above the local public courses, and the layout is by far the best you, as a public golfer, can play in the area.

 

Hendricks Field which is right next to it, is a Banks designed municipal. If you like golf architecture, you will enjoy both courses. Conditions on Hendrick's are as you would expect for a municipal, but it is a solid layout.

 

As far as driving ranges and practice facilities are concerned, i think Valley Brook would be your best option, I haven't been their in years but they used to have good practice facilities, Chipping green with bunker, big putting green, short range but it was always empty.

Valley brook still has a grass range, short though. I don’t hit woods on it. They don’t have the short game area any more. It was always a low spot on the property and I think they just didn’t want to spend the effort on upkeep. Stinks because it’s about 5 minutes from my house and was the only place to work on short game

A buddy of mine recently told me that Rockland Lake now offers a turf range. I haven't been there in over a decade so I can't confirm/deny.

I can second that but quite a haul from where OP is located. Also OP hasn’t checked in since Oct so maybe not such a pressing issue at this stage but some of the private courses have dropped initiation fees to the lowest they’ve been in years.
