1. Eisenhower Park Golf Course
1899 Hempstead Tpke., East Meadow. 516-572-0348. www.eproshop.org
If a bucket of balls is your catharsis, rest assured that your release comes cheaply and beautifully. The driving range at Eisenhower Park, located in East Meadow, is a 400-yard sanctuary of plush lawns on which to grip it and rip it, as it were. Five bucks will get you 40 balls at Long Island’s favorite range, but can one put a price on the satisfaction derived from drilling a moving ball cart?
2. Heartland Golf Park
1200 Long Island Ave., Brentwood. 631-667-7400. www.heartlandgolfpark.com
Ever get tired of taking balls out of a bucket and having to bend over every time you want to take a swing at a golf ball? Well, Heartland solves that for you. The balls automatically come out of the ground as you prepare to take you’re next swing. So all your concentration is on your swing, not the bucket of balls.
