New Short Game Practice Area

Bay Club Mattapoisett New Short Game Practice Facility

This past July the Bay Club at Mattapoisett completed a 1 ¼ acre Short Game Practice Area.  Watching the  Booth and Faxon designed course mature over the past five years has given Head Golf Professional Greg Yeomans a strong understanding of the course’s particular challenges and it’s impact on the players games.  With this knowledge, Yeomans and a group of Bay Club members approached Faxon and Booth to create a short game practice area that addressed the Bay Club’s specific needs.  The vision became a 7000 square foot practice area with a two tiered green, three practice bunkers, 70 yards of fairway along with ample rough grasses so players can practice every conceivable shot.

“Players will lower their handicap without ever having to make another full swing on the range by only utilizing this area,” says Yeomans.  “A player can now practice a 70 yard pitch shot, a greenside bunker shot, a chip shot, a flop shot and their putting all in one session and all from a variety of locations.  It has made short game lessons much more productive, as we can truly replicate any situation a player may face on the course.”

Club member Jeannie Smith recently stated, “The new short game practice facility has made a terrific difference in my confidence as I approach the green. Within a small amount of time it allows me to practice a seemingly infinite variety of shots.  I am certain that soon the time I spend practicing at this new location will show up in my handicap!”

The new short game practice area is the latest upgrade to the Bay Club’s golf facility with its 18 hole championship course, driving range, practice putting green, and indoor practice area.
