Forest Hills Golf Course adds new driving range

Forest Hills Golf Course to reconfigure layout

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – The City of La Crosse, Forest Hills Golf Course and KemperSports announce the completion of the facility’s new driving range.

KemperSports General Manager and Head Golf Professional at Forest Hills Golf Course, Keith Stoll, is proud to unveil this new addition to the practice facility. “The driving range adds to an
already best-in-class experience at Forest Hills,” said Stoll, who has led the team at the property since 2009. “We are excited to offer a new facility for our guests to practice and warm up, and
we are looking forward to using this space to engage local juniors and beginners with new programming for lessons and clinics.”

The range was closed in 2014 for railroad construction. The updated range features 15 hitting mats and is 270 yards deep. The facility will also offer natural grass bays, which simulate the on-course experience, are scheduled to open later this summer.

“The driving range serves as a great way to engage the local community in a safe activity at the golf course. The goal of this project was to create a driving range that appeals to our core
guests and avid players, who come here to practice. But, we are also looking to attract a new generation of golfers, especially juniors, to learn the game with expert instruction from our
professional staff,” said Jay Odegaard, Director of Parks, Recreation, Forestry, City Buildings and Grounds at the City of La Crosse. “This is a great, affordable amenity for the golf community in La Crosse, and we are eager for them to experience it.”
