The driving range stays open till 10 every night, as do the two putting greens and seven chipping greens. There are six pro instructors on hand and an indoor practice center with tees that are videotaped from three angles for swing analysis. In August, Fox Creek replanted all its greens with Champion Bermuda grass, a new hybrid “ultra dwarf” species intended to allow faster, smoother putts. Yeah, but can you smoke it?"
