Golf Range Practice Session Generator

Welcome to the Golf Range Practice Session Generator, a simple tool designed to help golfers improve their skills through targeted practice sessions. This can also be used by coaches to quickly add some extra fun to their coaching sessions.

This user-friendly app allows you to customise your practice sessions with a specific focus on distance control and adding some variability to your practice.

How to use the app

  1. Set the minimum and maximum distances you’d like to work within for your practice session.
  2. Choose the total number of balls you’d like to hit during your session.
  3. Select the number of distance variations you’d like to include in your practice routine.
  4. Choose between a “Blocked” or “Random” approach for your practice distances.
  5. Click the “Generate Practice Distances” button to receive your personalised practice plan.

ps – I’m a golf coach (and scientist at times), not a developer, so I hope it works well enough as a free tool!

Happy practicing – Will

What distances should I pick?

The best answer is to look at your playing stats and see i) where you hit most shots and ii) where your weakest distances ranges are. However, I’ve pre-set this at 50 – 150 yards, I can’t think of a golfer I’ve taught that wouldn’t benefit from practicing more in this range.

How to add variability to your practice

This tool allows you to add variability in two ways:

  1. Add more distance variations within one session (this is pre-set to 3). As you increase this number more distances will be selected between your min and max range.
  2. Ramdomise the order of these distances rather than keeping them blocked.

If this is a new concept to you, stick to 3 distances and block practice to start with. Hitting shots in a randomised order quickly makes practice more challenging.

Why practice variability matters

Research has shown that incorporating variability into your practice routine can lead to significant improvements in skill acquisition and retention. By exposing yourself to a range of distances and varying the order of shots, you can train to adapt and perform under various conditions, ultimately leading to better performance on the golf course.

However, more practice variability is not always better. Check out this article to learn more about practice variability in golf.

The Golf Range Practice Session Generator makes it easy to add variability to your practice sessions, ensuring that you’re constantly challenging yourself and fine-tuning your skills.

I hope it helps makes your practice more fun and helps you shoot lower scores.

Happy golfing – Will @ Golf Insider
