Driving Range Lighting from Access Fixtures

WORCESTER, Mass., Dec. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Work on your golf game later with custom driving range lighting from Access Fixtures. LED driving range lighting solutions allow golf courses, country clubs, and other outdoor golf facilities to stay open after dark. Since driving ranges are not designed in one particular length or size, lighting them requires customization. The average length of a driving range is around 330 yards long but this can vary. Most modern driving ranges are located on 15 to 17 acres of land. In terms of recommended footcandles, very few standard requirements are known. However, the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) does recommend 20 footcandles at the tee box and 10 footcandles of vertical illuminance at 600'.

"Lighting a driving range is really about projecting the most light at the tee box while still providing some illumination to the downrange area," says Access Fixtures CEO Steve Rothschild. "Using LEDs to light these practice areas allows facilities to stay open later and attract more golfers."

LED Lighting That Works

Due to the complex nature and scale of most driving range projects, choosing the appropriate fixture is important. The appropriate fixture must be high-wattage in order to project light towards the tee area as well as down the range. These fixtures also must be waterproof, wind-resistant, and able to withstand other outdoor weather conditions. Longevity is also a deciding factor as well as efficiency. Based on these requirements, Access Fixtures' APTI sports lighter would be the most prudent choice for lighting a driving range. These fixtures are L70 rated at 200,000 hours and are available with multiple mounting options for any style of driving range. For driving ranges with sheltered tees, APTI fixtures may be bracket-mounted on top of the tee shelter. For unsheltered tees, APTIs may be mounted on poles behind the tee areas. APTI sports lighters come in a wide range of wattages, Kelvins, and finishes. They are also modular and easy to repair if needed. APTI lighting fixtures are protected by a 5-year Access Fixtures warranty. To inquire about driving range lighting call us at 800-468-9925 or email us at customerservice@accessfixtures.com.
