The Par Tee Driving Range and Miniature Golf Center, Lexington County’s Premier Golf Practice Center, invites you to sharpen your golf skills while enjoying some of the most scenic views in the Midlands.  Located on the Charleston Highway, at the intersection of Exit # 115 on I-26 and Exit # 1 on I-77, The Par Tee Golf Center is just minutes from Downtown Columbia, South Carolina.


For 24 years, golfers have been improving their golf game at The Par Tee Driving Range. This includes the University of South Carolina Men’s and Women’s Golf Teams, who have established a short game practice facility in conjunction with The Par Tee Golf Center.

Driving Range
The Par Tee Golf Center is a great place to work on your golf game whether you're a first timer or a seasoned veteran of the game.  This spacious practice facility offers a well kept, bermuda grass tee box that stretches nearly 250 yards across (over-seeded with rye grass during the cooler months).   We also have several artificial hitting mats, quality golf balls, and various targets located throughout the range for you to sharpen your directional skills.

The Par Tee Golf Center is now under the leadership of PGA Golf Professional, Tom Mason.  Tom brings 21 years of professional golf experience to The Par Tee Golf Center and offers Individual and Group Golf Instruction.  Tom will share his love for the game of golf, knowledge of the golf swing and short game, and course management skills to golfers of all ages, abilities, and skill levels.  Click here to learn more about Tom’s teaching philosophy or to schedule a lesson.

Mini Verde Putting Green
The Par Tee Golf Center's new 3500 square foot practice green featuring a Mini Verde putting surface is now open and available for customers to practice their chipping and putting. Our Mini Verde putting surface was supplied by Modern Turf, located in Rembert, South Carolina.  Modern Turf has provided the same putting surface for some of the best courses in the United States.  Use of the putting green is complimentary for all customers who purchase range balls for practice.  


Miniature Golf Course
