• Jacksboro Golf and Country Club General Manager Dusty Massie hits some balls under the new lights at the driving range Wednesday.

Flipping the switch

Mike Kidd had big plans for the Jacksboro Golf and Country Club when he and his partners, Kevin Brunson of Weatherford and his wife Sandra made a proposal to take over management last spring.

Some of those plans have come to fruition.

Most notably, the course now offers a lighted driving range.

“It’s the only lighted driving range outside of the Metroplex,” said Dusty Massie, general manager. “The closest would be Leonards which is 60 to 70 miles away. It’s probably the only lighted driving range on a 9-hole.”

The driving range will be open from 8-10 p.m. each night with those times changing when the days get shorter.

The cost for range balls are $2, $4 and $8 for a small, medium or large bucket and Massie said a token-operated ball dispenser will be going in soon. Although the club does offer memberships, a membership is not required to play.
