The Range is a beautiful new driving range with all of the amenities but, with some very special additions...
The majority of the staff employed at The Range are clients and residents of the BRCCED! Various job responsibilities include: maintenance of the grounds around the clubhouse, tee decks, and putting and chipping greens; picking up balls; serving customers; and stocking the shelves inside the clubhouse.
