Claims:
[What claimed is :]
1. It's a driving range for doing hitting practice of ice golf ball (10) made by freezing water with a golf club (13) that an elastic body (l2) was inserted in the head or a regular golf club, by having many batting places (20) and distance indicators (21). It's a driving range for doing hitting practice of ice golf ball by installing abovementioned distance indicators (21) on the ground or on the surface of the water (25).
2. In the above 1, the above mentioned ice golf ball (10) is an ice of golf ball shape and is a frozen drinking water by purifying freshwater, and has many concave dimples (l 1) of roundshape on the outside of ball shape, therefore, it's a driving range for doing hitting practice of ice golf ball with some characteristic to get wishing colors by inserting edible coloring matters according to the needs.
3. In the above 1, the abovementioned batting places (20) can be installed on the ground (22) or in the building (23) easy to get a view or in the ship (24) like calmshaped ship or excursion ship, therefore, it's a driving range for doing hitting practice of ice golf ball with some characteristic to have many batting places to the one side towards the direction of hit ball.
Description:
DRIVING RANGE FOR HITTING PRACTICE WITH ICE GOLF BALL TECHNICAL FIELD] This invention is regarding driving range and it is a driving range for doing hitting practice with the ice golf ball with golf ball shape.

However, as publicly understood, most of the past driving range on the ground is located in the downtown of high land price, and it's also complicated facility needed to invest lots of money for prohibiting balls-seceding or removing balls (iron structure or net etc.), and need high operating cost because they have to change expensive balls very often.

It's certainly stuffy with some spaces entangled with the framework of iron structure and net and there may be some anxiety about damage of nature and demerit to be unable to confirm landing spot of hit ball. Therefore, it is true that people hope to do hitting practice on the wide space.

As the below example, the past driving range on the water is a complicated facility needed to invest lots of money, which has to install fence or net like floating body on the surface of the water for removing hit golf balls (less than specific gravity of 1) and remove drifting balls with net pole or induction machine by collecting to same space.

<Example> 3 Filing Patent Application No. 0240808 (1999.10.29) a Filing Utility Model No. 0145138 (1999.02.10) a Open Publication No. Special 1998-065802 (1998.10.15) Demerits of this driving range on the water are as follows: i) the operating expense is high due to the exchange and loss, ii) it's difficult to remove if there is no flow of

water, there is some possibility that much quantity of floating body, het and anchois fixing it may interfere in the flow of the water or the ecosystem below the water.

Specially, it's also very difficult to operate during big flood or continuous drought and it's also a big demerit that there is some difficulty in operating due to the freezing of facilities at the time of severe cold.

[TECHNICAL BACKGROUND] This invention is made for eliminating facilities needed to prohibit balls-seceding or remove balls. That is, the purpose of this invention is to provide for the driving range for doing hitting practice with the ice golf ball of golf ball shape, which is for single usage not necessary for removing balls because they thaw after hitting.

[DISCLOSURE OF INVENTION] For accomplishing the above mentioned purpose, this invention is made to hit ice golf ball (10) made by freezing water with a golf club (13) that an elastic body (12) was inserted in the head or a regular golf club, and its characteristic is that it is the driving range to be able to do hitting practice at the condition with many times of batting places (20) and distance indicator (21) on the land or water.
