English term or phrase: Golf driving range (URGENT)
I am proofreading a translation of a brochure for publication. It is a brochure for a luxury holiday club in Portugal. Needs to be handed in by today, i.e. in about two hours.
Under the heading “Golf” it reads
Guaranteed start time and discounted green fees for Club members
Green free discounts in many of the local courts
Golf driving range

The translator left “golf driving range” in English. Should it have been translated? Also, what exactly does it mean?

Explanation:
Cristina, vi isto agora no Worldgolf, para driving range:an area or building used for the purpose of practicing tee-shots and other strokes.
Range- practice area

agora não sei se é de traduzir, talvez indagares se se utiliza o termo driving range em Portugal ou não.

suerte!

Obrigada, Rita. Eu nem sabia o que queria dizer:-(
Por acaso, um colega inglês já me tinha explicado que é um campo de treino, mas obrigada pela dica.
Deixei em inglês: uma pesquisa no google deu-me dezenas de hotéis em Portugal com driving ranges...
