    I doubt it, a driving range would be a great way to spread a virus, everyone touching the same balls and only a crappy cold wash inbetween. (not to mention the mats, tees, vending machines, etc)

    They are controlled via an electronic unit within each bay, also the ball store has to be opened to get the balls in.
