Marengo Ridge Golf Club
Marengo Ridge's congenial director of instruction and the coach of more than 3,000 lessons, Greg Baresel prioritizes fun as well as golf fundamentals to develop consistent, powerful swings. Baresel's relaxed coaching style and custom improvement plans have helped to banish embarrassing bogies from the games and noses of beginner and professional athletes. After fleshing out goals, bodies and minds focus on the three graces of golf—grip, stance, and alignment—to lay a foundation for future par chasing. Finely tuned positions promote coordination and sidestep swing flaws, and budding kinesthesia fosters insight into correcting errant club paths or safely picking up bindles. Hone a newly acquired swing on the course's driving range ($5 for 50 balls; not included in this Groupon) or indoors in the event of weather.
