Like performing dental work with a ballpoint pen or whittling wood with your father-in-law, golf requires a steady hand and a wealth of patience. Make sure you have the right tools for the job with today’s Groupon: for $59, you get a one-hour adult golf lesson with professional instructor David Atchison at Burlingame Golf Center (a $125 value).
Dave Atchison uses his 36 years of coaching experience and Class A PGA classification, attained in 1981, to analyze and improve golfers’ swing, stance, and general game. Club-less golfers can grip a loaner set of clubs and begin their 60-minute golf lesson, which includes valuable professional advice from Atchison and emotionless electronic insight from advanced video and computer equipment. A CD of the lesson is provided to help students gauge their progress or to use as a cookie cutter for perfect CD-shaped cookies.
Dave Atchison at Burlingame Golf Center
Within the verdant expanse of Burlingame Golf Center’s practice facilities, instructor Dave Atchison, who attained PGA Class A status in 1981, imparts score-shaving tips to pupils of all ages and abilities. After demonstrating his passion for golf each morning by shaving with a sharpened divot tool, Dave heads to the golf center to showcase club-swinging skills that have fueled his 39-year teaching career, which has included six seasons of coaching at UCLA and another seven at UC Santa Barbara. With a full-length driving range, practice areas for chipping and pitching, and a sandtrap for bunker shots and makeshift hourglass construction, Burlingame Golf Center helps Dave and his clients foster improvements in all facets of the game.
