Without an instructor's outside opinion, golfers would never know about the hitch in their swing or the thousands of centipedes writhing on their backs. See things differently with this Groupon.
$39 for a Private Golf Lesson and Practice Session ($80 Value)
From Cedarbrook Country Club's grass tee driving range, putting green, and chipping area, PGA Class A professional Tom Herzog uses his 25 years of experience in private lessons tailored to each golfer's needs. After the 30-minute lesson, if there's room on the range, golfers can test out new skills with 45 minutes of unlimited practice balls. Call ahead to reserve a lesson, which can be scheduled from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday–Sunday.
Cedarbrook Country Club
Cedarbrook Country Club incorporates the rustic beauty of the New York countryside with a 6,658-yard golf course lined with mature trees and vibrant landscape features. Each fairway bottlenecks through groves of timbers, requiring golfers to exhibit accuracy off the tee and keep claustrophobic golf carts from fleeing to the open driving range. Slow-starting swings can work their kinks out early in the round, as an errant shot on the first hole—a 490-yard par 5 that gently doglegs left—won't necessarily derail a chance at saving par or sneaking a quick snooze in the long grass.
Before rounds, golfers can loosen up at the multifaceted practice facility, where practice balls soar over the driving range and roll over a practice green. Class A PGA instructor Tom Herzog runs the pro shop and uses his 25 years of experience to teach private and group lessons along with his staff of professional instructors. Racket-wielding guests can slide and shuffle across the soft, Har-Tru surface of the club's 13 tennis courts or hit flush forehands off the walls of two racquetball courts. The private establishment also encompasses a 300-seat ballroom, cocktail lounge, and a swimming pool for those who prefer chlorine-rich libations.
