Since great aunts cannot resist pinching dimpled cheeks, the overwhelming number of dimples on a golf ball should confuse their grabby hands—defeating them once and for all. Drive dimpled dandies back into their holes with today's Groupon to Deep River Golf Range in High Point. Choose between the following options:
- For $19, you get five large buckets of golf balls to use at the driving range (a $40 value).
- For $30, you get a one-hour golf lesson at Scott Duerscherl’s Academy of Golf, located at Deep River Golf Range (an $85 value).
Deep River tees up putters and pros with a far-reaching fairway for swing practice, from flop shots to aces in the hole. Achieve true catharsis with the buckets of golf balls by picturing demanding bosses on the 9-iron targets before sending the balls flying into the wind without reclamation.
Frequent shankers and par lords alike benefit from instruction by PGA professional Scott Duerscherl, whose 10 years of teaching experience allow him to trim handicaps and perfect pitches. Range riders boost technique with a Stack & Tilt model—based on the signature swings of Ben Hogan, Sam Snead, and Lee Trevino—that teaches swingers to hit the ball farther, more consistently, and with more control. Tutees leave the lesson with decreased scores, increased green esteem, and fewer excuses to wear hand-knit sweaters with “Show Me the Mulligan” embroidered in argyle.
Deep River Golf Range
From their home base at Deep River Golf Range, PGA-certified instructors Scott Duerscherl and Riley Kurtz help students along the path to lower golf scores. The teachers adhere to an overarching philosophy that there is no single perfect swing that works for every player. Instead, they tweak an individual's natural mechanics to create a comfortable swing that can be repeated even when hitting from difficult lies such as hillside dirt or camouflaged snares. During lessons with either Scott or Riley, students focus on the fundamentals of making proper contact with the ground in relation to the ball and controlling the ball's flight path. Casio high-speed cameras capture each cut for analysis with SwingView Pro software, which can spot swing-inhibiting problems such as backswing hitches and straitjacket polo shirts. On days when inclement weather prevents practice on the range, players can head to the indoor teaching area, complete with a sheltered putting green.
