It’s difficult to hit a target from far away, which is why holes-in-one are rare and the Goodyear blimp has never been shot successfully with an arrow. Drive hard with a vengeance, thanks to today’s Groupon: for $25, you get four hours of play in a golf simulator for up to four people at Wildwood Pub & Grill in Grover (up to a $140 value).
Within the festive confines of Wildwood Pub & Grill, golfletes can blast powerful drives and sink dramatic putts within the hitting bays of About Golf PGA Tour Simulators. Clubbers pulverize real balls with their own set of clubs or modified crowbars into immense screens that vividly emulate 54 famed courses, including TPC Sawgrass and The Old Course at St. Andrews. During their four-hour foray, foursomes can elect to compete in conventional stroke play, join forces in a cooperative scramble, or activate the driving range setting for games of longest drive or closest to the pin. As the simulators whisk golfers to the elysian grounds of a far-away course, the lively pub keeps players tethered to reality with flat-screen TVs showing on-going sporting events or Cold War–era propaganda.
Wildwood Pub & Grill’s rates fluctuate throughout the day and week. Check ahead to make sure you are getting the most out of your Groupon.
