The rolling emerald acres of this golfing Valhalla provide fairway-farers with a sweeping spread of short- and long-range training areas to hone ball-launching skills. Club collectors, armed with a day-pass punch card, can crush unlimited edifices of dimpled spheres from the 40,000-square-foot tee line of Zoysia grass without risk of waiting behind sloth-paced practice sessions. Alternatively, stock up for 18-hole outings at the PGA-professional-staffed pro shop, which stocks a variety of golfing shirts, grip-enhancing gloves, and accuracy-boosting Egyptian artifacts. Though not included in the value of this Groupon, you can also take a lesson from the professionals or relax at the Watering Hole for a cold beverage after a rough day on the links.
The San Antonio Tour Card is the golfer's gateway to enjoying the best of public/daily-fee courses in metro San Antonio.

From any one of the 20 hitting bays at Bracken Golf, golfers survey a 300-yard expanse littered with targets and yardage markers just waiting to be plunked by a long drive or an accurate iron shot. Drivers launch shots across the range from platforms covered with the same Natural Tif 419 Bermuda grass that is often found on real golf courses and PGA-sponsored parade floats. The BYOB course can host both serious practice sessions and more casual rounds of drive time.
