Supreme Golf makes maintaining an oft-pricey golf addiction a bit easier on the wallet by granting golfers discounts at golf courses and golf schools, as well as cutting the price of books, golf clubs, and nutritional supplements. Golfers can enjoy relaxing, discounted rounds at area courses in cities across the country including such area courses as Bear Creek Golf Club in Dallas, Gateway National Golf Links in St. Louis and St. Andrews Golf and Country Club in Atlanta, soaking in the sights and badgering local pros for analysis of the annual caddie draft.
The path to straighter drives and lower scores is paved with range balls. Northlake Golf Club—a practice facility for golfers of all abilities—fosters full-swing practice at a driving range with a target field that extends more than 300 yards into the distance. A 40-yard short-game area helps golfers develop softer touch around the greens, and bunkers provide a convenient venue for them to practice getting out of the sand without worrying about ballooning scores. After swinging through a bucket of balls, guests can rest and watch TV at the outdoor gazebo or graze on the synthetic grass of the putting green.
Golf Depot's grass-hitting tees, covered and heated hitting bays, and lineup of expert instructors create a immersive environment in which to improve your game. Players can hone everything from their full swing, while emptying buckets onto the range, to their touch around the greens, possible in any kind of weather thanks to an indoor putting green. When practice by rote ceases to yield steady improvement, senior instructors Chris Hardman and Aaron Russell can take the reigns and pass on their extensive golf expertise through private and group lessons.
Hemmed by thickets of native grasses, a babbling brook winds along the fairways of The Golf Village's nine-hole, par 3 course, setting a relaxing tone that seems appropriate for a pared-down layout friendly to leisurely golfers. Adjacent to the course, The Golf Village's driving range fosters golf-game improvement during pre- or postround sessions. The range lets clubbers hit off grass tees throughout the year, and towering light fixtures hang above the green valley, allowing golfers to hone their swing after a day spent at the office or attempting to melt their leftover Civil War bullets into a set of golf clubs.
James Pugliese founded Better Golf Academy with a straightforward premise: simplify the golf swing for children of all ages. This approach, he knew, would help to grow the game, not only allowing current junior golfers to more thoroughly enjoy it, but also helping beginning youngsters stick with it through the inevitable frustrations. Through an array of lessons and multiday camps, the academy teaches young clubbers the entire game of golf, from proper full swing mechanics to short-game practice to proper etiquette and safety. Students will be tested for both strengths and weaknesses in their games, and prescribed drills and practice techniques to help them shore up those areas in need of attention.
Keith Hills Golf Club's three nine-hole courses convene for divergent 18-hole experiences along the cattail-lined shores of Cape Fear River. Daunting wetlands and well-bunkered fairways pose threats throughout the 27-hole expanse, placing a high premium on course management, deft club selection, and web-toed golf balls. The course's bermuda-grass fairways snake through the shadows of towering oaks and pines on their way to slick, bentgrass greens. The stately complex encompasses a 32-acre practice facility, a fully stocked pro shop, an onsite snack bar, and men's and ladies' locker rooms with showers to freshen up or revive comatose golf carts.
