Designed by prolific golf-course architect Edmund Ault, Mill Quarter Plantation Golf Course nestles a par 72 championship course into the rolling Virginia hills, fitting 18 holes between lofty pines and restful meadows. Golf carts zoom over the slopes to a par 5 hole next to Fighting Creek, then ramp over hills to Hole 4, which guards its putting green with a sand bunker and a three-headed, fire-breathing german shepherd. The long stretch of grass at Hole 10 rewards long iron players, and the sneaky dogleg of Hole 14 curves strongly to the right, with a sand pit in the crook of its elbow and an audience of trees on either side.
Editor's Choice for the Best Public Golf Course in Richmond Good Life magazine, the Sycamore Creek Golf Course hosts one of the largest driving ranges in the area, ideal for learning the basics of swinging a driver or teeing off with a putter. Since credit for the 20 buckets can be used over multiple visits, fledging Jack Nicklauses can drop by Sycamore Creek after work, practice their power drive before taking the course, or stop in during lunch to launch a few shots toward the sun. Club swingers can visit the pro shop and snack bar to stock up on golf essentials, including visors, sandwiches, and more (not included with this Groupon).
Situated on 22 acres of land just west of Short Pump, Bogey's maintains an all-star roster of activities that has hosted fun outings since 1994. The facility's driving range, for starters, features 39 tee stations. Golfers can utilize every club in their bag while peppering targets that stretch from 25 yards to 250 yards. For short-game practice, the miniature golf course challenges putters with doglegs, water hazards, and other traps, and away from the greens, batting cage stations ping with pummeled balls as hitters take their hacks. Amid all this action, Bogey's makes sure to keep its guests fueled: the facility also boasts a snack bar and a pair of picnic areas.
Patterson Golf and Sports Park provides guests with ample opportunity to work on their game while gaming against their friends. The fully lit driving range features more than 25 matted tee stations, 10 target areas for chipping and driving, and obliging range balls available by the bucket ($9.50) or bucket-based four-pack ($29). The 19-hole mini-golf course ($5.50 per player per round) houses a traditional litany of disgruntled bumpers, plasticized animals, and strategically placed holes that drive putters wild. Conversely, for those who want to swing horizontally, Patterson's batting cages allow sluggers to swing at realistic targets dispersed throughout an open field. Pitches zing past the plate at speeds varying from 35 to 55 mph. Dispensing at significantly slower speeds, the facility's tokens ($3 each) grant batters 25 gloriously hurled orbs.
Bobby Lopez's passion for the game of golf was fostered by the expert tutelage of world-class players such as Bob Toski, Henry Cotton, and "Wild" Bill Melhorn. As a "Class A" member of the PGA, Bobby brings years of experience to his teaching game, a distinctive approach to instruction, and the ability to leap wide sand traps in a single bound. Bobby works with each golfer's mechanics and techniques, rather than against them, during drills he designed himself to help pupils cut strokes and time from their game. When not developing students' drives, short games, and club choices, Bobby hosts "The Bobby Lopez Golf Hour" on Fox Sports 1340 AM, and also takes time to support the USO.
