Usually eating a burger doesn't do much for your golf game. But it just might when you're eating it at Rolling Oaks Golf Club Bar & Grill. That's because the restaurant features its very own driving range, where diners can whack buckets of golf balls on a 40+ spot range, or on extra large chipping and putting greens before and after their meals. A practice sand trap keeps their skills sharp, and they can even measure their progress with signs marking 110?272 yards.
When they're done practicing, it's time to head back in and grab an order of fried pickles, some chicken wings, and an ice-cold beer. There's also an outdoor patio where diners can enjoy happy hour drinks daily and live music on the weekends while they watch the sun travel to China.
As the former world-record holder for driving distance, Brad Peterson turned his passion for power into an all-encompassing purview of golf strategy. For more than 14 years, Brad has been helping golfers lower scores through private and group lessons at Peterson Golf. He determines the issues his student might be experiencing and identifies key areas for improvement. Armed with this information, he devises custom lesson plans, including swing-specific exercises and video-swing analysis to reveal imbalanced backswings and triple-axel follow-throughs.
Although Brad has taught more than 8,000 students in his career, one pupil stands out, not only as a physically imposing human but also as a success story: NBA Hall of Famer Rick Barry. After meeting and discussing golf, Brad turned Rick into a three-time RE/MAX World Long Drive Champion with his techniques for maximizing power and avoiding low-post rejections by other former NBA big men.
