As 2010's winningest graphite-shaft company, Fujikura enables golf-club buffs to get the most out of their game through a comprehensive swing analysis and appraisal of equipment needs. Developed by NASA to help Alan Shepard hit more moon fairways, an advanced flight monitor and proprietary-fitting software deconstruct performance and enable Fujikura's wizards of the woods to make recommendations based on each golfer's swing. Once fitting is complete, lab rats will be given a comprehensive printout delineating club data and the appraisals specifically suited to one's swing, along with a DVD recording of all hooks, slices, and green-jacket poses. This Groupon can also be used toward the cost of the 90-minute woods fitting ($150).

The 18-hole Reidy Creek Golf Course covers 2,582 yards in the rugged hills of Escondido, supplying guests with a scenic backdrop for club-based revelry. The rolling terrain of the par 54 course—intertwined with manmade obstacles such as sculpted bunkers, sinuous lakes, and wind—challenges golfers as they attempt holes-in-one. The distinctive course, designed by the notable engineers at Cal Olson Golf Architecture not to contain any two identical holes, contains a golf shop, café, and golf clinics taught by PGA professionals. ______________ Operating out of five courses throughout the greater San Diego area, JC Golf's Intro2Golf program fosters pin-hunting prowess with a shrewd blend of hands-on instruction, individual practice, and on-course experience designed to introduce the basics of golf to beginners. During the pressure-free sessions, JC Golf equips pupils with all the necessary equipment, saving neophytes the hassle of rustling up their own sets of clubs or graphite shaft bananas. Three additional buckets of range balls grant golfers the spherical tools necessary to implant newly learned concepts into muscle memory. The package also allows clubbers to loop the links at their chosen course twice after 4 p.m. for an additional $10 per round, allowing them to test their mettle amid the brambly hazards and sand-trap curmudgeons found on every real course.

Sculpted into the coastal foothills of San Diego County, Lake San Marcos Country Club’s North Course spans 6,426 yards of lush fairways and well-manicured greens. Throughout the course, mature trees await wayward orbs on the edges of fairways, and serpentine bodies of water crisscross fairways, punishing duffers for errant shots. Before taking to the links, golfers can prepare with a stint at the club’s full-length driving range, where all-grass hitting stations emulate on-course conditions as well as an opportunity to seek vengeance on Mother Earth for a lifetime of traumatizing grass stains. Casual eats at Gordon’s on the Green help restore energy after rounds that include the treacherous trek up the 12th hole—a 606-yard par 5 that runs almost entirely uphill. Those looking for a quick golf experience akin to reading the abridged version of Jack Nicklaus’s cookbook can take to the South Course, a par 58 executive layout.

Golf can be a bonding experience with friends or a make-or-break business meeting that masquerades as a leisure sport. Make the most of your time with friends and colleagues by knocking their argyle socks off with effortless dominance on the green. Today's Groupon to Carlsbad Golf Center gets you a one-hour private golf lesson with your choice of Carlsbad's experienced PGA and LPGA instructors (a $75–$125 value, depending on participating instructor), plus a large bucket of balls with which to practice during and after your lesson (a $10 value). Because the object of golf is to hole the ball in the fewest number of strokes, a better game will help you conserve energy for other activities such as off-track betting or braising Cornish hen.

Two large lakes glisten in the sunlight as they cast reflections of the towering trees. At Emerald Isle Golf's 18-hole executive course, the lakes form a nucleus that is surrounded by 16 par 3s and two par 4s. Players must blast soaring shots over the lakes on four separate occasions, unless they’re able to retrieve golf balls with golf-bag scuba tanks and 9-iron snorkels. Prior to a round, golfers can get a feel for putting speed on the practice green and warm up at the full-grass practice range.

Course at a Glance:

* 18-hole, par 56 course

* Total length of 2,452 yards from the back tees

* Course rating of 72 from the back tees

* Course slope of 113 from the back tees

* Three sets of tees per hole

Perched atop of scenic Goat Hill, City Center challenges seasoned and novice swingers cross its 4,797 yards elevation-changing fairways and lush greens. Designed by Ludwig Keehn, the par 66 course remains one of San Diego's oldest courses, as demonstrated by the glaring bald spot on its fifth green. Also dubbed "The Goat" by local club canoodlers, City Center's diverse terrain and epic mood swings ensure diverse amusements and shot selections. Par 3 and 4 holes wind through snaky hills of verdant foliage, along with a signature par 5 15th hole that boggles even the most technically skilled golfers. While the course contains no water hazards, its one-mile proximity to the Pacific coast keeps winds constantly shifting, demanding greater hole-to-hole strategy and argyle-knickers outfit selection.
