Emerson Golf Club summons swings with 18 uniquely challenging holes. Strategically placed water hazards pepper the open terrain of the front nine, and the back nine’s tree-lined fairways provide deciduous detours for off-target tee shots. Players can navigate the courses’ sculpted bunkers and well-groomed greens with a golf cart or use their rides to transform golf games into rounds of motorized polo. Before embarking on crumpet-less tee times, players can straighten out slices on the warm-up range and master trick shots on the 3,500-square-foot practice putting green. With this Groupon, customers and their spirit guides will also receive $10 toward upscale café fare at Muzzy’s Bar & Grill, Emerson’s cozy on-site restaurant.

Turtle Cove Golf Center sprinkles summer with the pixie dust of outdoor activities ranging from miniature golf to smacking fastballs in batting cages. A course with 18 mini-golf greens peppered between bright flowers and rippling water lures putters, and the 55 hitting stations at the center's 450-yard grass driving range beckon players looking to vent aggression through full-force swings or whispered threats to their tees. After bagging their clubs, guests can swing into batting cages to whack baseballs and softballs or relax at the Turtle Cove Café and munch on a hamburger.

In addition to practice facilities, Turtle Cove offers professional guidance on the art of the swing during lessons. PGA professionals employ high-speed digital-video analysis to break down each pupil’s form and technique as they drive, chip, and drop-kick golf balls into the hole.

When it comes to golf, practice makes perfect. But when playing a round of golf with a favorite foursome, players can spend more time traveling from ball to ball and changing the numbers on their friends' scorecards than practicing. That's where Willowbrook Golf Center comes in. The practice facility contains everything a golfer needs to shave strokes from his or her game, including a team of PGA teaching professionals. These coaches correct bad habits and impart game-saving tips at Willowbrook Golf Center's 80-stall covered range, which stays open from dawn until after dusk, letting players drive ball after ball without chasing them down. And for good measure, the center also throws in a 36-hole miniature-golf course, where putters young and old hone their technique as they roll past a 30-foot waterfall and rocky obstacles.
