True to its name, Marine Park Golf Course grants golfers panoramic views of the water as they traverse its 18 holes. But luckily for players with a fear of leviathans, most of the water remains at a distance. The course, which measures about 7,000 yards from the back tees, features only one such hazard, popping up on the ninth hole. The hole demands that golfers' aim stays true down the middle, lest their ball gets caught in the water, foiled by a bunker, or swooped up by a falcon. There's more to the facilities than the course itself though. Golfers can brush up at the irons-only driving range or take lessons with no club restrictions from experts like Hunter Watkins, a punk-rocker-turned-golfer profiled in The New York Times for his penchant for mixing music concepts into golf lessons. Top-notch practice facilities and a new indoor performance studio help golfers further refine their game, regardless of the weather.

Golf Manhattan's virtual-golf facility combines the experience of a day at the links with a wide variety of creature comforts and game-sharpening lessons. PGA tour simulators re-create more than 50 courses from the world over in immaculate detail, while clients swing provided clubs and practice golf-cart wheelies in cushy chairs. The launch monitor and simulator accurately plot the trajectory and physics of each shot onto digitized fairways, and track important statistics, such as ball-spin rate, launch angle, and how many virtual divots each player has to fill in. Lessons with Class-A PGA professionals, PGA apprentices, and teaching professionals correct slices and fades, and a 46-inch television in the golf lounge pipes in the latest news from PGA tours. An onsite locker area equipped with a jacuzzi, sauna, and steam room limbers swinging arms for important skins games.

Drive495's instructors believe that swing mechanics and golf strategy begin with physical fitness, which explains why the facility is stacked with kettlebells, ropes, and an array of other functional training equipment. Students improve their form in the golf course simulator and enhance strength and balance with semi-private fitness or Sean Hinds' muay thai classes. Students can expect improvements in both swing consistency and endurance, enabling them to produce long drives and divots long enough to be worn as a ties well into the back nine and beyond.
