Greg Baresel is a great teacher of golf -- easy to understand, very open and extremely personable. An easy person to learn from, he doesn't over-complicate things and gives solid, practical advice and direction in regards to swing analysis and tweaking mechanics.

What You'll Get

Long ago, Scottish polo players longed for a game in which they could explore scenic terrain, ride an obedient mechanical horse, and wear more courageously plaid knickers. Master their subsequent invention with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a one-hour private golf lesson with Greg Baresel of Precision Driven at AthletiCo Golf Performance Center in Oak Brook (a $90 value).

With more than 2,500 lessons under his bogey-banishing belt, Greg Baresel brings years of experience instructing top college golfers and former pro athletes to the teaching tee. Greg's clients work to develop a consistent swing by mastering golf fundamentals such as grip, stance, alignment, and the ability to measure wind speed by studying a tuft of the caddy's hair. A relaxed learning environment and custom-tailored lessons make it easy for golfers of any ability to improve. Throughout the one-hour lesson, Greg utilizes computerized swing-analyzing equipment to capture the nuances of each player's stroke. Golfers can also view their swings firsthand, experiencing out-of-body episodes with the help of strategically placed video cameras.

AthletiCo's indoor golf center spans 10,000 square feet and shields club wielders from the summer heat and the hum of chatty mosquitoes. Inside, clients can fine-tune strokes on putting greens and short-game terrain, tee off from one of five hitting bays, or enlist the help of golf-savvy software in the swing evaluation lab.

About Marengo Ridge Golf Club

Marengo Ridge Golf Club, which began as a modest nine-hole course, endured a 25-year gap before taking full advantage of the surrounding landscape's diverse terrain and expanding into a sprawling 18-hole course. Course architect William James Spear broke ground on the front nine in 1963, designating a large, renovated cow barn as the first clubhouse and cleaving nine holes through densely wooded hills. This layout proved sufficient until a late ‘80s spike in the local caddy population—and business boom—made the addition of a back nine desirable. Construction began in 1988 and, two years later, a new nine-hole track opened for play, presenting golfers with a profound shift in scenery, as this layout was built on an expanse of open farmland. The old clubhouse lasted for three more years, but the awkward location and argyle-wearing cattle called for the construction of a new clubhouse to match the new 18-hole golf club.

Today, golfers enjoy the diverse layout of the 18-hole course from the first hole, the longest par 4 on the course, to the last, a par 5 severe dogleg right. Water enters play on nine holes, including on the first six, creating the potential for an extending water break for thirsty golf carts.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Total length of 6,654 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 72.5 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 129 from the back tees
  • Four sets of tees per hole
