What You'll Get
A golf swing is like performing surgery: one clumsy slice and you have a lawsuit on your hands. Protect yourself from an extended stay in the pokey with today’s Groupon: for $55, you get a one-hour golf lesson with instructor Mark Emmons (a value of up to $110; normal rates vary according to age) at Bay Area Golf Academy, located in the San Bruno Golf Center in San Bruno.
For 15 years, Mark Emmons—a former employee of celebrity swing sorcerer Hank Haney—has helped students develop natural, pain-free swings to further their argyled course conquests. Turn your fruitless birdie hunts into legally dicey eagle safaris with 60 minutes of Mark’s golf-centric sagacity, a blend of technical knowhow and folksy wisdom that will illuminate beginners and experts alike. Each lesson is held one-on-one and incorporates the high-tech assistance of Inpractice 4View video analysis, which gives players the chance to see themselves swinging without the disorienting effects of an out-of-body experience. Lessons take place within the San Bruno Golf Center, a comprehensive practice facility that allows golfers to work on their long game with grass hitting tees, as well as refine their short game with a two-acre practice area.

Yelpers give the San Bruno Golf Center an average of four stars: > * it’s clean and the prices for buckets of balls are way reasonable. there are two levels and plenty of spaces for everyone. the short game area is pretty nice and the price for that is reasonable as well. it’s gated and pretty roomy for all your short game needs. – r y. > * Hidden gem tucked away behind a fence of trees in San Bruno. This location is quiet, serene, and it has an isolated feel to it… almost like miles away from the chaotic city life. – Rebecca L.
