Golf balls are like marble statues in a museum: they're white, they're meticulously crafted, and it's satisfying to hit them with metal clubs. Improve your ball bludgeoning with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a 40-minute golf lesson at Billy D's Golf Center (a $94.50 value, including GST).
The Canadian Professional Golfers' Association–certified golf instructors at Billy D's Golf Center mould swings and help aspiring golfers finesse the finer points of their game at a fully equipped facility encompassing 52 outdoor hitting stalls and grassy areas. In an enclosed four-bay teaching area, golf pros Daryl Patrick, who competed in the Malaysian PGA Tour, and Luke McKenzie, winner of the 2005 Ontario Spring Open, instruct pupils on mending hooks, saving slices, and willing balls into holes with elaborate tribal spells. Clubs whack and balls fly down 300 yards of lush green fairway, and an artificial putting green strengthens golfers' short game. Fatigued golfers and battered golf balls recoup in a 1,000-square-foot clubhouse, where golf pros fit and repair clubs and cooks serve up food that visitors can enjoy with a side of tree-filled scenery.
