$139 for Three One-Hour Private Golf Lessons ($300 Value)
During lessons, golfers hone their game under the tutelage of the club’s director of instruction, Glenn Payne, a PGA-certified teacher since 1994. Lessons include the use of unlimited driving-range balls throughout each one-hour session. Glenn cheerfully provides rental clubs for players without a serviceable set of golf clubs or fortified pool noodles.
Blue Ridge Shadows Golf Club
Framed by the rising crags of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Blue Ridge Shadows Golf Club’s 18-hole course incorporates mature hardwoods, immaculate greens, and dramatic elevation changes into a pristine layout that earned a position on _Golfweek_’s list of the Best Courses You Can Play in 2009. Cresting hilltops give way to sweeping panoramas of the natural surroundings, including a 60-foot waterfall stationed behind the 18th green that used to host Gary Player's famed cliff-diving exhibitions. A grass-tee driving range, large putting green, and short-game practice area unfurl across the mountainside terrain, helping players warm up neglected swings. Additionally, players can prepare for an upcoming round with a lesson from Blue Ridge’s staff of sage instructors or by scrutinizing the course’s splendor from the wraparound terrace of the stately clubhouse.
