The dimples on a golf ball help it fly farther with greater accuracy, just as the dimples on a baby help it steal candy from gullible strangers. Find your adorably sporty sweet spots with today's Groupon for a small-group golf lesson with Dr. Jerry Elwell at Boothbay Country Club's new golf academy, located in Boothbay. Choose from the following options:
- For $45, you get a one-hour group golf lesson ($125 value).
- For $85, you get an 18-hole round of golf with cart rental and a one-hour group golf lesson (up to a $220 total value).
A seasoned PGA instructor, Dr. Jerry Elwell tweaks swings and short games for professional golfers—including Ernie Els and John Daly—and aspiring club swingers alike. Enlist in Dr. Elwell's green-faring advice during a 60-minute lesson with up to four other golfers, which can be scheduled Monday–Saturday. Each session incorporates principles of position and rhythm, two essential elements for timing the speed, strength, and saxophone-solo-duration of a swing. With Dr. Elwell’s instruction, golf enthusiasts can improve consistency, reduce handicaps, and hit cleaner, crisper shots down the fairway. When instruction concludes, players will have made strides toward synchronizing their swings, making solid ball contact and controlling shots without having to use heat-seeking golf balls.
Those choosing today's second option can then test their new and improved games with a round on the masterfully manicured grounds of Boothbay Country Club, which greets golfers with 18 holes spanning 6,356 yards of prodigious pines and rolling hills. Golfers are not required to redeem their round on the same day as their lesson.
