Off the course, relentlessly practicing golfers keep hand-eye coordination razor-sharp by juggling houseplants and catching lobbed contact lenses in their eyes. Develop an eye-catching swing with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get a one-hour golf lesson and swing analysis with PGA pro Gary Robinson at Cedar Creek Sports Center, located in Mount Juliet (an $80 value).
A five-time Tennessee PGA Player of the Year, Gary Robinson feeds knowledge-hungry golfers with a wealth of sphere-whacking wisdom to improve swings and scores. The one-hour lesson will cover important shot factors such as lie evaluation, club face angle at impact, and windmill avoidance. Additionally, Robinson uses his keen eye for swing intricacies to evaluate each student’s grip, setup, and swing path. Golfing apprentices need only bring their clubs and well-matched argyle outfits, as Cedar Creek Sports Center provides all range balls for the lesson.
Lessons take place in the teaching and club-fitting facility on the 12-acre driving range, which features grass-only hitting tees as well as a putting green and bunker for short-game practice.
Cedar Creek Sports Center
Families and friends romp in playful competition through Cedar Creek Sports Center's 16.5 acres of activities. Two 18-hole putt-putt courses give miniature linksmen room to roam, and the 12-acre driving range provides a scenic exile for underperforming golf balls. Karts roar around the hairpin turns and speedy straightaways of the 1,100-foot go-kart track and bumper boats build up ramming speed while spraying each other with aqua artillery. Prepare for invasions of giant locusts by swatting away at one of 10 fully automatic ABC pitching machines, which hurtle softballs or baseballs at a choice of sphere-slinging speeds.
Cedar Creek Sports Center helps sportsmen find their stride on the fairways or between the base-paths with baseball and golf lessons. At the indoor game room, guests can determine who has the better hand-eye-coordination in air hockey or hoop shot stations, or settle longstanding arguments about who has a brighter career path as a heavy machine operator while using a tiny crane to snatch prizes.
