What You'll Get
Golf is necessary to keep dimpled, white balls off the streets and occupied in a healthy, social activity. Mentor a young sphere with today's Groupon to Champion Hills Country Club in Victor. Choose between the following options:
- For $62, you get a package of five golf passes (a $125 value).
- For $30, you get a 3-D swing analysis with Darlene Sommer (a $75 value).
Both of today's options boast numerous chances to swing into success. The five-pass package grants green access for up to five challengers at Champion Hills Country Club. The verdant, 200-acre course showcases a smaller cottage-style design with nine holes that emphasize unique architecture, reward strategic thinking, yet remain approachable to all skill levels. Wedge-wielders take to the tee on holes sporting par-expectations of three and four strokes, with the looming, par-five seventh hole destined to make pros and ams alike beg for mulligans. Pre- and post-swinging, guests can swing through and satiate their hunger at the elegant, auburn-hued dining room and full-service bar, accessible as part of the package.
With 23 years of golf-instruction experience under her belt, head instructor Darlene Sommer turns greenhorn golfers into maestros of the greens with a combination of technology and careful instruction. Using video cameras and a 3-D motion-capture system, Sommer collects mountains of crucial data points, pores over the minutiae of stances and swings, examines childhood art projects, and addresses swing flaws with real-time feedback. The lesson, which lasts up to 45 minutes, helps improve swing mechanics and consistency, and it sufficiently stokes muscle memory so newfound club-swinging chops won't be forgotten by morning. To quickly brush up on pointers and cover up holes in drywall, a printout of the computer data will be available after the session.
