Golfers try to complete rounds in the fewest strokes, much like how pitchers attempt to finish an inning with the fewest pitches and thoroughbreds try to finish the Kentucky Derby with the fewest personal fouls. Improve green-finding abilities with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a complete Dartfish video golf-swing analysis (a $100 value) or 2.5 hours inside a golf simulator (a $100 value) at CityGolf. Today’s Groupon is valid at CityGolf's Walpole, Airport, and Boston locations, but the golf simulator is only available at the Boston location. All equipment is included.
CityGolf compiles a variety of advanced indoor golf technology under one roof to help seasoned and first-time par pursuers hone their skills. Instructors perform an advanced dissection of golfers’ games during one-hour golf-swing training sessions using data from Dartfish video-analysis software. The nuances of your stroke will be captured on film and broken down using a series of screenshots and slow-motion replays. Aside from the digital analysis, the golf pro offers immediate feedback on hip placement or follow-through and gentle applause after a nicely cut shot. A video of the session will be uploaded online so clients can study their swing at home or edit themselves into scenes from Tin Cup.
Ball whackers confident in their form can opt for digitized rounds on replicas of world-class courses with CityGolf's Full Swing Golf simulators at the Boston location. Golfers tee up in front of large screens projecting holes from renowned links, including St. Andrews Old Course and Pebble Beach, that were previously only accessible through long flights, costly greens fees, and ancient country-club passwords guarded by hidden sects of the Knights Templar.
Though CityGolf sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

A virtual-reality simulator recreates the environments of more than 30 legendary courses, and a 280-square-foot putting green challengers players' ability to read breaking greens.
