Like all sports, golf prowess requires years of practice, stern mental dedication, and a mysterious yet inspirational caddie that appears when it seems all hope is lost. Harness your game on your own terms with today’s Groupon: for $90, you get two one-hour lessons and two rounds of nine-hole golf at Copper Hill Golf Club in East Granby (up to a $182 total value). Tee times included in this deal are not available before noon on Sundays.
Novice and expert links-lovers will don their best plaids on sight of this nine-hole jewel nestled in the New England countryside. The par 36 course debuted in 1955 and was recently renovated under new management to ensure enduring challenges for two nine-hole rounds (up to a $32 value), such as ball-gulping water hazards, bunkers, and spontaneously combusting garden gnomes. Beginners or brush-uppers can prepare for play with two custom one-hour lessons from PGA pro Pat McKenney, tackling issues according to trainee preferences (up to a $150 value). Techno-analysis by the V1 Pro captures every correctable quirk, qualm, and question on video for breakdown, analysis, and emotional counseling. Training addresses common and uncommon issues for chipping, putting, pitching, and full swings, as well as wardrobe selection and questionable corn-chip tee choices.
The pro shop, managed by PGA pro and course co-owner Paul Banks, luxuriates tee trollers with equipment, apparel, and accessories from the top names in golf. Players can energize before or after their round with a variety of sandwiches, burgers, and daily specials from the bar and grill, all intended to eliminate hunger handicaps.
Copper Hill Golf Club's rates fluctuate throughout the week. Plan ahead to get the most out of your Groupon.
Copper Hill Golf Club
The nine-hole course at Copper Hill Golf Club is designed to welcome beginners while still challenging advanced golfers, an egalitarian approach that earned it the 2012 Walter Lowell Award for Public Service from the Connecticut Section PGA. Having founded the Golf Academy in 1994 and taken full control of the club in 2010, two-decade PGA pro Paul Banks runs the outfit as a welcoming environment where golfers can both enjoy the game and improve. In line with its emphasis on introducing the game to new players, Copper Hill hosts an extensive youth program, training up duffers as young as 5. Its extensive practice area comprises a 3,500-square-foot pitching and chipping green along with a four-tier driving range, where up to 32 club swingers can hone drives, approaches, and putter-juggling acts on grass tees.
