Before driving ranges, practice-seeking golfers would drape themselves in bubble wrap and tee up inside a squash court. Swing away in a ricochet-free environment with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get one month of unlimited driving range usage (a $100 value) at DA’s Golf Learning Center in Plano.
The driving range at DA’s Golf Learning Center sports more than 50 hitting stations—including 22 covered tees—each nestled on a lush plot of natural grass. Armed with a bottomless bucket of globular whackables, practice putters can shore up their short game, whittle wobbly wood strokes into steady drives, and prove that two balls hit in the exact same place trigger a wormhole to 15th-century Scotland. DA’s replenishes its range reservoirs annually with 60,000 high-quality golf balls, ensuring that every player is met with a cute, dimple-cheeked golf aid. Today’s deal also grants access to a practice putting green, two pitching greens, three greenside bunkers, and one fairway bunker.
Spring Creek Golf Learning Center
At Spring Creek Golf Learning Center, there's a noticeable emphasis on quality. For instance, the facility keeps its turf in pristine condition, and every year, it receives a shipment of 60,000 new range balls right after they've been laid by PGA-approved chickens. Visitors can take note of this attention to detail while practicing in Spring Creek's various areas, including the 10,000-square-foot putting green and a driving range with more than 50 grass hitting stations. The center's staff, meanwhile, relies on more than a century's worth of combined experience while teaching lessons, clinics, and manning the fully stocked pro shop, complete with club-fitting services and gear from some of the industry's top manufacturers.
