Much like confronting a former bully at a high-school reunion, playing golf requires an efficient swing and at least three friends to cheer you on. Take a stand against a shank-producing stroke with today's Groupon: for $9, you get two large buckets of range balls at Diamondback Golf Club (an $18 value).
Diamondback Golf Club's 12-acre practice facility packs a wallop of club-based fun, including a full driving range, sizable putting green, and sand-flanked pitching area. Two brimming pails of dimpled orbs savor escapes from mini golf's frightening clowns as guests launch their contents across 75,000 square feet of teeing area. After fine-tuning their long game, golfers can feel free to tap around a 10,000-square-foot putting green to hone precision cup-seeking skills. To cap off a day of boosting golf bona fides or to presage a marvelous on-course performance, visiting club wielders can knock balls over groomed sand traps and onto a chipping green to prevent confused sea turtles from sneaking up and burying unhatched golf balls.
