Like a barroom brawl between opposing chess teams, a game of golf is enhanced by endurance, a club, and a pair of checked pants. Raise your club in victory with today's Groupon: for $15, you get two nine-hole rounds of golf (up to a $22 value), two medium buckets of balls (up to a $16 value), and two soft drinks (a $4 value) at Family Golf & Learning Center on Tree Court Industrial Boulevard (up to a $42 total value).
Family Golf Center heartens golf habitués year-round with its varied par 3 course, miniature golf course, and Best Driving Range, according to the Riverfront Times in 2007. Blast perfect spheres in overhead clouds with a close friend or childhood rival on Family Golf Center's heated, two-level driving range stocked with top-quality mats and mowed zoysia tees. With shoulder joints well-loosened, golfers can set out on a tranquil jaunt along Family Golf Center's well-manicured fairways, thwacking dimpled orbs from lush, grassy tees over towering oaks and placid creeks. Postgame sodas await players in Family Golf Center's snack center, where they can settle close scores by putting spare balls into freshly drained cups.
Family Golf & Learning Center
Named St. Louis’s Best Driving Range by the Riverfront Times in 2007, Family Golf & Learning Center earns praise as an encouraging environment in which golfers of all levels can hone their games. The lighted range boosts golfers with a second story of hitting stations stacked on top of the first that offers a bird’s-eye view, if that bird is sitting on the head of a giraffe. The range also features both real zoysia-grass tees as well as artificial-turf tees, and it stays open year-round thanks to heaters that prevent golf clubs’ handles from developing frostbite.
Once thoroughly limbered up, golfers can tee off on the par 3 course, where a maximum hole length of 160 yards allows for practice with short strokes and putting. Should self-improvement reach a plateau, the center’s instructors stand ready to help players make further strides through onsite lessons.
Course at a Glance:
- Nine-hole, par 27 course
- Total length of 1,124 yards from the back tees
