Golf lessons help players maintain good form in inclement weather, a life-skill that will reward them when crossing stormy seas in a dinghy or wrestling in the Thunderdome. Overcome the elements with today’s Groupon: for $79, you get four half-hour one-on-one lessons from Gary Bos Golf Academy (a $156 value). Available outdoor lesson locations in the warm months include Peninsula Lakes Golf Club in Fenwick, and Lochness Links Golf Course and Sparrow Lakes Golf Clubs in Welland; lessons take place year-round at Westport Golf Practice & Training Facility in St. Catharines.
Profiled on GolfScene, Canadian Professional Golfers' Association pro Gary Bos enhances players' fairway functionality through one-on-one instruction. During the half-hour lessons, linksmen learn score-shaving tactics and celebratory dances to sharpen any area of their game, from gaining distance on drives to finessing deceptive short shots. Summertime lets club-swingers learn on one of several courses, and in the winter, the Westport Golf facility enshrouds a heated hitting area for players so clubs don’t shatter in the chill air. Online tips provide ongoing tutelage, and those interested in further training can check out the academy’s clinics and programs tailored specifically to men or women.
