Like performing dental work with a ballpoint pen or greeting your father-in-law, golf requires a steady hand and a wealth of patience. Make sure you have the right skills for the job with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get $60 toward any class or clinic at Golf Body Performance Center on Tree Court Industrial Boulevard.
Led by Helen Kurtin, 2007's LPGA Midwest Section Teacher of the Year, the stalwart staff at Golf Body Performance Center advise golfers from amateurs to aces with a holistic approach that turns baby shots into bold birdies. Precocious caddies flourish under private instruction from co-owner Kurtin, available as 30-minute ($65), 45-minute ($95) and one-hour sessions ($125). Blade runners and their BFFs can stay locked at the hip with two-student semiprivate lessons with Ms. Kurtin, which run for 45 minutes ($120) or one hour ($150). For those who enjoy learning while doing, on-course playing lessons amply fill the boot ($100 plus course fees). Mental training sessions teach concentration under pressure, so that even in the face of fury golfers play with a stoicism to rival the Royal Guard ($169).
