Who said golf was a rich man's game? We didn't. It was a filthy, lying cyber-bully. Besides, there is affordable golf fun to be had at The Golf Club at Chelsea Piers, and with today's Groupon golf is dirt cheap!
Today $35 gets you a Golf 101 group lesson from an expert instructor and $20 worth of practice balls for the driving range at The Golf Club at Chelsea Piers. That’s 56% off the regular $80 price. Located at Pier 59 on 23rd St. and the Hudson, the calming effect of the nearby water is the perfect counterbalance to the rage ignited by shanked drives.
The Golf Club at Chelsea Piers is Manhattan's only year-round outdoor golf academy and driving range. You’ll enjoy its state-of-the-art facilities, including full-swing simulators where you can play 51 different championship courses and a driving range with heated, weather-protected stalls, a fully automatic ball transport and tee-up system, and a 200-yard net-enclosed artificial turf fairway.
Golf 101 is a 90-minute group lesson divided into 60 minutes of classroom instruction, followed by 30 minutes of hitting with a golf pro. The class is designed to help beginners learn golf fundamentals, but it’s also a great way to reacquaint yourself with the game if you haven't played lately. Choose from the list of Groupon-dedicated class times and sign up ahead of time to learn how to play the game, sharpen your swing, or master the preferred way to talk to your golf ball: “Get on the green or I will banish you to the dark place.” Don't forget your Groupon includes a $20 ball card redeemable at the driving range at any time.

- “…this is a great place to learn your swing and practice driving the ball. The instructors are very good at explaining the game and techniques, but what I like most of all is the environment there. Laid-back and fun, I can ask any silly question or miss my swing 10 times and it's all good.” – Demitasse E., Yelp
- “The service was phenomenal and the setting along the Hudson River is difficult to top!” – ptcollins123, Citysearch
- “1) Hitting balls on a Hudson river pier. 2) At the swankiest driving range I've been to that isn't part of a course. 3) Delivered balls via the auto tee system, which is pretty sweet.” – Keith B, Yelp
The Golf Club at Chelsea Piers
As part of the Chelsea Piers Sports & Entertainment Complex, located at the historic Chelsea Piers, the Golf Club perches over the same port that once welcomed ships into New York City. Now, golfers tee up in the driving range's 52 heated and weather-protected stalls, which overlook the glinting waters of the Hudson River. Automatic tee-up systems position balls for launch across the 200-yard, net-enclosed fairway. A putting green allows patrons to improve their short game, and two Full Swing simulators encourage them to take hacks in virtual environs, transporting them to famous courses across the country or fifth-grade birthday parties where they missed the piñata.
Children and adults alike can enlist in Golf Club at Chelsea Piers’ classes, which stratify students by experience level. The coaching staff includes PGA and LPGA professionals, and sessions take place in a 2,000-square-foot teaching academy.
