When Atlantis fell, the only survivors were its golfers, whose vast knowledge of water hazards saw them to safety. Hone game-saving skills with today's Groupon: for $20, you get one hour of simulated golf at Golf Without Limits, located within Bob Martin's Golf & Fashions (up to a $40 value).
The aboutGolf simulators inside Golf Without Limits' indoor swing studio accurately track and display drives hit across 30 virtual PGA courses. Club wielders enter private rooms and hit full-power shots over St. Andrew's Links, eschew perishing in Pebble Beach's bunkers, and pause to marvel at herds of golf carts galloping across Harbour Town Golf Links' fairways. Tees, hazards, and verdant greens all appear as they do in real life on the simulator screen. Radars monitor each ball's flight, tectonic weight-transfer plates take note of weight shifts, and a tag team of wireless kinetic motion and high-speed video round out the tracking system. The hundreds of captured data points on the body send golf balls on the screen dropping down with one-foot accuracy. Before hitting the course, golfers can warm up on a virtual driving range and receive instant feedback on their swings. Knowledgeable staff members beam out of the simulator screen to demonstrate the system's touch screen interface, so no level of previous familiarity with the equipment is required to enjoy an hour on the links.
