What You'll Get
Much like confronting a former bully at a high-school reunion, playing golf requires an efficient swing and at least three friends to cheer you on. Take a stand against a shank-producing stroke with today's Groupon: for $59, you get a 90-minute golf lesson from GolfRite Performance Center at its newest location, Southborough Golf Practice & Learning Center (a $150 value).
Taught by professional instructors and former PGA Tour player and GolfRite owner Skip Guss, GolfRite Performance Center's lessons hone tee-off student talents for every skill level. Over the course of the 90-minute lesson, groups of four to six pupils are guided by their swing sensei in the ancient arts of chipping, pitching, and putting. A video swing analysis captures misbehaving limbs in the drive-ruining act, and can be later used to blackmail them into cooperation. Lessons are held at Southborough Golf Practice & Learning Center, making use of its ample driving bays and short game range. Each student must provide his or her own equipment.

About GolfRite Performance Center
In a golf career that spans more than three decades, Skip Guss has trained under World Golf Hall of Famer Sam Snead, CBS Golf Analyst Peter Kostis, and Jack Grout, a golf legend who coached Jack Nicklaus to 73 PGA Tour wins. The tools and techniques gleaned from this group of golf intelligentsia led Skip to considerable success on the course, fueling victories in more than 30 pro-golf tournaments and a stint as a PGA Tour contender from 1977–1978. These skills continue to drive his passion for the game at GolfRite Performance Center, where Skip combines his pin-hunting wisdom with modern technology to enhance his students' skills and bionic putter arms.
From Southborough Golf Practice & Learning Center, Skip and his team of instructors watch as golfers drive balls into a 300-yard driving range—which facilitates practice day and night—while video analysis helps the pros dissect swings without having to ask clients to swing in slow-motion. In addition, the Center's custom club-fitting equipment can pair golfers with their crooked-stick counterpart based on body dimensions, swing mechanics, and penchant for chewing fairway grass.
