PGA-certified aces preside over year-round golfing activities inside CityGolf’s two studios and its modern golf-training facilities. During video swing-analysis sessions, one of CityGolf’s instructors demystify the subtle art-science of the golf swing with the help of Dartfish video-analysis technology, which reveals every ill-timed motion, errant clubface position, and argyle-clad poltergeist affecting each shot. After the lesson, CityGolf creates an online profile for each individual, complete with videos of their swing, instructor notes, and custom-tailored practice advice. Runaway swings gain further traction within the pixilated fairways of CityGolf’s Full Swing Golf simulators, where players can vanquish slices and snap-hooks in the built-in driving range or test their mettle amid the shifting winds, overgrown rough, and displaced sunbathers of 30 world-famous courses. Each simulator uses infrared radars to track the precise trajectory of each shot, providing indoor golf that emulates the feel and conditions of an outdoor round.
Though CityGolf Boston sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
