What You'll Get
Golf is considered a gentlemen's game because of its emphasis on proper etiquette, color-coordinated outfits, and the removal of all brass knuckles and inflatable billy clubs before competition. Enjoy a friendly bout of swinging with today's Groupon: for $85, you get two 30-minute private lessons and a club analysis with TrackMan Pro radar at Hickory Stick Golf Club in Greenwood (a $210 value).
Lead by a crew of experienced professionals, including 2009 Hall of Fame inductee Don Essig III, Hickory Stick Golf Club challenges its visitors with a rippling course of Ireland-inspired greens and rolling fairways. Choose from a trio of instructors to help fine-tune swings with two 30-minute private lessons. The trained club swinger will aid students in modifying underperforming hits while instilling proper techniques to help avoid sand traps and feral golf carts. The TrackMan Pro club analysis is designed to further enhance newfound follow-through with video-capturing radar. This visual data helps golfers see their stance in slow motion, as well as the swing trajectory with 1982 holographic overlays.
Attached to the undulating links is Hickory Stick Golf Club's 7,000-square-foot clubhouse, replete with a banquet hall, a pro shop stocked with golfing gear, and Hickory Stick Grill, which churns out game-fueling fare in the shape of golf clubs (costs not included with today's Groupon).
