What You'll Get
In golf, swinging too violently will rip open the fabric of the universe, requiring already overworked caddies to sew in a quantum patch. Give theoretical physicists turned club toters the break they deserve with today’s Groupon: for $80, you get two individual golf lessons from PGA-certified professional golf instructor R. Kedric Perkins Jr. at Hillview Country Club in Franklin (a $160 value).
For more than 15 years, PGA-certified instructor R. Kedric Perkins Jr. has trained golfers of all skill levels in the subtle art of effective long-distance ball conveyance at the Hillview Country Club. Perkins promotes a simple pedagogy that focuses on improving the client’s natural swing, refining it to perfection without forcing them to adopt a form that is foreign to them. After launching each dimpled ball skyward over the range during the one-hour sessions, the customer receives feedback from Perkins to mitigate unnecessary energy expenditure and to dispel habits of juggling the ball like a hacky sack. The Hillview Country Club provides a sweeping, historic context for Perkins' intensive teaching. Open since 1926, the club hosts IGA events, operates a complex of well-appointed facilities, and works to promote awareness of the color green by tending to the championship-level golf course.

About Hillview Country Club
Opening its first fairways in 1926, Hillview Country Club prides itself on a charming course that envelops golfers in an emerald ecosystem replete with L93 bentgrass fairways and smooth, fast-moving greens. Players must contend with tree lines along the fairways and several water hazards as they corral golf balls over the 6,495-yard Robert Simmons design. Before a round, players can warm up at the practice facilities, which include a driving range with natural-grass hitting stations and a short-game area. The chipping green allows for approaches from up to 75 yards away, precisely the distance of Jack Nicklaus’s bathroom putting green.
