Well-rounded golfers must master a variety of skills, including driving, reverse-putting, and suppressing the part of the brain that associates high scores with victory. Chip away at preconceived notions with today’s Groupon to Home On The Range in Dripping Springs. Choose from the following options:
- For $9, you get two medium buckets of practice balls (an $18 value).
- For $12, you get two large buckets of practice balls (a $24 value).
- For $10, you get $20 worth of club regripping services.
Quality range balls burst from the face of swinging clubs at Home On The Range’s expansive, covered driving range. Medium or large buckets brim with 75 or 110 practice balls, which subject themselves to swing experiments while their bucket buddies daydream about being monkeys in a barrel. Bold letters stretch across the paneling above the hitting stalls to replicate a frontier-style façade, and the range eschews conventional flagsticks in favor of unique targets, including a life-size statue of a brown Texas longhorn and a rundown school bus that delivers a satisfying thwack when struck with a well-aimed drive or T-shirt cannon blast. Alternatively, players can refurbish slippery putters, wedges, irons, woods, or weathervanes with professional regripping services ($3/club, not including the price of the grip).
