Before golf was invented, grassy pastures were viewed as the exclusive territory of roaming sheep, herds of cattle, and overzealous Civil War re-enactors. Celebrate turf's competitive utility with today's Groupon: for $6, you get a large bucket of golf balls (approximately 125 per bucket) at Indian Head Golf Park in Kings Park (a $12 value).
Open seven days a week, Indian Head Golf Park introduces clubbers to a pristine driving range ideal for practicing strokes and rubbing elbows with like-minded link lovers. Sluggers may haul brimming buckets out to a designated tee station anytime between 8 a.m. and 11 p.m., walloping their dimpled spheres to majestic heights at noon or night thanks to the range's ample lighting, which radiates from tree-perched fixtures and an onsite bat signal. Weekend walk spoilers can refuel after a morning of peppering the greens with well-struck shots by taking advantage of the free continental breakfast offered every Saturday and Sunday morning.
Indian Head Golf Park
Practice is the foundation of golf. Without it, the game can be frustrating, eventually sending golfers' into a fragile state of agitation. Knowing how important practice is, Indian Head Golf Park's instructors and staff focus their efforts on helping golfers improve their game. At the park's well-lit driving range, staff members keep golfers well stocked with buckets of range balls to blow off steam as they aim for the ball-retriever cart. Instructor Bob Greenstein works with students during private lessons to fine-tune their swings, and he hosts junior golf camps during summer to introduce youngsters to the game.
