Like suntans and the ability to throw knives at apples on top of totem poles, golf skills disappear if you don't keep working at them. Keep the magic alive with today's Groupon: for $10, you get two large buckets of balls at the John Wells Golf Center driving range in North Hollywood (a $20 value). John Wells Golf Center driving range offers 60 spacious, canopy-covered stalls stacked abreast in front of more than 260 yards of unbridled landingscape. For long and short practice, the range is dotted by a variety of targets and yardage markers. And in tribute to moon cheese, the range remains well lit through the evening hours and only uses spaceships to collect rogue range balls.
Eight Yahoo! Locals give John Wells Golf Center driving range a 4.5-star rating:
John Wells Golf Center
John Wells Golf Center's lighted driving range offers 60 spacious, canopy-covered hitting stalls that look out onto a range that stretches 260 yards into the distance. Yardage markers populate the field, letting players gauge the distance of each shot, and synthetic mats provide a smooth hitting surface so guests can leave their Persian rugs at home. The center offers lessons and clinics taught by a staff of five instructors anchored by Don Shauger, who trained two-time National Long Driving Champion John Marshall with methods he learned from Mike Austin, the golf renegade famous for hitting the game's longest drive ever—a 515-yard missile—at the age of 64. On select dates, the center offers free golf clinics for junior and adult beginners who purchase a bucket of range balls. Those looking to upgrade their golf gear or replace a wedge caught fraternizing with enemy irons can check into the discount pro shop, which offers name-brand apparel and equipment at as high as 50% off retail price.
