The dimples on a golf ball help it fly farther with greater accuracy, just like the dimples on a baby help it steal candy from gullible strangers. Find your adorably sporty sweet spots with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a three-hour golf-simulator session for up to four people and a $10 food and drink voucher at LakeShore Links Indoor Golf (a $145 value).
LakeShore Links solves the bothersome issues of weather and travel by bringing some of the world's finest courses indoors in one top-notch location. The sleek, 8,000-square-foot facility boats nine simulators, each named after a champion golfer, such as the Palmer, the Watson, and the Socrates. While wall-sized high-definition screens display every grass blade of legendary courses such as Bay Hill and Pinehurst, swing-analysis cameras allow champs to analyze the nuances of their swings. Virtual rounds also boast the ever-popular instant mulligan feature, which allows players, with the simple press of a button, to replay their previous shot or give law school another try.
Unlike the burdensome lack of grub along the fairways of corporeal golf courses, LakeShore Links ensures its visiting wedge whackers are well fed, with birdie-rewarding fare such as chicken wings ($10/lb.), deli sandwiches ($10), and better-than-par sweet-potato fries ($6).
