While outrunning a polar bear may be the hardest thing you’ll ever have to do outdoors, mastering golf technique is a close second. Stuff your argyles and sweater vests full of golf-game prowess with today’s Groupon to Lana Ortega Golf. For $65, you get one 45-minute private golf lesson with LPGA Class-A Master Lana Ortega (a $150 value). With 16 years of teaching experience, Ortega bravely peers into the murky depths of her clients' swings, swivels, and crooked clubs to better their technique and tweak their failed soufflé recipes.
One of Golf for Women magazine’s top 50 female instructors, Lana Ortega’s past students have included LPGA and PGA pros, college athletes, actors portraying college athletes, and amateurs of all skill levels, with a special emphasis on female golfers. Operating out of the Colorado Golf Academy, Ortega's lessons take advantage of a state-of-the-art facility equipped with indoor/outdoor heated bays for year-round instruction, a TOMI putting lab, personal video analysis with JC Video Motion Technology, tour-quality club-fitting capabilities, and a zip-line to transport golfers from one room to the next.
During your lesson, Ortega will tailor her instruction to address your personal challenges and goals. She'll videotape, analyze, and address the mechanics of your stance, swing, and putting approach. At the end of your instruction, Ortega will design a customized practice strategy to help you correct your technique and eradicate the fruit flies swarming your kitchen. Book your lesson in advance (Monday through Saturday, hours vary by amount of daylight), and brace yourself for unsettling shock when triumphant shouts replace the usual string of curses you articulate on the green.
The Denver Post and the Baltimore Examiner's Golf Examiner raved about golf instructor Lana Ortega's move to Green Valley Ranch, and the now-defunct Golf for Women named her one of the top teachers for women in the Southwest in 2007:

Lana Ortega Golf
LPGA teaching professional Lana Ortega is making her mark on the world of golf: she’s been named one of the 50 Best Women Teachers by Golf Digest, has been a contributor for Golf Tips Magazine, and contributes to a slew of other golf publications. Lana approaches lessons with the mentality that everyone has a unique swing, and she adapts her private and group lessons to help students develop a form best suited to their individual characteristics. An expert club fitter, Lana also ensures that her students are swinging with the right equipment, rather than subbing in a modified soup ladle for a sand wedge. Lana also embraces new golf technology such as video analysis and offers clinics for women.
