To gain entry into the most prestigious universities and country clubs, one must demonstrate a mastery of refined pursuits such as golf, rowing, and swallowing a bow tie whole. Step onto the road to cultivation with today's Groupon: for $37, you get a private, one-hour adult golf lesson and swing analysis (a $75 value) at World of Golf in Florence.
Springing forth from a $4.8 million renovation, World of Golf supplements its cutting-edge technology with experienced instructors to train golfers of all levels. PGA Master Professional Ralph Landrum sharpens the games of students 18 and older in a private, indoor instruction room that opens to the outdoor range through a door large enough to accommodate driving lessons and babies on monster trucks. A four-camera V1 digital coaching system assesses students' full swings before they move to refining specific areas of their games. Players looking to improve their putting skills can get hooked up to the SAM PuttLab system, which employs a wireless sensor to monitor mini moves and paint graphic images of stroke weaknesses, strengths, and strong jaws. Burgeoning masters of the game eager to ply their new skills can follow their lesson with a roundabout through World of Golf's executive 18-hole golf course (not included with this Groupon).
Though World of Golf sometimes offers discounts online to members, this Groupon still is the best deal available.

World of Golf
Led by _Golf Range_’s Top 50 Golf Instructor Ralph Landrum, World of Golf’s staff of game-improvement gurus help players lower their golf scores with an array of golf-related activities. Private lessons conducted inside a climate-controlled swing room allow students to launch golf balls out onto the range while four cameras capture bad habits such as flat takeaways or saying “um” too much during their follow-through. Afterward, players can use their instructor’s pointers to build muscle memory on the rest of the complex’s practice facilities, which include an outdoor range with 24 mat tees and two sets of grass tees, indoor hitting nets with eight stalls, and an indoor putting and chipping green.
As soon as golfers feel they’ve practiced enough, they put their newfound knowledge to the test on the executive 18-hole golf course, with 14 par 3s and four par 4s, or the miniature golf course. When weather renders either course unplayable, thwackers move indoors to the golf simulator, which recreates the look and feel of more than 50 courses or a hodgepodge of 18 famous holes but without the extremely long between-hole travel times. World of Golf keeps a busy schedule of lessons, classes, and leagues, all of which can be found on the calendar.
