Golf is considered a gentleman's game due to its emphasis on proper etiquette, color-coordinated outfits, and the removal of all brass knuckles and inflatable billy clubs before competition. Observe the height of sportsmanship with today's Groupon: for $25, you get four large buckets of balls at Leo J. Martin Golf Course in Weston (a $52 value).
The Leo J. Martin Golf Course's tree-lined, close-cropped grass teems with dimpled orbs struck, sliced, and swatted from 30 practice bays. New mats occupy each bay, and new golf balls by the bucketful wait to be rocketed off their elevated tees and into the open mouths of resin-hungry hawks circling above. Eastward-facing bays ensure morning players can forgo sunglasses, though nothing can muffle the cruel remarks the sun makes behind their backs. Practicing players can rent drivers and irons from the clubhouse for no cost.
Leo J. Martin Golf Range
The high-pitched thwacks of flush drives pierce the air from the elevated hitting bays that encompass Leo J. Martin Golf Course's driving range, inspiring clubbers of all abilities to perfect their pendulous swings. With more than 30 hitting stalls replete with new artificial mats, the expansive range facilitates practice shots with all clubs or overenthusiastic legs as guests soak in sweeping views of the tree-lined New England countryside. The range faces due east, so golfers won't have to reckon with the setting sun as they follow soaring shots through the stratosphere. A selection of new and used clubs anchors the facility's fully stocked pro shop, providing pristine wares to accompany swings fine-tuned at the range or during lessons. The practice area shares grounds with the Leo J. Martin Memorial Golf Course, a 6,320-yard course that opens its grassy passageways to all aspiring pin hunters.
