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 golfing or instruction at one of MAN Golf Management's three courses or facilities. Choose from the following options:
- For $40, you get 18 holes of golf and a cart for two people at Coffin Golf Club (up to an $84 value).
- For $35, you get 18 holes of golf and a cart for two people at Riverside Golf Course (up to a $70 value).
- For $65, you get two private lessons at Riverside Golf Academy (up to a $130 value).
Located only minutes away from the center of downtown Indianapolis, Coffin Golf Club's challenging public greens inspire golfers of all skill levels to sharpen their short and long games. The course was originally designed in 1931, and its renovated, par-72 incarnation stretches 6,715 yards from tip to tip. Trek slightly north and embrace more than a century of history at Riverside Golf Course, which sharks its way alongside the White River's banks with Greg Norman-like finesse. As golfers navigate the small greens of the course's par-3 holes, they'll get to dodge water hazards and shambling, feral biohazards.
Those who would rather spruce up swing mechanics or extend driving distance can head to the acclaimed Riverside Golf Academy located on-site for a duet of private lessons. PGA member Mike O'Toole and his team of golf professionals help novice and seasoned swingers target weak points, fine-tune style, and learn how to hit the ball without triggering its thermal detonator. Take advantage of Riverside's two-camera V1 video-analysis, with a link to access your film debut from home. The PGA-recognized practice range is a haven for indoor and outdoor golf enthusiasts, sporting 20 covered hitting stalls, 18 outdoor hitting mats, chipping and practice greens, and two practice bunkers.
The best values apply during the regular season, which begins sometime in April (depending on weather conditions).
MAN Golf Management
MAN Golf Management’s facilities give players myriad ways to curb their golf cravings. Coffin Golf Club and Riverside Golf Course invite guests to play through more than 6,200 yards of golf apiece, with three to four tees per hole and prevailing winds that can send shots sailing into sand bunkers or water hazards. Meanwhile, the Riverside Golf Academy lets players practice on 16 covered hitting stalls, 18 outdoor hitting mats, two grass chipping practice greens, and one indoor putting green. There, instructors also host private lessons to help golfers sharpen their swings without replacing their drivers with lumberjack axes.
