Mark Twain once called golf a good walk spoiled, due to the then-popular misconception that if you left a beautiful golf course out in the sun, it would fester and burst. Chip away at his ignorance with this Groupon.

A former Division I golfer at Loyola Marymount University and a professional instructor since 1994, Craig Snyder melds years of experience with high-tech teaching aids to help golfers improve their skill sets. During lessons held on the grass tee boxes of the Metropolitan Links driving range, Craig breaks down swings, offering corrective advice to improve swing mechanics. Meanwhile, a high-speed camera captures the student’s swing at 400 frames per second, allowing for easy review. A natural southpaw who happens to play right-handed, Craig is equally adept at teaching right- and left-handers.

Metropolitan Golf Links

Golf legends Johnny Miller and Fred Bliss teamed up to design the course at Metropolitan Golf Links, and were rewarded with numerous accolades, such as the 2010 ELGA Chapter Award for Public Facilities from the GCSA of Northern California and Golf Digest. To achieve their links-style vision, the golf gurus incorporated the natural contours of the land and covered the terrain with omnipresent sand traps and modern turf hybrids. The result whisks golfers around a labyrinthine layout complete with straightaways, doglegs, and double doglegs, each made more difficult by heavy breezes that blow in from San Francisco Bay, which can disrupt shots and ground scorecard paper airplanes.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Total length of 6,959 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 73.8 from the back tees
