Golf, long ridiculed as the easiest of sports, is so childishly simple that many casual players go home feeling angry and frustrated at how quickly one can master the game. Luckily, these golfers can still savor the thrilling velocity and parabolic motion of a well-struck ball, especially with today's Groupon. For $12, you get three large buckets of driving range golf balls (a $30 value) at Northeast Golf Center.
Located in the center of San Antonio, right behind Oakwell Farms and next to Tobin Park, Northeast Golf Center boasts a 90,000-square-foot range, so you'll enjoy far fewer collisions with antique vases than you would practicing back home in your 150-square-foot antique vasitory. If you've mastered the long drive to the point that you use it to disable passing spy satellites, enjoy finessing your short game at Northeast Golf Center's two pitching and chipping areas, both of which are riddled with villainous sand traps (known offically as "rage pits"). Use them to teach yourself how to avoid and escape sand traps, as well as cut down on the frustrated outbursts that could spoil Saturday mornings and destroy business relationships. You'll have a full year to redeem your three large buckets of balls, allowing you the freedom to spread out your training and stretch out your gams between rigorous swinging sessions.
No amount of duct tape or elbow grease can remove the slice from your swing the way good old-fashioned practice can. Indulge your love for Arnold Palmers both liquid and solid at Northeast Golf Center any day of the week from 9 a.m. until dark, and feel the improvements course through your game. Whacking balls a healthy distance will also help relieve the tension of having lost your favorite putting cap.
Northeast Golf Center golfers are too busy trying to hit the driving range's golf ball picker-upper (the Zamboni of the golf course, if you will) to write reviews, but three Yahoo! Locals give the center a keen five stars:
- Hidden gem - - inexpensive buckets of good range balls, yardages and targets, level tees, and plenty of healthy turf even in the drought this summer. – appreciate it
