Driving ranges allot enough space for golfers to practice their swings and for lawnmower daredevils to prepare for stunt jumps in hailstorms. Provide golf-ball-size projectiles for local heroes with today's Groupon: for $13, you get three large buckets of driving-range balls at Odyssey Sweet Spot Sports Bar and Driving Range at The Odyssey Country Club in Tinley Park (a $27 value).
Odyssey Sweet Spot's driving range boasts 12 heated hitting stations connected to the lively atmosphere of Odyssey's sports bar. From the comfort of a climate-controlled hitting bay, players can send midrange shots into the blue sky or drive the ball into clouds heavy with rain, snow, or windswept divot tools. The three large buckets of range balls can be divided among as many as four different clubbers or used by one player in one swing-honing marathon session. After peppering flag-marked targets with practice balls, patrons can pop into the adjacent Sweet Spot Sports Bar, in which HD TVs broadcast ongoing sporting events and Golden Tee 2011 allows players to enjoy the game of golf while still giving misbehaving 9-irons the silent treatment. Bar fare and games are not included in this Groupon.
Odyssey Sweet Spot
Odyssey Sweet Spot lets players unwind with cold beverages, sizzling pub fare, and a lineup of crisp high-definition TVs that funnel sporting events throughout the tavern. As bartenders sling drink specials, full table-size shuffleboard and Golden Tee 2015 arcade games allow players to enjoy the game of golf while still giving misbehaving 9-irons the silent treatment. The attached 24-station driving range gives golfers plenty of space to practice their shots, with 12 heated stalls available for cooler weather.
