The Scots developed golf to irk common loch pests, like mer-rats, locharoaches, and Nessie, who to this day rarely surfaces for fear of being beaned by a well-aimed ball. Brush up your monster-vexing skills with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a five visit pass, good for all-day driving-range access and unlimited balls, at The Range at Leon Springs in Boerne (a $75 value).
The rolling emerald acres of this golfing Valhalla provide fairway-farers with a sweeping spread of short- and long-range training areas to hone ball-launching skills. Club collectors armed with day-pass punch cards can crush unlimited edifices of dimpled spheres from the 40,000-square-foot tee line of zoysia grass without risk of waiting behind sloth-paced practice sessions. Though merchandise and instruction are not covered by the value of this Groupon, guests can visit the pro shop between swings to stock up on a variety of golfing shirts, grip-enhancing gloves, and accuracy-boosting Egyptian artifacts, or bolster their individual practice with a lesson from one of the facility's PGA professionals.
