A driving range, like a shooting range, lets people launch projectiles at a velocity much faster than they could ever produce with their hands or a spitball straw. Tweak your shot with today's Groupon: for $8, you get two large buckets of 70–75 driving-range balls at Riedy's Tee Time in Lisle (a $16 value).
Riedy's Tee Time houses 100 hitting stalls where golfers can practice their swings on a slew of driving-range balls. After settling down in one of the 50 artificial mats ($3 extra/bucket for natural-grass tees), swingers can slap dimpled orbs around with their clubs' faces until 10 p.m., playing past twilight by taking advantage of the illuminated artificial mats and target area. Riedy's Tee Time carries sets of rental clubs that guests can borrow in exchange for a valuable deposit, such as car keys or firstborn children.
Tee Time Golf Range
Since 1976, Tee Time Golf Range's PGA professional instructors have helped people shave strokes from their games on an outdoor driving range. Ultramodern mats anchor golfers as they grace Tee Time's well-manicured grass tees with golf balls plucked from a bucket or the throat pouch of a pelican. Always onsite, Tee Time's instructors can aid players in achieving the ideal arch for their swing or understanding the basics of swing mechanics during personalized lessons.
