A team of four resident aces, two of which are PGA instructors, fosters swing enhancements from the extensive indoor and outdoor practice facilities at Riverside Golf Academy. Club-toting cadets can smooth out unreliable techniques or wrinkled plaid knickers during private lessons, which can help fine-tune skills at the academy’s 16 covered, heated driving-range stalls, an indoor and outdoor putting green, two practice bunkers, and two practice greens for chipping and pitching.
Along with technical and strategic advice gleaned from lessons, players can enhance their game by beginning to elect the successor to clubs growing a little rusty behind the irons with a club-fitting procedure. As pupils swing their trusty wedges, woods, and hockey stick putter, TrackMan fitting technology breaks down their mechanics to determine the club, shaft, and grip perfectly suited to their unique mechanics. The certified fitters have fitting systems for all major club manufactures, including Ping, Titleist, Callaway, Taylormade, Nike, and Mizuno. Though there are no discounts on new equipment included in this Groupon, golfers depart with a guide to building the optimal club set and may also choose to peruse Riverside’s pro shop for more urgent equipment upgrades.
MAN Golf Management
MAN Golf Management’s facilities give players myriad ways to curb their golf cravings. Coffin Golf Club and Riverside Golf Course invite guests to play through more than 6,200 yards of golf apiece, with three to four tees per hole and prevailing winds that can send shots sailing into sand bunkers or water hazards. Meanwhile, the Riverside Golf Academy lets players practice on 16 covered hitting stalls, 18 outdoor hitting mats, two grass chipping practice greens, and one indoor putting green. There, instructors also host private lessons to help golfers sharpen their swings without replacing their drivers with lumberjack axes.
