Golf club designers often consult aerospace engineers to fulfill dreams of experimental-alloy drivers and converting the solar system into a nine-hole executive course. Take your game to the next frontier with today’s Groupon: for $179, you get a golf package at Riverside Golf Course in Old Hickory (up to a $970 total value). The pass includes the following:
- 10 small-group golf lessons (a $75 value each)
- 10 18-hole rounds of golf at Riverside’s Farm Lakes course (up to a $22 value each); players must pay a mandatory $9 cart fee before each round
Riverside Golf Course’s 18-hole, par 70 course stretches across 6,300 yards of scenic, bermuda-grass fairways and bent-grass greens. Players can bolster their orb-blasting technique before hitting the links with a regimen of 10 golf clinics, where classes no larger than 10 pupils learn how to steadfastly drive, pitch, and shot-put balls from one of Riverside’s resident aces. Swing-honing sessions will pay dividends on the course, where subtly sloped greens reward those who can land approach shots close to the pin, as water hazards loom ominously at the edges of nine holes. Players loop the emerald links astride a peppy golf cart, which crosses the course more efficiently than piggybacking caddies. Players should call ahead to reserve both the tee times and clinics, and the pass is valid through 2012.
Riverside Golf Course’s rates fluctuate throughout the day and week.
