Golf is considered a gentleman's game due to its emphasis on proper etiquette, color-coordinated outfits, and the removal of all brass knuckles and inflatable billy clubs before competition. Rejoice in refinement with today's Groupon: for $19, you get three jumbo buckets of range balls at Staten Island Golf Practice Center (a $45 value).
Staten Island Golf Practice Center's recently renovated digs provide orb smackers with 40 practicing stations, including some that are heated, 20 that are covered, and one acre dedicated to real-turf hitting. A 1,500-square-foot short-game area hosts a sand-trap practice bunker, and rotating artificial-grass mats tenderly cradle balls before they fly into the air to mingle with pigs. Use up three jumbo buckets of balls in one extended trip to cultivate a swing so sharp that it can break through a glass house, or spread the spheres across multiple visits to more gradually transform lazy biceps into 5-iron-shaped muscles.
