What You'll Get
The dimples on a golf ball help it fly farther with greater accuracy, just as the dimples on a baby help it steal candy from gullible strangers. Find your adorably sporty sweet spots with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a series of four one-hour group golf lessons at Stone Creek Golf Club in Oregon City (a $75 value). Classes are held weekly throughout April and begin the week of Monday, April 4 (see sidebar for all available class times).
Stone Creek Golf Club surrounds golfers in lush scenery while they sharpen their swings and polish their putting. Experienced instructors mentor beginners in lessons designed to equip greens greenhorns with the fundamentals of the game. In groups of at least five and no more than 12, students can work on turning their drives into precise frozen ropes or fine-tune grips until their hands become useless for anything but brandishing metal rods. To aid in their links education, pupils also receive a DVD of tips and a rule book so they can brush up on the finer points of hole-hunting. Stone Creek provides complimentary clubs to students who lack a quiver of their own or melted their irons to make a statue of their kindergarten teacher.
