A skilled golfer can make his shot draw, meaning it curves left; or fade, meaning it becomes invisible to would-be ball thieves. Work on an illusory drive with today's Groupon: for $24, you get a one-hour golf lesson from Dick Stilin (a $50 value) at Sugar Grove Golf Center. This Groupon does not include the cost of golf balls ($10 for a large bucket).
PGA Professional and certified instructor Dick Stilin and his albatross-minded allies at Sugar Grove Golf Center strengthen club skills with private lessons and clinics. Dick brings his years of teaching experience to bear on each swing, turning wobbly whiffs into dead-on drives. The range's clear distance markers allow pupils to track their progress, and targets give practice for precision shots and long-distance spitballs. Lessons are available every day of the week by appointment, with slots until 11 p.m. for students with the noble dream of knocking the moon out of its orbit with a firm chip.
Sugar Grove Golf Center
Sugar Grove Golf Center helps novice golfers take up the game and veterans hone their hacks through clinics with accomplished instructors or solitary practice on the driving range. PGA-certified instructor Dick Stilin, 30-year veteran teacher Roy Pedi, and USGTF-certified instructor Ed Hildebrand remedy troubled takeaways and rusty downswings during private lessons seven days a week. Accommodating schedules allow for lesson appointments until 11 p.m. as overhead lights keep the range open past dusk, preventing the need to set golf balls on fire to make them easy to find.
