Like suntans and long-distance relationships, golf skills disappear if you don't keep working at them. Keep the magic alive with today's deal: for $99, you get four private 45-minute golf lessons from Sweet Swing Golf at Northcrest Driving Range in Duluth, plus an 18-hole round of golf with a pro at Bobby Jones Golf Club in Atlanta (a $305 value). Lessons include a club to use and a small bucket of balls, if needed; lessons are available daily beginning at 8 a.m. and ending at 10 p.m., when social mores stipulate citizens head indoors to spend quality time with their foster sea cucumbers.
Sweet Swing Golf provides one-on-one lessons ($60 each) with professional golf player and instructor Michael Hughes. A graduate of the Golf Academy of America in Myrtle Beach, Hughes has played in more than 80 professional golf tournaments throughout the southeast. He now applies his expertise to endow students with the knowledge, confidence, and blunt objects necessary to break par to pieces and sprinkle it on their gardens as fertilizer. In addition to proper swing technique, Hughes teaches nine different ball flight patterns to elucidate how varying angle and impact can affect trajectory. Lessons must be scheduled in advance via Sweet Swing's website; given adequate notice and based on availability. An ideal anniversary gift or parent-child bonding experiment, lessons at Sweet Swing welcome couples as well as kids six years and older, but cannot accommodate bitter flamingos who wish to hit balls with their plastic effigies.
Six Google Mappers award the business a perfect five stars:
- I was a complete beginner to the game in April and almost 5 months later my swing is looking a lot sweeter and I've already dropped 20 strokes on scorecard. – Google Mapper who reviewed on 8/12/2010
- After a few lessons I am already seeing a difference in my approach, stance and ultimately my swing. – Google Mapper who reviewed on 8/16/2010

Once an elite basketball player, Sweet Swing Golf head instructor Michael Hughes learned to love the game of golf later in life, transforming himself from a net-tickling gym rat to a birdie-hunting golf hamster by graduating from Myrtle Beach’s Golf Academy of America. Michael helps golfers of all skill levels to mold steady, repeatable, and flame-resistant swing techniques.
