Like suntans and the ability to throw knives at apples on top of totem poles, golf skills disappear if you don't keep working at them. Keep the magic alive with today's Groupon: for $55, you get a one-hour private golf lesson from a head instructor (a $110 value) at Tour Academy Hilton Head at Port Royal Golf Club, located on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.
Recommended by Golf Magazine, Tour Academy teaches golfers how to better pendulate their putters with a slice-fighting array of instructional techniques. A private lesson from head instructor and PGA member Ed Brill uses a state-of-the-art video swing analysis before teaching the fundamentals of ball-flight laws, the development of a pre-shot routine, and how to use a written game plan. Port Royal Golf Club's coastline green is surrounded by mounds of majestic marshland, with 54 holes cutting through a labyrinth of magnolias and live oaks. The course itself sits atop former Civil War grounds and is peppered with historical markers that chronicle significant wartime events. For students without sphere-pounding clubs, Tour Academy provides an arsenal of driving, chipping, and putting tools.
- The academy features a private practice area, a putting and chipping green, practice bunkers and cutting edge diagnostic technologies. – Joe Killian, Examiner.com
