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 $179, you get two green fees (a $40 value) and 10 lesson clinics (a $500 value) with 10 video swing-analysis sessions (a $450 value) at Troon North Golf Club, in Scottsdale (a $990 total value).
Troon North Golf Club tantalizes inner links urges with breathtaking courses in the heart of beautiful Arizona desert land. This Groupon gets players two rounds on the Monument Express course, a 9-hole beauty that challenges mental concentration and excites ocular receptacles. Playing just more than 1,500 yards, the Monument Express course’s design seamlessly integrates natural barriers such as cacti, boulders, and inflatable palm trees into meticulously manicured fairways and lush undulating greens with 2 par options, depending on skill level. Ideal for gaining exposure to the game or practicing tricky shots, this shortened express course can be played relatively quickly and offers a taste of the full Monument course, which was ranked in the top 50 of Golf Magazine’s Top 100 Courses You Can Play.
Before players hit these desert-oasis links, they might be advised to brush up on the fundamentals of the game with the 10 lesson clinics taught by PGA Pro Doug Hammer, held on Tuesdays and Saturdays at 4 p.m. the first three weeks of the month. A Class A member of the Southwest section of the PGA of America, Hammer uses his experience with beginners and professional golfers to provide comprehensive game instruction to athletes of all levels. Clients can also review video analysis of their swings with a certified swing critic and Ebert imitator, an incredibly efficient and immediate method of determining strengths and weaknesses associated with their strike.
- Most pick Monument because it was the original course. As far as I'm concerned you can flip a coin as to which course to play, they are both outstanding. – Scottsdale Greens
- Both courses will challenge you with arroyos, natural washes, huge saguaros, mesquite, ironwood and lush green fairways, some hidden behind boulders, high-lipped bunkers and mounds. Then there's the huge, tricky greens. – David R. Holland, Travel Golf
