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 $10, you get four buckets of balls for the driving range or four games of miniature golf at Umbria Golf Center in Fort Mill. Like Laurel and Hardy or England's Big Ben and Littler Ben, Umbria Golf Center joins massive with miniature in its pairing of a professional driving range alongside a whimsical miniature-golf course. Golf clubs can grace a choice of 35 stalls, including 16 that are covered and heated, and barnstorming balls have 300 yards of greenery to glide over on the spacious driving range. Eighteen holes and a double-waterfall populate the charming mini-golf territory, and a fully stocked snack bar and pro shop provide supplies and sustenance for bravely debunking Newton's bogus first law.
Customers must bring their own clubs to the driving range, though mini-golf clubs are provided.
