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: to Valley Hi Golf Course. Choose between the following options:
- For $30, you get a 10-punch driving-range pass for a large bucket of balls with each punch (a $60 value).
- For $49, you get a package of five adult Get Golf Ready lessons (a $99 value).
With the 10-punch pass option, dust-covered clubs get sliced and hooked to blinding chrome perfection at Valley Hi’s range. Guests can take aim with a bushel of white beauties to strengthen both driving abilities and Arnold Palmer impersonations. The course’s relaxing natural respite features mountain views, diverse tree life, and a trained staff of ball-fetching yetis.
The Get Golf Ready lesson package empowers beginner, intermediate, or experienced clubsmiths to sharpen swings and polish putts with five one-hour sessions spread over 2.5 weeks. One of the course’s resident PGA or LPGA professional staffers leads each lesson. An instructor-to-student ratio of 1-to-8 allows for plenty of personal attention, question answering, and tips for styling hair using golf-cart g-forces.
Valley Hi Golf Course
Valley Hi Golf Course’s 18 fairways have been flourishing with rye grass and deciduous trees since 1954, when golfers first began cursing the course’s tricky water hazards and bunker-guarded greens with old-timey swear words such as "leaping argyle!" The 1st hole boasts the course’s longest fairway, whereas the 7th hole stops short to become the shortest par five – the best hope for a birdie. The putting green at the 18th hole keeps golfers on their cleated toes until the very end by demanding, like medieval kings, to be approached from the left and on one’s knees. Those hoping to hone their game can take lessons with a staff headed by PGA golf pro Mike Northern, whose more than 30 years in the game have netted him a full trophy case. Before hitting the greens in the morning, golfers drop by the Caddie Shack Restaurant and Bar to fill their bellies with omelets, and those finishing up a later round can bite into sandwiches or burgers.
