Long ago, Scottish polo players longed for a game in which they could explore scenic terrain, ride an obedient mechanical horse, and wear more courageously plaid knickers. Marvel in their subsequent invention with today's Groupon for driving range balls at West Grand Golf in West Des Moines. Choose from the following options:
- For $35, you get a punch card for 10 large buckets (100–110 balls) of range balls (a $70 value).
- For $30, you get a punch card for 10 medium buckets (70–75 balls) of range balls (a $60 value).
- For $25, you get a punch card for 10 small buckets (40–50 balls) of range balls (a $50 value).
West Grand Golf houses a golf-practice center, an accolade-garnering mini-golf course, and a traditional driving range where Groupon-holders can use their buckets of balls during multiple visits. The well-designed practice center helps golfers tweak their short games on large putting and chipping greens surrounded by sand bunkers that devour misfired dimpled balls and rogue cacti. Thanks to the laser-measured target greens, clubheads can test how far and accurately they can tee off on a variety of even and uneven tees nestled in fairway- and sand-based conditions. West Grand Golf also illuminates the expansive range with stadium lighting, perfect for those who enjoy practicing before bedtime or members of the PGA tour's vampire league.
