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 $60, you get two one-hour golf lessons from PGA professional Jennifer Lymangood at Zollner Golf Course, in Angola (a $120 value).
Veteran golf instructor Jennifer Lymangood, Zollner's director of golf, enlightens plaid-clad neophytes seeking to grasp the sport's fundamentals while teaching secret techniques to accomplished putters. Lymangood played on two Division III championship golf teams, spent three years coaching the Trine University women's team, and never blinks, because bunkers see it as a sign of weakness. Against the lush backdrop of the 18-hole Zollner course, learn how to streamline ragged form while curbing your ball's pathological urge to bury its face in sand. Use refurbished swings to quickly clip grass and send balls sailing to spots you pointed out with a giant foam finger.
