What’s not to love about golf? A man with a golf club has the ability to bring a hushed silence over a crowd and the ability to make a little white ball fly 630 metres through the air. Then the same man with a golf club can get mass crowds to slavishly follow that little white ball. However, if you’re swing isn’t up to scratch then the experience is a little different.
The River Club gives both seasoned golfers and the not so professional golfers the chance to perfect their swing with 100 balls on the driving range. Then after this they can go out onto the Mashie course and show off their perfected swing. You’ll only have 9 holes to prove yourself though.
No longer will golf enthusiasts have to practice their favourite sport in the confines of their lounge, putting into a styrofoam cup. Challenge your neighbour or that guy who keeps drinking your special brand coffee at work to 9 holes and really show your mettle. Please note that while this Groupon sounds amazing, it doesn’t have the power to prevent you from hitting a bunker. If you like, The River Club can organise a few staff members to follow you around to each hole and treat you like a pro.
Golfing fact: The golf courses in the small German town of Nieder-Monjou in Russia are so big that golf shoes have wheels on the heels. These wheels make it easier for the golfers to get around. Caddies on the other hand have to run ahead to get to the holes before the players.
