The Texas Summer can add a few strokes to anyone's game. Make sure yours aren't of the "heat" variety by hitting The Range: a Domain bar/resto that balances classic-masculine with future-sport via plush mahogany leather couches, vintage golf memorabilia, copious flatscreenage, and state-of-the-art simulators from Toronto-based HD Golf, who are, ahem, changing the definition of the game.
About those simulators: choose from 20 legendary courses (Pebble Beach, Spyglass, Torrey Pines...), then full-swing tee off (from fairway, rough, sand trap, etc) using real BYO or rental clubs for the ultimate first-person gaming experience, which, like so many others, will drive you to acts of violence. The system takes into account factors like swing speed and launch/failure-to-launch angle, as well as ball trajectory and spin, and the same cameras that measure flight path will create a detailed, confidence-destroying analysis of your form.
To restore that ego, quaff local craft drafts like Circle Brewing and specialty cocktails such as the Martini World Tour (vodka, St Germain, ginger, prosecco, five-spice rim). Then take a divot out of a surprisingly serious menu that covers crispy pork belly sliders, 22oz bone-in ribeyes, and grilled steak-topped pizzas -- finally, a slice that'll make you happy.
