Because hitting on girls has irrefutably shown that improving your game is harder than just choosing an easier target, give up on real golf and head to the new mini course at Pier 25. AND, because tips are much better when not preceded by "just the…", Chelsea Piers' golf pro and all-around cool dude Josh Meyers is going to tell you how to take down the course. His advice:
The Front 9: Are straightforward enough to not warrant much help, but when lining up straight shots Meyers advises you set the ball on the tee opposite the banks, avoid the rough, and, most importantly, pay special attention to your "distance control", which has everything to do with your balls.
Hole 11: Pansies can lay up using the ramp to their left, but your best shot at a hole-in-one is shooting for the familiar hill-with-a-hole-that-funnels-to-a-lower-level. Increase your chances by setting up on the left of the tee box, giving the ball "decent speed", and aiming about 1ft left of the hole to adjust for the grade and make a clean entrance to the tunnel, the only one in the area that's even possible for.
Hole 12: Set up like a spiraling water slide,
turn on the hose, hold your hands in the air, and start sliding down it while peeing yourself 12 seems like a no-brainer but's actually one of the more skillful holes, best played by setting up on the right side of the tee box, aiming for the middle of the first turn, and avoiding banking off any walls to maintain enough speed to clear the slight lip at the end of the ramp.
Hole 17: With three boulders plunked right in the middle, copious rough to either side, and a hill on the left, the safest shot's to aim for the "right third" of the hill and curve it past the rocks for a likely two. Gangstas can attempt to go straight through the stones, though Meyers doesn't have any advice for that, so do you what you always do when it comes to getting your rocks off and aim your balls at an easier target.
