Manhattan – Midtown East

Indoor putting greens, driving-range stations and state-of-the-art course simulators aren't exactly par at NYC sporting-goods stores, but they're what make the 9,000-square-foot flagship of Austin-based chain Golfsmith a destination for duffers. Aspiring Tigers can test clubs from TaylorMade, Ping and Callaway, while a motion-activated camera within each driving stall analyzes stance, ball spin and hitting speed. A John McEnroe--signed mural and dozens of tennis rackets, including Roger Federer's Flexpoint Radical model from Head, will entice those who prefer volleys to chip shots.
