Mark Twain once called golf "a good walk spoiled," due to the then-popular misconception that if you left a beautiful golf course out in the sun, it would fester and burst. Chip away at his ignorance with this Groupon.

Continental Golf Course
Palm fronds rustle in the breeze at Continental Golf Course, where players traverse a lush landscape of Bermuda grass under the gaze of a picturesque mountain peak in the distance. Designed by Greg H. Nash and Jeff D. Hardin, the relatively short layout surrounds two lakes, with water coming into play on multiple holes. On the 360-yard ninth hole—the course’s second most difficult—a narrow fairway leads to a small green protected by a right-side bunker and feral golf carts picketing for caddy status. The course's most challenging hole, the par-4 18th, presents a 340-yard dogleg right replete with intersecting waterways at the bend. Although the course lacks par 5s, the diverse landscape presents challenges for golfers of all stripes, from greenhorns to green-jacket holders.
Before or after rounds, golfers can refuel at the restaurant or drop by the driving range to stretch out their swings or employ the sage wisdom of an on-site golf pro during lessons.
