The dimples on a golf ball help it fly farther with greater accuracy, just as the dimples on a baby help it steal candy from gullible strangers. Find your adorably sporty sweet spots with today's Groupon: for $25, you get an 18-hole round of golf for two with cart rental at Dream Valley Golf Course in Buffalo (up to a $64 value).
Dream Valley Golf Course is cleaved into the Dallas County countryside with lush grounds that billet seven ponds and a visible farmland perimeter dotted with grazing livestock and emerald foliage. The course is peppered with forgiving, tree-lined fairways, yet demands strategic course management from golfers of all stripes, from scratch golfers to century-old swingers. On the par 4 fourth hole, golfers must either attack the 365-yard dogleg right by crushing a forced carry over the large pond intersecting the fairway or laying up about 160–180 yards for a more manageable second shot. In order to finish the round, duffers must conquer the 510-yard 18th, which is protected by a pond to the right, a creek lining the entire hole on the left, and troves of heckling ball washers just beyond the green.
Save swing energy by scooting around the course in a personal golf cart. Dream Valley offers no tee-time restrictions, so golfers can enjoy their first drive as soon as Mercury enters the second house.
Dream Valley Golf Course
Dream Valley Golf Course’s 18-hole layout unfurls across 6,255 yards of pristine fairways kissed by seven ponds amid a farmland perimeter teeming with lush foliage. Though mostly characterized by forgiving, tree-lined fairways, the course’s inventive layout requires adept course management with many twisting hole designs and flagsticks that double as jousting sticks during golf-cart battles. A dramatic dogleg right on the par-4 fourth forms the course’s hardest-rated hole, wherein golfers must either attack the 365-yard corridor by crushing a forced carry over a large pond or lay up about 160–180 yards for a safer but less rewarding tee shot. Clubbers can careen across the emerald meadows on their own spiky-soled feet or enlist the help of the club’s stock of rental carts, which help loop the links efficiently while insisting on being called a Mars rover-in-training.
