Golf has been alternately called the "sport of kings," the "pinball of the forest," and "the antagonist of low-flying blimps." Enjoy this noble pastime with today's Groupon to Eagle Lake Golf Course in Roy. Choose from the following options:
• For $10, you get nine holes of golf for two (a $20 value).
• For $20, you get nine holes of golf for two, a golf-cart rental, and two small buckets of range balls (up to a $42 total value).
Eagle Lake Golf Course challenges players of all skill levels with nine holes and lets them sharpen swings further on an expansive driving range. Wooded acres surround the course, and each hole features four different tees of varying difficulty, enhancing the course's replay value. The course is pleasant to walk, but it's also pleasant to view as an impressionistic blur while driving the optional golf cart. Along with the cart, golfers will be able to tote small buckets of range balls—which contain 40 balls each—that can be smacked from the safety of the driving range's covered tees, gently vaulted across the pitching and chipping greens, or kicked foosball-style across the putting area when no one is looking.
Though Eagle Lake Golf Course sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Eagle Lake Golf Course
The rye-grass fairways at Eagle Lake Golf Course twine around three ponds and a smattering of bunkers. As nine-hole rounds commence, golfers face a long, wide fairway that encourages long drives, and the fifth hole’s dogleg left calls for expertly dispatched curve balls. The course’s driving range boasts 20 covered stalls, lighted from April through October; 8 of them are heated for hatching golf balls into chicks during the winter. A putting green, chipping green, and 60-yard pitching green round out the practice area, and guests can also take advantage of professional guidance in lessons.
Eagle Lake Golf Course also offers mining-themed miniature golf for the entertainment of smaller-scale gamers. The course's 18 holes of putt-putt wend past diminutive waterfalls and around three mountains, including a 12-foot peak with mine shafts and mining carts.
