Emerson Golf Club summons swings with 18 uniquely challenging holes. Strategically placed water hazards pepper the open terrain of the front nine, and the back nine’s tree-lined fairways provide deciduous detours for off-target tee shots. Players can navigate the courses’ sculpted bunkers and well-groomed greens with a golf cart or use their rides to transform golf games into rounds of motorized polo. Before embarking on crumpet-less tee times, players can straighten out slices on the warm-up range and master trick shots on the 3,500-square-foot practice putting green. With this Groupon, customers and their spirit guides will also receive $10 toward upscale café fare at Muzzy’s Bar & Grill, Emerson’s cozy on-site restaurant.
