Who said golf was a rich man's game? With today's Groupon, the gorgeous Cape Cod Country Club is offering an 18-hole round of golf for just $39, cart included. To play 18 holes with a cart before 2 p.m. on a weekend normally costs $69 in the spring and $74 in the summer; today’s $39-Groupon saves you 43-47%. The CCCC is located at 48 Theatre Dr. on the border of Coonamessett Pond in North Falmouth (get driving directions).
Cape Cod Country Club is a public course with a private feel. American golf course architect Donald Ross is rumored to have planned its elegant design. Golf Digest listed it as one of the best places to play in 2008 and Golf.com calls it "beautiful". Its subtly sloped greens, lakes, and woods have hosted three USGA Massachusetts Opens, the Cape Cod Senior Open, and the Eastern Seaboard Siamese Twins Open. Everyone usually has a pleasant time at CCCC, except for John Kerry, who once lost his temper on the 17th green.
Did we mention you get a cart? Think of all the fun you can have in that cart at a fraction of the normal price! It’s cheaper than renting a Budget van and does less damage to the green when you speed across it. And CCCC doesn't know this yet, but tomorrow we're featuring a great Groupon deal on nitrous packs pre-fit for golf carts that will rocket your cart to 150 mph.
So treat your dad to an early Father's Day present (or mom a Mother's Day's day gift) and escape from the city with your sticks and a Groupon for a great weekend at the Cape.
