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 $10, you get 18 holes of golf for one (up to a $25 value) at Afton Golf Course, located off exit 7 on I-88 in Afton. This deal can be upgraded to include a golf cart for $12 per person.
Under the birdie- and albatross-watching eyes of PGA professionals, Afton's spacious course is a verdant putter-pendulating utopia nestled in the majestic foothills of the Catskill Mountains. Lushly colored foliage enwraps swing sultans and novices in a euphoric environment for their driven bouts of spheroid-slamming, and a recently installed Rain Bird irrigation system boasts more than 200 sprinkler heads for watering the greens, fairways, and golf-ball-eating Venus fly traps sprouting throughout the course. Game-induced tummy quakes can be placated at the public clubhouse overlooking the green—with savory salad, deli, and grill fare ($3.50–$7.50) available for purchase and for putting off the outdoor patio.
