Like painting a portrait or fixing a computer, completing a round of golf is always more impressive when it’s done in the pouring rain. Enjoy equally impressive fair-weathered fores with today's Groupon: for $17, you get a round of golf and cart rental at Airways Municipal Golf Course (a $34 value).
Airways Municipal Golf Course's relatively short 18-hole course spans 5,286 yards of rolling greenery, a casual yet demanding design that has been impeccably maintained since opening in 1952. From the initial skyward launch of heat-seeking spheres trying to find narrow, unforgiving fairways, the course presents plenty of risks and rewards to golfers of all skill levels. Traveling from tees to greens is made easy with a motorized cart rental; however, launching golf balls onto greens is a more difficult task. Precisely undulated greens move fast, fortified by a strong protective shield of bunkers and battalions of ball-hungry squirrels.
Airways Municipal Golf Course
Narrow fairways and small greens shape the layout at Airways Municipal Golf Course, an 18-hole course carved in the shadows of Fresno Yosemite International Airport. Tree lines and sand traps add scenic impediments to errant shots, and slick putting surfaces make for testy putts once golfers make it to the green. Before rounds, golfers can rehearse their swing at the on-site driving range.
