What You'll Get
Golf's greens keepers continually fight to maintain course integrity against subterranean residents, including snakes, gophers, and reanimated dinosaur skeletons. Make your mark on the golf course with today's Groupon: for $60, you get enrollment into an 18-hole tournament competition and an additional round of golf with cart for a later date at Aliso Viejo Country Club, in Aliso Viejo (a $120 value). Choose between the following tournament dates:
- Monday, May 9 (Registration and warm-up begin at 10 a.m. for an 11 a.m. start time.)
- Monday, May 16 (Registration and warm-up begin at 10 a.m. for an 11 a.m. start time.)
One of only two private Orange County courses designed by Jack Nicklaus, the Aliso Viejo Country Club course spans 6,571 yards of serene coastal-mountain terrain. Today's Groupon allows you to loop these lush meadows twice—once in an orb-smashing tournament against other club-wielding cadets and then in a more leisurely affair on any Wednesday or Thursday. (The posttournament round can be booked four days in advance.) Bisect the course's kempt Bermuda-grass fairways with a well-placed drive, then conquer the slick contours of bent-grass greens with an apt approach or classic Trojan golf-bag ambush. Nature-loving golf balls will relish the opportunity to investigate the tall, native grass that claims ill-struck drives and long irons, and obedient carts help you find prized spheroids and return them to short-turf civilization.
The course's three-tee layout makes it surmountable and challenging for duffers of all abilities. Aliso Viejo Country Club requests that all guests wear appropriate golf attire, meaning that divoteers should leave behind all denim accouterments and strobe-light socks.
