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 $75, you get to play one round of golf in the club tournament on Monday, August 22, and one additional round of golf Monday–Thursday to be used at a later date at Aliso Viejo Country Club (a $150 value). Registration and warm-up for the tournament begin at 10 a.m., for an 11 a.m. shotgun start, and the additional round of golf must be used by December 31.
One of only two private Jack Nicklaus designs in Orange County, the course at Aliso Viejo Country Club snuggles up against the hills of Saddleback Valley, offering panoramic coastal views abutted by lush, green expanses. Gain access to the exclusive digs without donning a sandpaper suit and holing up overnight in a bunker by signing up for the club tournament on August 22, when sultans of swing unsheathe battle irons for charging fairways in a quest for the title of lowest handicap-adjusted score vis-à-vis par. Bent-grass fairways limbo underneath every approach, tall native grass ensnares errant drives, and hulking trees stretch their branches out into the breeze, groping for dimpled eggs in flight and messenger pigeons carrying love letters from redwoods. Tees crown each hole's meticulously mown head, with the back set stretching the course to 6,571 yards, allowing worm burners and cloud scratchers alike to enjoy their round. Players should check the dress code before teeing off.
