What You'll Get
Dating can be like assembling the silver monkey in Legends of the Hidden Temple, a challenge requiring wits, luck, and passing knowledge of primate anatomy. Skip the confusing steps of pickup artistry with today's icebreaking Groupon: for $49, you get three rounds of golf and a one-year membership to the American Singles Golf Association (up to a $197 value).
The American Singles Golf Association facilitates social meetings between singles with a mutual interest in driving dimpled orbs down the fairway. ASGA members (a $70 value for a one-year membership) forge countless new connections on regular competitive outings and at strictly social events, and guest-speaking engagements offer friendly advice on topics such as reading greens and improving overall games. With a national handicap of 25, the ASGA quashes anxiety over imperfect games, accepting as many scratches as they do 50s. Activities such as cookouts and monthly socials gather a cornucopia of zodiac signs to spark new relationships between well-matched golfers. Events and meeting intervals vary by chapter; the Central Carolinas chapter convenes in the evenings on the second Monday of each month. New members receive the added benefits of a monthly newsletter and a glinting new membership card.
Today's deal also provides a chance to swing the sticks during one round amid nearly 7,000 yards of Carolina tall pines at Olde Sycamore Golf Plantation (a $39 value). Two additional outings on the rolling piedmont of the Charlotte Golf Links (up to an $88 total value) allow golfing singles to bond by chipping their way across a scenic par 71 layout. Cart rental rates may fluctuate, so check each course website for the current rates.
