Like suntans and the ability to throw knives at apples on top of totem poles, golf skills disappear if you don't keep working at them. Keep the magic alive with today's Groupon: for $14, you get one round of golf at Amsterdam Municipal Golf Course (up to a $28 value). This Groupon is valid from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on weekdays and after 12 p.m. on weekends.
With rolling fairways, 18 challenging holes, and a history as robust as its emerald grass greens, Amsterdam Municipal Golf Course offers players a pristine setting in which to perfect pendulum mechanics. Tucked away in the tranquil Mohawk Valley, the course bears the architectural stamp of legendary designer Robert Trent Jones Sr. and poses challenges for all skill levels. Potentially strong headwinds can make double-bogey disasters out of routine par 3s, and winding creeks and sand-trap sharks make early graves for unwitting balls. Breathtaking views of the Mohawk Valley abound from many of the course's tee-off locations.
After a full day of brutalizing helpless balls, players can wind down at the Amsterdam Muni Clubhouse over a meal and replace clubs lost during angry fits of hunger in the pro shop. Daily cart rentals can also be paid for in the pro shop, though mulligans must be purchased from fellow players with good will or chocolate coins.
Amsterdam Municipal Golf Course's rates fluctuate throughout the week; plan ahead to make sure you're redeeming your Groupon at the most opportune time.
