Much like confronting a former bully at a high-school reunion, playing golf requires an efficient swing and at least three friends to cheer you on. Take a stand against a shank-producing stroke with today's Groupon: for $29, you get 18 holes of golf and a cart rental for one person at April Sound Country Club in Montgomery (up to a $60 value).
Savvy swingers can tee off from Tuesday to Sunday at April Sound Country Club's Lakeview course, a par 71 pathway packed with more than 6,000 yards of scenic greenery bordering Lake Conroe. Climb aboard a complimentary cart for 18 holes of swatting spheres on a course that emphasizes accurate short-iron shots. Beginners can effortlessly hit the green on the 1st shot, a par 3 hole of an easy 155 yards, and iron-wielding experts must practice patience at the trickiest tee, the 15th, a par 4 hole fraught with 442 yards of treacherous turf and windmill holograms.
Groupon-grabbing pros also get 20% off at the gift shop, and they imbibe a burger and beverage for a special price ($9.99) at the fairway-side Phoenix Grille. Tuck pirate-pilfered treasures into a locker while you putt, or procure professional knowledge with club fitting and repairs.
