Like suntans and long-distance relationships, golf skills disappear if you don't keep working at them. Keep the magic alive while enjoying plush accommodations with today's Groupon: for $169, two people get a one-night stay and a round of golf (up to a $360 value) at Barton Creek Resort & Spa, a Golf magazine 2010 Silver Medal Premier Resort. An obligatory 9% resort charge (not included in this deal) includes access to the health club, housekeeper gratuity, golf-bag storage, the daily newspaper, resort shuttles, and in-room coffee. Reservations are required, just like wearing a helmet while boxing a kangaroo.
Barton Creek Resort & Spa combines golf and luxe accommodations in a way that doesn’t require visitors to practice putting in their room’s bathtub. Each 425-square-foot resort guest room comes with one king or two queen beds—just like a Porsche—as well as a TV, in-room safe, robes, a stocked refreshment center, and a soothing gaggle of homing pigeons. Soak away stress in an outdoor pool or whirlpool before hitting the links, where swinging duos can tee off at one of two impeccably maintained and inventively designed golf courses. Choose from two field of play with both the Palmer Lakeside and Crenshaw Cliffside courses boasting more than 6,600 yards of lush fairways that fluidly meld with the contours of the natural terrain like gourmet peanut butter stuck to the roof of one’s mouth.
Rather than awkwardly hinting at a roommate to place chocolates on your pillow every morning or calling 911 operators in the wee hours of the night to demand room service, opt for a relaxing stay and a round of golf at Barton Creek Resort & Spa. With luxurious accommodations, world-class golfing, and an unusually low hotel record of shark attacks, it’s the perfect weekend getaway, romantic getaway, or getaway to watch the Charlie Sheen movie The Getaway.
