Like standardized testing, golf is a sport that requires concentration and the intangible self-assurance to close one’s eyes and just guess. Take a break from the books and put golf skills to the test with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get 18 holes of golf for two people with a cart at Beatrice Country Club (up to a $108 value).
Located just less than an hour south of Lincoln, Beatrice Country Club is a putter’s paradise that combines the luxury of a semiprivate golf club with the challenge of a par 72 championship course. The 18 traditional tree-lined holes of the Scottish-links-style course offers sweeping views of the plains and a chorus of somber bagpipes after every missed putt. With the latest round of renovations completed in 2003, there are five tees on each hole to accommodate a range of skill levels so golfers can explore every inch of the course’s 7,169 yards, which doubles as an exceptionally long catwalk for fashion-conscious caddies to show off the latest argyle knickers.
Beatrice Country Club
Beatrice Country Club’s 18-hole course unfurls across 7,169 yards of Nebraska countryside for a par 72 course that blends elements of woodland golf and a traditional, links-style layout. The majority of the course’s fairways tunnel through tight tree lines that temper aggressive impulses at the tee box like a caddy studying to be an anger-management therapist. Encroaching timbers vanish for a stretch, during which relatively open fairways run alongside water hazards and thickets of tall grass, affecting the landscape of golf’s seminal Scottish links. With five tee options, the course caters to clubbers of all stripes. Arching drives trace the sky at the onsite driving range, where duffers prepare for their round and practice balls efficiently sign waivers before launching themselves into the stratosphere.
