Mark Twain once called golf a good walk spoiled, due to the then-popular misconception that if you left a beautiful golf course out in the sun, it would fester and burst. Chip away at his ignorance with this Groupon.

Beckett Ridge Golf Club
A cursory scan of the scorecard at Beckett Ridge Golf Club might excite two types of golfers: long, aggressive hitters and those who pride themselves on accuracy with the irons. The excitement is a direct result of the course's five par 5s and three par 3s, making for a par 72 setup that deviates slightly from the classic 4-12-4 model. The arrangement is the work of Jack Kidwell, a locally famous course architect who designed more than 100 courses in Ohio alone. While length is important for players who try to reach par 5 greens in two shots or one rocket launch, Mr. Kidwell saw that placement remained paramount—primarily by leaving intact the site's meandering streams and tree lines.
The first hole is a long, unforgiving par 5 that makes for a bombastic introduction to what comes—one where a forgiving first shot landing area precedes a tricky second shot uphill. Similarly, No. 13 is a par 3 that only seems like a long iron shot at first glance. An enormous, receptive green is positioned 50 feet below the tee boxes, making it play much shorter than its 195 yards.
