Golf with friends is the best kind of bonding. There's nothing like being out in the open air, hearing the wind blow through the beautiful old trees lining the fairways, and refusing to grant your compadres a mulligan. The satisfaction of a well-played hole is amplified by the amusement you get from your partner's three-shot spectacle in the woodsy rough. Today's Groupon gets you and a friend 18 holes with cart at River Oaks Golf Course for $40 (up to a $88 value, depending on the day you go). Your Groupon is good for any time Monday through Friday and after noon on weekends.
The Little Calumet River meanders through this narrow and challenging course, making water a serious obstacle on nearly every hole. When water-logged golfers steer too clear of the river, they risk getting stuck in one of 58 conspiratorial sand traps. An Audubon International–certified cooperative sanctuary, River Oaks is dedicated to conserving the majestic oak trees and sparkling river, without which the course would be embarrassingly riverless and oakless.
Located in Calumet City, River Oaks is easily accessible from I-94. Stop in the clubhouse for a post-golf snack, or stop by the adjacent Outback Steakhouse to fill with steak the void that golfing has no longer left.
