Long ago, Scottish polo players longed for a game where they could explore scenic terrain, ride an obedient mechanical horse, and wear more courageously plaid knickers. Marvel in their subsequent invention with today's Groupon: for $42, you get a round of golf, golf cart, and a warm-up bucket of balls for the driving range (up to a $93 total value) at Binks Forest Golf Club in Wellington. Host to the 1990 PGA Tour Team Championship, Binks Forest Golf Club keeps its 18 holes majestic and private-clubby with lush foliage, pine tree-lined fairways, and manicured Bermuda grass fit for practiced putt-sinkers and divot addicts alike. Golfers can stretch out swings with a warm-up bucket of balls at the driving range before testing their ball-sinking mettle on the course, originally designed by PGA Tour golfer Johnny Miller and Gene Bates of Bates Golf Design Group. Since then, Binks Forest has been renovated in 2007 to increase yardage to the Championship tees, add four sets of tee boxes, and provide better training to its squad of ball-recovery squirrels.
