Golfers expect silence from their audiences, much like how baseball players expect fans to sing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" and NASCAR drivers are disappointed when no one listens to their midrace monologues. Practice pursed-lip etiquette with today's Groupon: for $32, you get 18 holes of golf for two and a cart rental at Bliss Creek Golf Club in Sugar Grove (up to a $70 value).
Bliss Creek Golf Club challenges par-seeking sportsmen with a pastoral chain of tree-lined links and serene natural obstacles. Iron-wielding pairs face 18 manicured holes on the par 69 course for an afternoon launching drives over strategically stationed water hazards and around slow-moving willows crossing fairways to attend upcoming Entmoots. Devious green placements impede eagle-sinking pursuits, including a recently relocated pin pasture on the first hole recognized as one of the most formidable starting holes in Chicagoland. Duos can warm up their swing at Bliss Creek's practice green and driving range, then settle into their cart to motor through the sylvan scenery or pick up hitchhiking caddies along the interstate.
Palates parched from fairway play get quenched at Bliss Creek's bar and outdoor eating area, and the on-site golf store's stock can replace lost balls, worn club grips, and polo shirts lost in cutthroat skins games. Groupon users can schedule tee times anytime Monday through Friday and after 1 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday to allow early birds ample time to clear courses of worms.
Bliss Creek Golf Club
The course at Bliss Creek Golf Club invites golfers to conquer its 5,436 yards of tree-lined fairways and greens buttressed by menacing water hazards and bunkers. After limbering up at the driving range or practice putting green, players send drives streaking down the first-hole fairway as cocktail-sipping onlookers casually applaud from the grill deck that overlooks the verdant alleyway. Rounds of 18 typically clock in at less than four hours, leaving players plenty of daylight for cooling off in water hazards or borrowing bunker sand for pleasant dreams that bring back the mashie niblick club.
