The dimples on a golf ball help it fly farther with greater accuracy, just as the dimples on a baby help it steal candy from gullible strangers. Find your adorably sporty sweet spots with today's Groupon: for $45, you get 18 holes of golf with cart rental at Boothbay Country Club near downtown Boothbay Harbor (up to a $95 value).
The Boothbay Country Club's 18 manicured holes span 6,356 majestic yards of prodigious pines and rolling hills. A gentle sea breeze wafts in from the harbor, rejuvenating weary-eyed clubbers and preventing them from coasting their carts off perilous slopes. Like a Sunday crossword puzzle made of diamonds, the course is as challenging as it is beautiful. The Perfect Storm, a scenic maelstrom with a par 3, may blow bold ball-belters down the fairway, and The Short Fuse belies an explosive level of difficulty with its deceiving, doe-eyed brevity.
Post-swing, cozy up to the Boothbay's Grille Room Restaurant, which is tucked into an idyllic log cabin that offers a panoramic view of the greens. The Grille's ever-evolving menu employs herbs and vegetables from its own garden, which it built from the ground-up after leaving home with nothing but the wood pulp on its back.
