Golf has long been accused of taking concepts from other club-centered games, borrowing croquet's dress code, juggling's need for hand-eye coordination, and polo's horse-mounted referees. Play through plagiarism with today's Groupon: for $39, you get two rounds of golf with a cart (up to an $80 value) at Brookshire Inn & Golf Club, located in Williamston.
Brookshire's Scottish-inspired course stimulates players with a classically designed green that is both challenging and accessible. Golfers meet Brookshire's neatly groomed landscape during a jaunt through the course's first nine holes, navigating a handsome canvas of manicured turf and demanding bunkers. Rolling meadows lead to an aquatically dotted back nine rife with lush vegetation, winsome marshes, and dolphin caddies. Efficiently enjoy the course's engaging shots and picturesque topography while scooting from hole to hole in one of the club's golf carts.
Brookshire Inn & Golf Club
Tucked into a bend in the Red Cedar River, the 18-hole course at Brookshire Inn & Golf Club can be found on undulant terrain filled with tricky obstacles that take several forms. Players navigate around the river and ponds, grass swales, and mounded bunkers to cover up to 6,300 yards by the time their round is through. When they sink their putts on the 18th green and spike their visors for the last time, they can retire to the clubhouse restaurant for eats such as flatbread pizzas, salads, and sandwiches.
