Like suntans and the ability to throw knives at apples on top of totem poles, golf skills disappear if you don't keep working at them. Keep the magic alive with today's deal: for $45, you get a round of golf for two (up to a $68 value), a cart rental (a $24 value), and two buckets of driving range balls (an $8 value) at Buena Vista Golf Course in Taft (up to a total $100 value).
Nestled between lush, Mexican palm trees and sweeping mountain views, the rolling greens of the 18-hole Buena Vista Golf Course offer challenging terrain and picturesque surroundings to precision putters and drivers. A cart rental ferries spiked soles across each fairway providing ample gawking time to take in the adjacent farmland and nearby Buena Vista aquatic recreation area, giving sore losers or self-conscious winners something to talk about while repressing their emotions. Players can measure the accuracy of their long games with two buckets of driving-range balls before trusting themselves to disable malevolent robots via nine-iron shots to the metal sternum at 200 yards.
Buena Vista Golf Course
Tucked amid the shadows of eucalyptus trees and mexican palms, Buena Vista Golf Course roams across 6,710 yards of dramatically undulating terrain. Throughout the par-72 layout, golfers grapple with uneven lies wrought by the hilly topography, as well as large, contoured greens that require a soft touch with the putter. As players make their way from tee to green, hillcrests offer glimpses of the surrounding farmland, the two lakes that comprise Buena Vista Aquatic Recreation Center, and distant mountains as they ripple out into the horizon and hide the unsightly edge of the earth. Guests looking to polish their game can consult Buena Vista's two PGA Class A professionals, who offer private lessons and club-fitting services.
