The Scots developed golf to irk common loch pests, such as merats, locharoaches, and Nessie—who to this day rarely surfaces for fear of being beaned by a well-aimed ball. Brush up your monster-vexing skills with today's Groupon: for $15, you get nine holes of golf (a $15 value/person) and pull carts for two (a $6 value/person) at Calabogie Peaks (a $42 total value), located a 90-minute drive from Ottawa in Calabogie.
Cozied up to scenic Calabogie Lake, Calabogie Peaks is a year-round resort offering nine holes of golf on Ironwoods Golf Course. The course spans 1,872 total yards and adds up to par 31 play. Hole one lulls linksmen with foot-massaging grass and an inviting drive down a straight 105-yard fairway. Play continually builds in difficulty, concluding on hole nine with 295 yards that, like discount wall nails, bend left almost 90 degrees. Along the way, club swingers surmount standing timber and waterways reaching in from Calabogie Lake. With today's deal, golfing duos pull carts to conveniently transport clubs and hitchhiking gophers from hole to hole over the walk-only terrain. After a day on the links, golfers can explore Calabogie Peaks' plenteous diversions, from dining to recreation including kayaking, cross-country biking, and caber tossing.
