Before golf was invented, grassy pastures were viewed as the exclusive territory of roaming sheep, herds of cattle, and overzealous Civil War reenactors. Celebrate turf's competitive utility with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a round of golf, cart rental, a bag of range balls, and a bottle of water at Canyon West Golf Club, located in Weatherford (up to a $71.50 value).
Canyon West’s par 72 course welcomes golfers with 6,653 yards of bermuda-grass fairways and immaculately groomed greens, as well as dramatic views across four counties visible from its elevated tee boxes. Warm up your power drive at Canyon West's driving range with a bucket of practice balls, which are exactly like regular balls except for a debilitating stage fright. Then orb thwackers will saddle up on golf carts while replenishing bodies with an included bottle of Eventide water, a far more refreshing beverage than a gallon of scalding chicken broth. Canyon West Golf Club embraces the heritage of its surroundings with 21 unique western scenes scattered throughout the course, constructed from vintage wagons, tools, and other rustic treasures, as well as eight lakes and a soothing waterfall. Designed to be user-friendly, the course features slopes that lean toward fairways and greens, rather than into the purgatory of sand traps and water hazards.
Canyon West Golf Club
The course at Canyon West Golf Club pays homage to Texas’s frontier days through vintage accoutrements and an Old West vibe. Golfers set off on an anachronistic excursion as they herd golf balls over 419 Bermuda fairways and Champion greens carpeting the foothills of Parker County. During searches for runaway balls, they may happen upon one of the 21 Western scenes strewn about the course, complete with rustic wagons and tack. Though lakes and plenty of bunkers also lie about the course ready to snag errant shots, the terrain was designed to help golfers keep the ball in play rather than allowing it to roll out of bounds or hitch a ride on a passing tumbleweed. The terrain’s natural undulations hoist golfers up for panoramic views from eight elevated tee boxes, where they can see four counties stretching out toward the horizon.
