Like painting a portrait or fixing a computer, completing a round of golf is always more impressive when it’s done in the pouring rain. Enjoy equally impressive fair-weathered fores with today's Groupon: for $25, you get two 18-hole rounds of golf with a cart (a $50 value) and a $10 lunch voucher at Cardinal Hills Golf Course in Selma (a $60 total value).
Cardinal Hills Golf Course unfolds across 6,338 yards of kempt corridors sculpted into lush, tree-lined terrain. Enlist a fellow linksman in a four-wheeled jaunt around the grassy grounds, sending balls soaring while avoiding the threat of territorial trees, greedy greenside bunkers, or kleptomaniacal pond frogs. Although lengthy greens such as the 550-yard 17th hole challenge driver distance, Cardinal Hills' three tee options help duffers of all club-flailing fortitude surmount verdant juggernauts. The course's proximity to the White River—which is visible but not in play—brings golfers into contact with wildlife, delivering a sense of oneness with nature and a chance to study raccoons’ short game. After traversing the earthen playground, golfers recapitulate each of their shots over grill fare such as a bratwurst with kraut ($4.75), a sudsy can of beer ($3), or a zesty plate of nachos ($3.75).
Cardinal Hills Golf Course
Cardinal Hills Golf Course caters to players of all ages and skill levels with three sets of tee boxes and a traditional layout strewn with manageable challenges. On the front nine, two ponds loom menacingly on holes 5 and 6, forcing wise club selection to avoid its murky depths or wise snorkel selection to search for ancient cartwrecks. Elsewhere on the course, eight bunkers impose their powers of intimidation and dense forests line the fairways, extending their boughs into many a flight path.
