Every golf course goes through a rebellious phase, sprouting water hazards, obnoxious sand traps, or an anchor tattoo on its back nine. Stifle burgeoning grass egos with today's Groupon: for $40, you get one round of golf for two at Champlain Golf Club in Gatineau (up to an $80 value). This Groupon is valid Monday–Thursday any time and Friday–Sunday after 1 p.m. Children aged 10 to 17 normally golf for free after 1 p.m. with a paying adult.
Champlain, formerly known as the Glenlea, charms visitors with a sinuous 18-hole golf course and a game-enhancing list of amenities. Anchored on an undulating landscape five minutes from Champlain Bridge, the full-service greens centre weaves holes of varying difficulty with majestic scenery and squirrel tripwire in and out of rolling hills. Before or after unleashing irons on the facility's emerald fairway, shooters can tweak their putting game or invigorate approach shots on the facility's extensive practice greens, which boast three sets of tee boxes (balls not included). Champlain bolsters its plentiful facility with a club restaurant and an abounding pro shop, where players can record their scores and decorate their khakis in bumper-sticker souvenirs.
Champlain Golf Club's rates fluctuate based on the time of day; plan ahead to make sure you're redeeming your Groupon at the most opportune time.
Champlain Golf Club
Formerly known as the Glenlea Golf Club, the Champlain Golf Club retains its antecedent's undulated 18-hole course, where both beginner and advanced golfers practice swinging and putting skills. The club's accredited CPGA instructors can guide guests on the practice greens before they take on the rolling fairways beset with obstacles such as water hazards, drainage ditches, three-tier sand castles. After invigorating rounds on the course, visitors can re-energize with a feast at the club restaurant or restock their collection of balls and irons at the pro shop.
