Before golf was invented, grassy pastures were viewed as the exclusive territory of roaming sheep, herds of cattle, and overzealous Civil War re-enactors. Celebrate turf's competitive utility with today's Groupon: for $40, you get 18 holes of golf for two, plus cart rental, at Cherry Creek Golf Club in Greensburg (up to an $82 value).
Cherry Creek Golf Club's emerald terrain is ensconced by an all-natural environ of idyllic rolling hills and contoured fairways that earned it the elusive honor of being a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary. Swingers of all stripes can indulge in the recently renovated course’s four sets of tee boxes and USGA-specified bentgrass greens, all the while using their tiny pencils to sketch the surrounding forests and stealthy ball-nabbing gnomes. Between holes, guests can practice skipping balls across the course’s numerous ponds, streams, and bunkers before piling into one of Cherry Creek’s charming motorized buggies for a leisurely jaunt along the verdant bent fairways.
Although not included in today’s Groupon, players can feast on post-game grub at the Pub and Grille at Cherry Creek Golf Club. The athletic eatery boasts an outdoor patio, as well as a covered pavilion adorned with a full bar and plasma televisions tuned to the latest jousting competitions. A well-stocked pro shop arms club connoisseurs with swingers from King Cobra and Titleist, savvy golf shirts, and fairway-scouring shoes.
Cherry Creek Golf Club
Although conservation is important to the course managers at Cherry Creek Golf Club, it never comes at the expense of challenging play. Throughout the scenic 18-hole course, golfers will come face-to-grass with meticulously planned layouts that incorporate ponds, bunkers, and vistas bordered by gentle rolling hills. The first two holes epitomize the club’s course design; hole one's curving terrain and four sand bunkers require precise aim to avoid, and hole two's flowing stream adds an extra level of difficulty to an already nerve-testing approach. Course managers also take care to protect the natural setting and wildlife that inhabit the grounds, taking eco-friendly measures such as building blue bird nesting houses and improving water quality by reducing the use of harmful chemicals. Their efforts have earned the course Audubon International's Cooperative Sanctuary certification, an honor awarded to a select group of earth-minded golf courses around the country.
