Nowadays you can use golf as an excuse to get away from family game nights, family meetings, or family golf getaways. Escape excruciating moments with today's Groupon: for $96, you get a round of golf with golf cart rental at six Chicago Park District Golf courses (a $191 value). The courses include Robert A. Black, Sydney R. Marovitz, Columbus Park, Jackson Park, Marquette Park, and South Shore.
The Chicago Park District Golf courses welcome golf ball chasers who love golfing on the lake, receptive greens, and spacious fairways to enjoy a rousing play-through on five 9-hole greens and one 18-hole course. You can feel the breeze from the waves of Lake Michigan and the rays of the sun on your face while playing a 9-hole game with your fellow chippers at either South Shore or Sydney R. Marovitz golf course. Dodge mature hardwood trees, numerous bunkers, and immaculate greens as you direct your golf cart to the next hole. Get lucky on the 18th hole of Jackson Park's historical golf course, and come play at Robert A. Black's 9-hole par 33 golf course, designed by Dick Nugent. At Marquette Park's 9-hole golf course, you can try to swerve the ball through many elevated trees, making it challenging enough for experienced golfers.
