Every golf course goes through a rebellious phase, sprouting water hazards, obnoxious sand traps, or an anchor tattoo on its back nine. Converse with a more mature course with today's Groupon: for $21, you get a round of golf (up to a $32 value), a bucket of range balls (a $6 value) and a brat or burger (a $4 value) at Chomonix Golf Course in Lino Lakes (up to a $42 total value). Today’s deal does not include a cart, but it is required (up to $15).
Club swingers thrive on the tree-lined fairways of Chomonix's 6,596-yard course, where the flora and fauna of Minnesota's wilderness bespeak the course's location on the Rice Creek Chain of Lakes park reserve. Water hazards pepper seven holes, and sand traps camouflaged as golf-ball resorts add excitement to each shot. With a full bucket of balls, orb whackers can improve their form and distance on the driving range, and players can practice distinguishing between real holes and invisible wormholes on the putting green nearby. Golfers quash hunger with the clubhouse's grilled brats or burgers. The course experiences little or no winter-kill, so the local flora stays healthy all year long.
