Golf is considered a gentlemen's game due to its emphasis on proper etiquette, colour-coordinated outfits, and the removal of all brass knuckles and inflatable billy clubs before competition. Indulge in polite competition with today's Groupon: for $59, you get a round of golf for two and cart rental at Clare Golf & Country Club in Church Point (up to a $121.90 value, including HST).
Home to former midamateur champion Rob Collins, Clare Golf & Country Club encompasses an 18-hole course populated by par 3, 4, and 5 length holes. Golfers drive gas-powered carts up to one of two tee boxes, retrieve their driver, iron, or miniature caddy from the bag, swing back, and then launch golf balls into the atmosphere. A stream stands between players and the green on hole 4, and lines of trees flank hole 18's fairway. Meanwhile, golfers can practice gravity-defying shots at the driving range (not included with this Groupon) or can talk strategy with their pitching wedge at the clubhouse.
Clare Golf & Country Club's rates fluctuate throughout the time of day and week.
Clare Golf & Country Club
Nearly half a century ago, a group of 80 golf lovers decided to transform a farm into a course where the salty breezes off of St. Mary’s Bay would blow in and grassy fairways would flourish. Their vision was realized in the founding of Clare Golf & Country Club, whose original front nine were joined by a back nine in the '80s, filling out a championship 18-hole layout. The course embraces beginners, but still challenges golfers who have earned their black belts in putting, inviting all players to exercise their long game at three par 5s while avoiding the stream wending its way among the fairways. After hiring a math-bowl champ to tally up their scorecards, players can unwind on the wraparound porch of the newly built clubhouse that replaced the course’s original farmhouse, refuel at the restaurant and bar, or drop by the pro shop for a new set of golf balls.
